Mailcheck is 'The Standard' in mailroom audits in assuring the delivery of effective and efficient mailroom management.

The only standard independent of all postal operators in the UK that not only shows the strengths of your current operation but identifies, (after a mailroom visit) opportunities for improvement, awards a certificate of competence and advises how to reach the next stage of competence. The bronze, silver, gold and platinum Mailcheck standards show performance ratings in 14 key areas:

  • Mailroom layout
  • Internal operating conditions
  • Mailflow Management
  • Equipment usage and efficiency
  • Inward sorting processes
  • Delivery and collection processes
  • Outward sorting processes
  • Internal management operations
  • Staff performance
  • Management control systems
  • Health and Safety
  • Mail security
  • Ecological performance
  • Operational methodology

Mailcheck Plus is a step forward from Mailcheck. It involves a full mailroom efficiency study as Mailcheck but the audit is supplemented by recommendations being made for each section with a detailed report outlining how improvements can be made. Typical areas for improvement involve transport, use of couriers, productivity, frequency of collections and deliveries and equipment.

Mailcheck Complete allows you to combine the Mailcheck mailroom audit with a review of the effectiveness with which you procure postal services, assess the appropriate role of mail in the wider communication mix of your organisation, and can also measure the efficiency with which you use courier services and internal mail runs.

The Mailcheck Range is the standard in getting assurance as to the effectiveness and efficiency of your mailroom operations irrespective of which or how many postal operators, couriers or parcel companies you use..

  • The End of 1st Class

    Several European Postal administrations are starting to review the future of their mail services in light of continuing falling mail volumes.  Denmark has already announced it will cease 1st class mail and Saturday deliveries. While Direct Mail appears to be enjoying something of a resurgence and packet volumes continue to grow postal authorities are faced with a dilemma.  Insufficient 1st class volumes to justify the network costs but an E-commerce marketplace that increasingly wants items delivered with speed.  With TNT exiting from the final mile mail delivery market and Royal Mail loosing share in the crucial E-commerce market will we see a major change to the basic 1st/2nd service specification in the UK?

  • PLCWW helps businesses go digital

    After 12 years successfully supporting businesses manage their postal operations we now spend more of our time supporting the same businesses move to digital media.  More specifically to integrate their postal operation with their digital communications systems.  Recent work with local authoroties have shown how significant savings can be made even though physical and digital communications systems have to run side by side.

    The opportunities in the Uk and Europe for businesses to integrate physical and digital is significant and those that went totally digital are now moving to redevelope physical mail in a controlled way.  Recent volume data form UK and european postal administrations suggests the decline in post is flattening as companies look for ways to appeal to consumers who have sophisticated digital systems that make selling on line more difficult.
