Relieving the Headache of Outgoing Mail Management
Despite routinely outsourcing many non-core business activities, small businesses tend to manage their outgoing mail themselves. As businesses grow, the demands on communications increase with regular and ad-hoc mailings ranging from estimates and invoices to reminders and marketing materials; not to mention staff communications. Outsourcing outgoing mail can save time and improve productivity while giving businesses insight and control over the communications process.
Consider the range and volume of communications sent out by your business and how much time and involvement staff have to give to them. Some communications are generated in one part of the business and passed to another to print, address, apply postage and mail. Then there’s email; decisions have to be made over which communications go by physical mail and which digitally.
It only takes one or more hitch to occur somewhere along the chain of production and communications can go out late, have errors in them or not go out at all. This can lead to lost revenue opportunities and, in the case of invoicing, cash flow issues. Common problems encountered include equipment malfunctions, staff absences and delays caused by backlogs, particularly at peak times.
