How to Better Streamline Your Mail Center Operations

Your company probably has a focus of minimizing costs and maximizing efficiency. That means resourceful practices ensuring your mail center operations are streamlined for success. How effective are your mailroom operations and how much time are you spending on that area of your business?

Take a minute to think about the frequency of your mailing.

Really think through that part of your business.

Understanding your mailing operations and frequency can help you estimate how much time is being spent on mail processing, rather than other areas that may be more important to your business.

3 things you can do to streamline your process:

  1. Automation

The goal here should be to increase the efficiency. Make sure you have technology that makes automation possible. Have an automated system that will do things such as apply postage, sort, pickup and transport your mail.

  1. Accuracy, Speed and Cost

Work to make your mail process fast and effective. Keep accuracy rates at 99% or better and maintain transit times comparable to First Class. Take advantage of lower costs when it comes to processing and postage to save on your mailings.

  1. Knowledge and Experience

Knowledge in the mail services industry allows you to streamline your mailing process. Make sure employees have the Postal Services’ Mail Quality Control (MQC) certification to ensure this knowledge.

In addition to these, make sure you fully understand the areas that you can save on your mailing. Did you know that if your mail qualifies for First Class mail, you may be able to significantly reduce your mail costs with a mail services provider and Standard Mail rates? Review your options carefully.

Take some time to evaluate your mailing processes and use these tips to make it a more streamlined and efficient process.
