Océ Business Services Shares Recommendations to Help Organizations to Increase Mail Management Efficiency while Containing Costs

NEW YORK (May 12, 2008) – With postage price increases taking effect today, Océ Business Services, a leader in document process management and electronic discovery, shared recommendations to help enterprises increase the efficiency of their mail management operations while containing costs.
Océ Business Service provides the following guidelines designed to help organizations address five key mail management issues:
Minimize costly flats
Fold pages and insert them into smaller envelopes. For example, inserting nine pages into a 10”x13” flat envelope will cost $1.14 in postage. Folding the same nine pages and inserting them into a 6”x9.5” envelope will cost $.59 in postage, a 49 percent savings. (A 6”x 9.5” is .5 ounces lighter than a large envelope.) In addition to folding, duplex-printing documents (copying on both sides of the page rather than one side) before mailing can reduce postage costs by minimizing both the weight and thickness of the mail piece.
