Workarounds: trouble in disguise.

Today, print and mail output are critical customer touchpoints. But if your infrastructure doesn't flex, and manual processes slow you down, it's harder to adjust to customer expectations, market demands and evolving regulatory requirements. Manual steps can cause each stage of production—data creation, formatting, printing, finishing andmailing—to be disconnected, forcing intervention that's inefficient and prone to error.What's the cost of an output system that lacks flexibility, scalability and trackability? Significant.


Down to business - what print/mail operations get with ADF:

  • Control
    The ability to see, manage and report on your entire operation, across sites, from a single dashboard.
  • Efficiency
    The ability to cut costs by defining process-driven workflows, reducing labor-intensive, error-prone manual intervention, and optimizing costs through better pre- and post-print handling.
  • Flexibility
    The ability to adapt to changing business conditions, bring new work on board and manage varying types of work.
  • Scalability
    The ability to start small and adapt, by being able to add/remove hardware or software yet keep your same primary infrastructure, without massive disruption for seemingly small changes.
  • Integrity
    The ability to monitor each document through the entire production process, reconcile jobs and remain in compliance with your organization's requirements.

See all, manage all.

With ADF, you get a single point of control to better track and access every document. Meet service level agreements and ever-changing compliance rules. Get better visibility into operator performance, to make the most of your people. Devise new ways to optimize postage for maximum discounts.
