  6. 6. Mailing Spend Visibility • Most organizations lack complete information on their mailing spends including: – Equipment Inventory – Model, Serial Number, Description, Install Dates – Lease Details – Contract Number, Term, Amount, Items Covered and End of Lease Dates – Postage Spends – How much postage does each site use and what are the balances sitting in prepaid and advance accounts. – Other Mailing Costs – Meter Rental, Maintenance, Rate Change, Supplies. – Avoidable Fees – Late Fees, Finance Charges, Equipment Insurance, Loyalty Programs, Transaction Frees, Reset and Advance Fees • Lack of detail leads to significant overspending. Our average savings is 59% because we are managing this detail • Most organizations are spending thousands in fees and overcharges unknowingly. • Lack of controls lead to lost postage. The Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) established new lease rules (ASC 842) that require companies to record operating leases on the balance sheet as a liability vs. only declaring the expense on the income statement. – Must include the full future discounted value of the remaining lease obligations. – Will require that you have full visibility to all leases May 12, 2021 7

  15. 15. Home and Small Office Mail • PC Postage – Fastest growth segment of the mailing industry • Inexpensive compared to postage meters and typical costs range from $10-30 per month. • Cloud based and can be accessed from any device. • Easy to deploy and use – Within 10-15 business days, you can receive your login credentials, a scale and starter labels. There are simple online tutorials to get you started quickly. • Visibility to all history and package tracking statuses. • Some systems have multiple carrier options to process UPS®/FedEx® • Significant postage savings –some newer postage meters may come with a PC Postage subscription to get these rates. (Some newer mailing systems include PC Postage to get these discounts).

  16. 16. PC Postage – How it works • Most common remote mailing solution • Subscription model • Print from any computer with an internet connection and a printer – 4 x 6 - Shipping labels • Regular paper (To be taped to the item or use labelope) • Avery type labels (Purchased from office supply provider) – Postage stamps • Directly onto envelope (Along with destination and return address) • Stamp Sheets (Most common) – Purchased from PC Postage provider • Vendor provided label printer May 12, 2021 17
  17. 17. Cloud-Based Enterprise Options – PC Postage Enterprise PC Postage is the same as standard PC Postage with the main difference being how multiple locations can be controlled under a central administration license. This offers the following benefits: • Simplicity of onboarding new users • Reporting on all location and user activities from a central dashboard • Managing billing for subscriptions, supplies and postage • Controlling user access (This includes removing users who are no longer active) • Single Sign On - Some systems have this option to link to an active directory to eliminate password management. • If you have more than 10 locations using PC Postage, we recommend having them controlled through an enterprise license. May 12, 2021 18
  18. 18. Why is it easier for a company to send an $8 Overnight item than a $.51 letter? • Use free carrier provided solutions • Simple to use and defined process across the organization • All users can ship from any location at any time – Includes home office and traveling users. • All charges are summarized by cost center and downloadable into an excel file for uploads • Multiple ways to process – Postage Meters – PC Postage – End users purchasing Stamps • No defined process across the organization • The location determines how mail gets processed based on purchased technology – The majority of locations will need to drive to the USPS to purchase stamps and will not have the correct denominations for heavier items. • Limited visibility to postage spends. Fragmented process between vendors, petty cash and credit cards. May 12, 2021 19
  19. 19. Multi-Carrier Enterprise Mail and Shipping • Similar to enterprise PC Postage but more focused on the shipping – More robust rate shopping between carriers and service levels. – Create rules that can be enforced automatically. • Example: Only director levels have the ability to do 8:30AM shipments that cost an additional $25 each. • Example: Intercompany shipments default to 2 day or ground shipments. – Improved user management and reporting options. – Enhanced single sign-on (SSO) – Some systems provide the option to print postage stamps on the same platform as packages. – Multi-carrier capabilities provides leverage with carrier negotiations May 12, 2021 20
  20. 20. Expedited Document and Parcel Shipping Most Organizations • Contract Negotiations • Freight Audit – Looking for late shipments and items not billed at the proper carrier rates Proposed • Continue with Contract Negotiations and Freight Audit • Find additional savings in your existing spends. – Identify the key issues. – Create change management – Educate and reinforce – Continue to monitor and measure May 12, 2021 21 Outside of shipping rooms, most of your packages are sent by desktop users with little expertise and may need support to make the best decisions. This can be done through technology, education, support and continual reinforcement of best practices.

