POSTStream® Optimisation services

Almost every second letter sent in the UK is a transactional mail piece, be it an invoice, bank statement or a palyroll notice. These letters are typically produced by larger business or billing systems creating print ready formats for high volume printing.

iSort postal optimisation

The constant challenge to businesses producing such mailings is to maximise efficiency at every stage of the process, and with by far the largest proportion of cost residing in the postal distribution area, POSTStream optimisation services can save corporations considerable sums of money.

A range of options are available to you to enable your organisation to benefit from our dynamic postal optimisation, whether you use just Royal Mail or both Royal Mail and a DSA postal operator such as UK Mail or Secured Mail.

We are also able to facilitate the creation of extraordinary production processes whereby an example of this would be your organisation's manual fulfilment processes. Using iSortTM dynamic optimisation we are able to identify in real time the correct weight and size and the optimal associated postage cost for items that are destined for manual completion. This removes the need for operational staff to make decisions about the individual postage costs per mail item being processed manually thereby once again ensuring the lowest cost per mailing run.

POSTStream® Optimisation Process

Each of our POSTStream postal management services has the iSortTM software technology at the heart of its operation. The iSortTM software sits in your mail creation process, between your IT System generating the data required for your mailing run and your print & mail provider (either in house at your company or at a 3rd party managed service company).
