- rely on us to batch the mail’s contents to your specification
- have a systematic approach to distributing incoming mail contents.

How much does Mail Opening cost?
Because these services are provided on a customised basis, we do not publish standard pricing schedules. Prices are dependent on a number of factors, for example, contract length, volume of mail, resource requirements etc. and are therefore developed on a completely bespoke basis. Indicative prices may be available, but only once your requirements are fully understood.Back to top
Can Mail Opening services be integrated in our existing mailroom or document imaging operation?
Yes, they can. We could reduce the burden on your mailroom or scanning operation by opening and sorting mail prior to delivery.Back to top
How is my mail sorted after being opened?
We tailor the way in which mail is presented to you - just as you want it. That might be by document type, addressee, envelope colour, by format, with or without envelope and so forth.Back to top
Does all my mail have to be opened if I use the Mail Opening service?
