UK Mail achieves 43% growth in hybrid mail
UK Mail has announced double digit hybrid mail growth, peaking at 43% on the busiest trading period, with volume growth coming from businesses of all sizes across a wide range of markets including the Public Sector.
Responding to this increasing demand, UK Mail is expanding its digital offering with the launch of new services to support customers on their digital transformation journey.
Scanning and Archiving is a new service that allows customers to have all of their paper records, such as inbound mail and stored documents, digitised. UK Mail uses industry best digital scanning technology to process then upload paper records to a cloud based digital portal allowing convenient access for future document management. The portal operates in a highly secure and resilient ISO27001 environment, so Businesses can rest assured that their information is safe and secure helping comply with GDPR requirements.
The company also launched an eBilling service, allowing businesses to replace the paper invoices sent to customers with manageable electronic documents providing cost savings of up to 75%. This is an automated process and removes the need to manually print and send invoices. Both the business and its customers gain access to an online portal where current and historic invoices are saved. With all documents in one secure place, customers have the flexibility to search, sort and download invoices at their convenience.
