Handling incoming post
Whether you’re a start-up, small to medium enterprise or blue chip business we all receive mail every day. Typically, you will be looking for a service to handle incoming paper and email. Quickly understanding what a document is and what you need to do with it will lead to significant organisational benefits.
Whatever industry you are in, you will receive a large amount of incoming documents. Some will feed critical business processes, some will be general correspondence and some are just a waste of time. getsix® provides solutions to understand and process your documents and, if necessary, help you scan, index, workflow and retrieve them. Our aim is to help you reduce costs and improve efficiency.
By automating the process of understanding what you are receiving and what to do with it, your organisation can receive insight and ensure focus is always on the highest priority activities.
Mail sent to your assigned PO Box address (either in Wrocław, Poznań or Warsaw) and faxes sent to your assigned dedicated Fax No. are scanned and converted into a digital image with our mailroom services.
Unscannable items such as magazines and parcels are re-routed and delivered to your desired physical address. The digital version of your mail is accessible online via any web browser anywhere in the world.
For many organisations the solution significantly reduces the cost of handling the high volume of paper they receive every day. Scanned mail can be entered into a workflow system for organisations to easily re-route the mail to another recipient or recipients.
The process also provides an instant document archive via our SharePoint based Customer Extranet for online access at a later date.
Handling incoming faxes
With the getsix® unattended fax server mailbox integration
Incoming faxed documents present a significant data and document capture problem for many reasons:
- They often originate within an organisation as paper from fax machines;
- If you have multiple fax lines, then you probably have a very large volume of paper being generated;
- Paper faxes are not always very legible or easy to read;
- Faxes originating in paper format are susceptible to being lost or misplaced.
Because of these reasons, scanning and indexing paper faxes by traditional means can be costly and time consuming. The getsix® solution works with leading fax server providers to make capturing faxes easy.
How do getsix® mailroom services for incoming mail and faxes work?
By setting up dedicated PO Box addresses, we arrange to receive your mail at our ISO:27001 accredited Poland-based facilities. We can use this system to collect mail centrally for all your business locations or individual business processes, such as invoice processing, form processing, claim handling, marketing campaigns, recruitment drives etc.
Using Kofax Capture and KTM technology, we then scan your incoming mail and route the digitised documents directly to the appropriate team, workflow or business process. Many clients also use our hosted SharePoint Document repository, which provides secure online storage of mail documents and enables viewing and retrieval by your teams from any web-enabled terminal running standard browser software.