  22. 22. USPS® Permit Account Optimization We have a defined process that streamlines this spend from a visibility perspective and provides the ability to drive control and savings. • Creating visibility • Optimize the USPS Business Customer Gateway to manage all USPS activity. • Simplify funding utilizing the USPS Electronic Payment System (EPS) • Managing the USPS Enterprise PO Box Online system (ePOBOL) • Consolidating your locations into master permits • Optimize your Business Reply Mail (BRM) accounts • Identify and recover dormant permit funds May 12, 2021 23
  23. 23. Analyze your Business Reply Mail (BRM) Accounts May 12, 2021 24 Example 1: Location on Basic level with 50,000 returns $70,240 vs. $33,115 - $37,125 Savings - 53% Example 2: Location on High Volume with 250 returns $1,126 vs. $590 - $536 Savings – 48% Example 3: Location on High Volume with 500,000 returns $322,465 – $285,065 - $37,400 – 12% To find savings, it requires visibility to all your BRM accounts 2021 Rates Business Reply Mail Basics Basic High Volume QBRM Basic QBRM High Volume Annual Permit Fee $245 $245 $245 $245 Annual Account Maintenance Fee $0 $740 $740 $740 Quarterly Fee $0 $0 $0 $2,460 Total Annual Fees $245 $985 $985 $10,825 Fee per piece $0.860 $0.096 $0.072 $0.014 Postage for 1 ounce mail $0.550 $0.550 $0.532 $0.532 Total cost - Fee and Postage $1.410 $0.646 $0.604 $0.546 Annual Cost by pieces 100 $386 $1,050 $1,045 $10,880 250 $598 $1,147 $1,136 $10,962 500 $950 $1,308 $1,287 $11,098 968 $1,610 $1,610 $1,570 $11,354 1000 $1,655 $1,631 $1,589 $11,371 2500 $3,770 $2,600 $2,495 $12,190 5000 $7,295 $4,215 $4,005 $13,555 10000 $14,345 $7,445 $7,025 $16,285 25000 $35,495 $17,135 $16,085 $24,475 50000 $70,745 $33,285 $31,185 $38,125 100000 $141,245 $65,585 $61,385 $65,425 250000 $352,745 $162,485 $151,985 $147,325 500000 $705,245 $323,985 $302,985 $283,825 1000000 $1,410,245 $646,985 $604,985 $556,825
  24. 24. Outsourced Print and Mail Services • In the US, most of the production mail is processed through an outsourced mailer who has the staff, equipment and expertise. This outsourcing happened for the following reasons: – USPS® rules got more difficult for automation discounts. – Less mail expertise internally – Improved levels of automation externally May 12, 2021 25
  25. 25. Key Challenges with Outsourced Print and Mail Services 1) Lack of visibility 2) Variability in the rates paid for service fees and postage 3) Inconsistent level of detail provided on invoices 4) Lack of knowledge internally to leverage with suppliers May 12, 2021 26
  26. 26. Invoice Detail Issue • Every vendor provides different levels of detail on their invoices. Some charge at the job level while others break down each fee. • We recommend that you require vendors to provide the detail by fee so that you can understand what you are paying to compare the rates • If it is not on the invoice, request the detail on web portals or in emailed backup detail reports. May 12, 2021 27 By Job By Fee
  27. 27. Service Fee Variability May 12, 2021 28 Was the job put out to bid or was in an add on project to an existing provider? Does the vendor have a master service agreement for continual work at specific rates? What is the quantity and frequency of the mailing? What are the data processing charges? What type of stock is used for paper and envelopes? How is it printed – Type of printing technology and color or black and white? How was the piece prepared and could it all be automated or was their hand work or high levels of personalization that was required? How was it mailed and what level of postal automation was used? What third party services were used for presorting, mail forwarding or shipping? What was needed from the data besides mailing: You will find huge variations in what is charged from one service provider to another. These are the factors that have the greatest impact: Because of the difficulties in comparing jobs, most organizations have little control or knowledge of best rates.
  28. 28. Mailing Categories Mailing Categories Description Cost High to Low 1-5 (5 being the highest) Material Paper, envelopes, Pre-printed stock. 3 Data Processing The cost to receive data files and turn it into its final version. 2 Mail Automation Processing the mail list through postal software to meet the USPS® requirements. 2 Printing Putting images onto paper 4 Mail Preparation Folding, Inserting, tabbing, inkjetting addresses, hand processing into final form. 4 Postage USPS costs to mail the item. This also includes Presort services. 5 Email The cost to divert the document to be emailed vs. printed. 2 Transportation Moving mail to the USPS or closer to its final destination to reduce postage costs. 1 Data Storage Image creation, storage and retrieval typically for backup or to have e- presentment. 3 Miscellaneous Other charges based on the specifics of your project. 1 May 12, 2021 29 We have developed a process that can simplify this by the following: • Gain access to the fee level detail for all invoices. • Log each line item to one of the categories above along with subcategories based on the types of services used. • Maintain the data over periods of time to be able to compare vendors and services. • Benchmark rates and use the data for further negotiations and vendor selections.
