Category: Industry Events

Automating the mailing operation.  Automation is the new catch word in process improvement and “automation” is used in many operations within most companies.  Automation can be part of many processes, from desktop software to generic letter writing software to specific industry software for CASS, MASS, etc.  Automation in physical mailing production can be as simple as adding an extra piece of equipment or be as complex as installing a facility-wide software application.  Regardless, almost every mail production environment can benefit from one of the available automation processes.  We will explore the differing needs and benefits, including the value of adding automation to relieve human exposure to the repetitive activities and safety hazards, the involvement of hard automation in the processes in which physical mailings are produced, and the types of automation available to mailing operations.
