- Our Approach
In short, MailXstream’s automated print and mail service uses document and component recognition techniques to prepare your communications for automatic production. Using an order template designed exclusively for you, MailXstream validates, segments and optimizes your document for production in our state-of-the-art facility. The end result is a streamlined online print-to-mail production process which eliminates the everyday hassle and costs associated with in-house printing, folding, stuffing and mailing processes.
To get started with our outsourced print and mail service, supply a sample document for analysis. We’ll review the document components and characteristics to determine whether it is suitable for MailXstream’s automated print-to-mail service. If it is, we’ll build an order template using production parameters that you define, such as paper and ink, simplex and/or duplex, type of envelope, and so on. If it does not meet our criteria, we’ll work with you to identify and enhance your document for MailXstream, allowing you to maintain complete control over the entire revision process. Finally, after an order template is created, simply submit an order and select your order template. MailXstream does the rest, preparing and processing your documents in our state-of-the-art facilities.
Our online print-to-mail order templates can be used over and over again, making MailXstream the preferred choice for companies that routinely mail the same document every month. Whether you have one document type or several hundred, we’ll assist you in creating order templates for each.
Whether you want the convenience of desktop-like printing or the ease of integration with your current platform, MailXstream’s outsourced print-to-mail operation simplifies and streamlines the process through a flexible range of options.
After your order has been submitted, it progresses through several steps to ensure quality, integrity, and accuracy.
Step 1: Initialization
Step 2: Segmentation
Step 3: Printing
Step 4: Inserting
Step 5: Mailing
Step 6: Real-Time Order Status and Tracking
Wanted to let you know I sent myself a "test" mailer. Got it this morning. It is freakin' awesome. Thank you so much for designing such a cool system!!!
"MailXstream has reduced the time it takes for us to handle mailings from hours to seconds and the MailXstream Team guided us through the entire process to ensure our system was compatible from day one. Highly Recommended!"
"Our company acquired a new business and we needed to quickly take over their billing operations. The bill production was a manual operation. It occurred monthly and involved two days of merging detail and summary statements by hand for each of 2000 accounts, then folding, stuffing, posting, and mailing. It was a tedious task to say the least! The folks at MailXstream were terrific. I called them asking for help only a week before our next billing cycle, sent them some sample files, and they did the rest. This was not a “run-of-the-mill job”. It involved four separate print streams that needed to be merged together. Lastly, they had to add an in-line newsletter to every package. It was a testament to the flexibility and quickness of the MailXstream system and customer service. On billing day, we uploaded the files and watched the process happen. Our bills were automatically merged, sorted, batched, printed, intelligently machine inserted, and mailed. It was a relief to our staff to eliminate the in-house manual effort."
"For clients who generate their variable length print-to-mail in the form of postscript or PDF, MailXstream gives us a means of offering a quick solution and a short setup. Custom project development and programming processes that we normally use are overkill for such projects, and we're glad to have this alternative available. It's quick and simple for all involved, yet meets all of our own production quality standards for speed, project management communication, production interfaces and even provides integrated customer status notifications. MailXstream operates as our IT arm for these projects and handles all aspects of mail-stream processing and preparation, and then bi-passes our own systems and securely routes production-ready mail-streams to our print and mail facility."
"We use a billing platform that is integrated with Crystal Reports for the generation of all customer billing. We provide many clients with electronic billing services, but there are still some who wish to receive their bills in paper form. MailXstream accepts the same format bills that we publish to our e-billing server and then preps and processes them for print-to-mail. It's simple and effective."