  29. 29. Postage – Largest Expense Area May 12, 2021 30 • First Class® Mail - Personalized in correspondence – Invoice, check, confirmation statement – 1 - 5 day delivery • Marketing Mail – Everyone getting the same message outside of basic personalization – Advertising, newsletter, giving request – 4 – 12 day delivery. • Need to push your service providers for the highest levels of automation. Mail Piece Examples First-Class Mail® Retail Single Piece First-Class Mail® Metered Single Piece Typical Presort Service - First- Class Mail® First-Class Mail® - Automation Marketing Mail® - Automation Marketing Mail® Non Profit- Automation 1 Ounce #10 Envelope $0.55 $0.51 $.428-.46 $.398-.45 $.259-.304 $.138-.183 3 Ounce Newsletter (6x9) $0.95 $0.91 $.428-.46 $.398-.45 $.259-.304 $.138-.183 8 Ounce Flat (9x12) $2.40 $2.40 $2.17-2.27 $1.86-2.17 $.70-.98 $.47-.75 Postcard $0.36 $0.36 $0.293 $.269-.285 n/a n/a Single Piece Rates Automation Mail with Barcodes
  30. 30. Printing May 12, 2021 31 Second biggest cost area Technology used can have a big impact on cost - Cut sheet, roll feed, laser, ink jet, color or monochrome. What level of print suppression is used to move documents to email or web presentment? Can jobs be presented together vs as independent jobs? Are discounts offered for duplexing (2-sided printing)? New virtual printers can allow you to send jobs from user’s desktops to a continuous workflow. Allows for lower volume print. Things to consider:
  31. 31. Data Management Huge costs can be in the way your data is managed. This could be in the following areas: – Accepting data files. – Formatting data to the vendors workflow. – Formatting the documents with your customer logic. – Mail Automation processing to comply with USPS requirements. – Email, fax or texting of your documents. – Image creation and storage of your files. – Web presentment of the stored images on custom portals. Client Example: Sending invoices and paying $.004 to create backup images of each printed page. Paying $.004 per image per month for every stored image. Stored images for 24 months. They have been using this service for 5 years and have 3,600,000 images stored. Sending 75,000 invoices per month which was 150,000 images. Monthly Image Creation = $600 Monthly Image Storage = $14,400 Total Annual Cost $180,000 or $.20 per invoice mailed! With proper bidding this fee was cut in half and the storage model was changed to 18 months. Annual savings = $133,200 May 12, 2021 32
  32. 32. Vendor Strategies We recommend running an RFP (Request for Proposal) to find the best rates and service levels for your mailings. • Build a defined template where it is easy to compare rates on the main mail expenses. • Include vendors that meet the following criteria: – Can support your customers geographic areas at the lowest costs: • If all mail is local – find a local or regional providers • If mail is nationwide, look for providers that are in the middle of the country or at desirable postal hubs that can reach the majority of the country in 2-3 day delivery. – Are close to a major presort center. – Are in low cost of living areas who can pass on the savings in rates. – Have the highest level of technology to support your needs. – Specialize in your main classes of mail or industry vertical – Example: Bank Statements – Have the value-added services you need. • Compare the responders and request references. • Review account management processes for customer service and issue resolution. • Look for discounts by consolidating higher volumes of mail into fewer suppliers.

  33. 33. Presort Service Savings May 12, 2021 34 Providing visibility to where you are using presort today along with the classes of mail (First Class, Marketing Mail or International), sizes processed (Letters, flats, post cards and parcels) rates charged, volumes processed, and service standards used. Increasing the scope of Presort – Finding additional locations, classes of mail and outsourced mailings that can qualify for presort. Reducing Rates - We do this by either creating leverage positions with existing providers or performing a request for proposal to see what other service providers can support your needs. We have a database of all service providers nationally and have the top experts in the country helping manage this category. Audit Invoices - Continual audit of all presort invoices to validate that you are being billed at contract rates. We apply for refunds where applicable. Rate Change – Each year the USPS changes rates which may be altering the profitability of your mail. Small % shifts between the rate categories can lead to huge profits for presort service providers. When rates are not in their favor, they are typically passed onto the client through their annual rate addendums. enterpriseAdvocate provides a central repository for all mailings. We will document all presort invoices in our system to validate fees and to see changes over time. This data can be shared in a secure environment to those that require access.
