It's time to address your mail

STREAMLINE OPERATIONS AND CONNECT DATA ACROSS BUSINESS SILOS

Leaders like you have been trying to remove, or at least reduce, paper-based information from business processes. But it’s impossible to remove paper from your workplace when paper-based mail keeps coming and continues to be a core part of your operational processes. Access to paper-based mail is an even bigger challenge when you have a distributed workforce that needs secure timely access to their mail regardless of their location.

Traditional mailrooms rely on manual systems and processes that are labor intensive and prone to human error. As organizations consider downsizing and/or optimizing real estate space, they need to streamline operations and connect data across business silos. Iron Mountain can help.

MAILROOM MODERNIZATION: EVOLVE WITH YOUR ORGANIZATION’S NEEDS

For businesses, paper-based correspondence has always been predominant and reliable. Like clockwork, mail comes in and mail goes out. But all that incoming documentation needs timely and efficient distribution, acknowledgement, and action.

Click on the boxes below to learn more about the three types of mailrooms and how you can modernize yours.

digital-mailroom-traditional

The traditional mailroom is the entry point for large volumes of inbound physical mail that requires back-office operations to sort and distribute. This can result in:

  • Delayed employee productivity to sort and deliver mail to the right person across departments
  • Poor customer experience
  • Potential compliance and regulatory ramifications
  • Loss of sensitive information
  • Greater challenges supporting a remote workforce

  • Audit tracking for improved compliance

Frequently Asked Questions

Each user is assigned to a user group, and user groups combine with data security rules to ensure that mail is properly routed to the correct people. Iron Mountain’s Implementation team ensures that the proper roles and security are in place for your organization to maintain data security and privacy.

Iron Mountain’s Implementation team meets with your organization to learn how your organization wishes to handle mail: by department, floor, individual, etc.

Iron Mountain then sets up your users, user groups and data security rules to ensure that the proper people have access to the mail. Many organizations also have an administrator who can update this hierarchy if, for example, you are out of office, and need your mail temporarily rerouted.

You are able to select from several disposition options for your physical mail:

  • Your physical mail is returned to you
  • Your physical mail is stored in an Iron Mountain record center
  • Your physical mail is shredded
