Outsourcing print and mail operations is an attractive opportunity for many. It can reduce costs, improve quality, streamline processes, and offer more visibility. When considering outsourcing for your print and mail operations, you’ll want to dig into why it makes good business sense. Offering his perspective on the topic, Scott Concannon, VP, Business Development for PCI Group, spoke about it on this episode of Ask the Experts.
“You can save 20-30% off the top from what a facility costs you with employees and the building. You can also save 5-7% in postage with more efficient mailing and combining volumes,” Scott said.
Regarding postage, Scott shared a story from a client. “We were able to insert more pages into a 6×9 envelope than the client, and the savings on postage alone were north of $100,000.”
Any time the mailing can move from a flat rate to a letter rate, the savings are significant, around 75 cents per piece.
