Digital Mailroom – Business Consultancy Services
The first step in developing your digital mailroom solution
Understanding your business processes
Digital mailroom solutions go much further than simply streamlining and accelerating mail delivery. Digital mailroom technology also has potentially beneficial implications for how it interfaces with your downstream business processes and the resulting effect on overall business performance.
To help you get the most out of a digital mailroom solution, our consultants begin with a thorough assessment of your current and future business processes and the documents they involve, as well as your resources and IT infrastructure. Implementing an automated mailroom workflow will change the way your business works and we will go to some lengths to help you assess the implications.
What are your requirements?
A review of your business and technical requirements will not only identify which mailroom software and hardware combinations will be the best fit for your business, but also help you decide whether an installed, hosted or outsourced mailroom solution will best meet your business needs and assess the different costing and ROI implications.
How can digital mailroom help with your compliance?
Because digital mailroom solutions are involved in handling documents the moment they enter your business, our mailroom consultancy offers expert advice in reviewing document-related compliance issues. This covers implications such as data protection, document retention and traceability and will factor in the compliance management capabilities built into the document management component of our digital mailroom solutions.
How will a digital mailroom solution integrate with your existing systems?
In order to provide you with the best solution and fully exploit the latest mailroom technology, our consultants will work with your technical and management teams to ensure a mailroom solution will interface seamlessly with your existing line of business software, ERP, CRM and other database systems as well as your devices and equipment.
