ATLANTA, Ga. – Most courier companies may be offering on-line tracking capabilities these days, but UPS has gone a step further with a program that purchases and leases computers to do the work.

The delivery giant announced in April that it has partnered with four computer makers – Compaq, Dell, Gateway and IBM – to create the UPS Online Advantage program. The hardware is pre-loaded with UPS OnLine WorldShip software and Microsoft Small Business software. So if you use the program, you ship UPS.

Standard systems include 64 MB of RAM, 6.4GB hard drive, 32x CD ROM, 3.4-inch disk drive, 56K modem, Windows 98, a 15-inch color monitor and three-year, on-site service.

This builds on a recently announced plan by UPS Capital Corp. that finances everything from copiers to office furniture and warehouse equipment worth up to $250,000. n
