The right statement mailing outsource service provider can help your company to save money, time, and energy – all while ensuring that your customers get accurate invoices, statements or bills in a timely manner. However, choosing the wrong company for your printing and mailing outsourcing needs can complicate a simple matter and even cost you resources that you set out to save.
Below, we’ve shared four questions you should ask of your potential statement mailing outsourcer before you agree to use their services.
How much will this service cost?
The bottom line is that a printing & mailing outsource provider should save your company money. When you are shopping for a statement\invoice printing and mailing outsource provider, ask for specific numbers when it comes to cost. At Towne Mailer, we offer an all-inclusive price quote that includes everything – paper, printing, mailing envelope, reply envelope, folding, inserting and First Class postage.
How do you ensure quality?
One of the risks of outsourcing these printing and mailing tasks is that you no longer have the control or oversight that you once had. While this can be an enormous relief when handing your task over to a competent company, it can also be a problem if your outsourcer does not properly ensure and control quality. When choosing an outsourcer, be sure to ask them to outline exactly what they do to ensure quality each time they complete a printing and mailing job.
What do you specialize in?
There are literally thousands of printing and mailing companies across the country, but that does not mean that all of them fit your needs. In truth, only a small fraction of these companies specialize in printing and mailing invoices and statements. For example, many companies print but do not mail or mail but do not print. Still other companies print and mail but specialize only in bulk mail and fliers rather than statements and invoices. At Towne Mailer, we specialize in printing and mailing statements and invoices – and all of our processes optimize that task.
What exactly are your deliverables and services?
You may be surprised to discover that different outsourcers actually include different sets of services in their quotes. While some only promise to print and mail your invoices and statements, others offer a number of other services and deliverables, including mailing reports, bad address reports, and online security measures. Before settling on an outsourcer, ask for a clear list of what services are included in their price.
