Mail Printing & Processing Sessions

The following courses will be presented at MAILCOM ’17:


Is There a Million Dollars on Your Shop Floor?

Postage is the most expensive component of any mailing budget. Consider this: a business sending 75 million mailpieces a year could save three-quarters of a million dollars annually by dropping postage one cent per piece. One of the biggest cost savings opportunities is bringing presort operations in house, rather than outsourcing to a presort bureau. This is easier to do than you might think with a well-planned automation process. There’s true value to an organization when printing hardware and postal presort software are integrated in the mail induction workflow. The combination of the automation capabilities of the software and hardware you are already investing in creates additional uplift beyond the savings each could possibly create independently. In this session, you will gain an understanding of the true value of integration and automation. You will also take away: Actionable information that will help understand maximizing postage optimization, including benefits in savings, timing, and delivery, an evaluation toolkit that will help you calculate potential postage savings when taking processing in house versus outsourcing. These savings can improve the bottom line or free up money for re-investment. Learn more in this joint presentation of industry leaders, Canon Solutions America and BCC Software.
