Today more and more businesses are outsourcing their mailing tasks to companies offering bulk mail fulfilment solutions.
These companies offer professional and efficient mailing fulfilment which usually involves designing and printing the mail, enclosing it and sending it out for delivery. Mailing fulfilment solutions can benefit businesses in many ways, particularly when it comes to making savings. Here we will discuss how you can save money by using bulk mail fulfilment solutions.
Save on the cost of premises
If you were to carry out mailing tasks in-house, you would need somewhere for your staff to carry out the work. Not only that, but you would need somewhere to store all of your consumables and printers. Buying and leasing premises is very expensive and paying for a mail fulfilment area is completely unnecessary when you could simply outsource your mailing tasks to a fulfilment company. They will already have a warehouse where they can stock all of their consumables and carry out your businesses mailing tasks on your behalf, allowing you to concentrate on your work.
No need to buy inventory tracking software or printing equipment
Companies that carry out mailing tasks in-house have to purchase printing equipment and software to keep track of their inventory. Printing equipment and software can be expensive to purchase. After you factor in maintenance and upgrades, you can imagine just how high the cost of printing and mailing in-house is going to be. It is much more cost effective to outsource printing and mailing to a professional fulfilment company, who will simply charge you a monthly fee for their services.
Low cost consumables
Most mail fulfilment companies buy consumables like paper, envelopes and ink cartridges in bulk, enabling them to make significant savings. The savings they make are usually passed onto their clients, so they can benefit from lower costs too.
Automated printing and packing
Bulk mail fulfilment companies use machinery to print and pack mail. This not only saves time, but labour costs too. By outsourcing your mailing tasks to a fulfilment company, you can benefit from lower costs as there machines will do the work, that you would have had to employ staff to do otherwise. Outsourcing the work will be much more cost effective as you will not have to employ staff, train them and provide them with benefits such as sick and holiday pay.
Bulk postage costs
Mail fulfilment companies print, pack and send out tens of thousands of letters, packages, parcels, catalogues, brochures and leaflets every day. Due to the fact that they send out large volumes of mail on a daily basis, delivery companies usually give them big discounts on mailing costs. A reputable mail fulfilment company will pass these savings onto their customers, enabling them to lower their mailing costs significantly.
