Covid-19 makes digital document management a priority

Although many businesses would like to switch to a digital document management system, they’re often deterred by misconceptions surrounding complexity, concerns that they have too many paper-based systems or a company culture that’s slow to embrace change. Despite this, the Covid-19 pandemic has kick-started a rising trend towards digital business processes, forcing businesses to take the plunge and upgrade or transform their approach to document management. If yours is one of the businesses yet to make the change, don’t think it’s time to make the move and enjoy the benefits of digitisation?

Digitisation gets into gear

According to a survey carried out by McKinsey Global in May 2021, the Covid-19 pandemic led to businesses urgently seeking for ways to empower remote staff working, build business resilience, reduce a reliance on manual processes and ensure visibility of workflow. As such, for many companies, digitisation of their systems became an immediate priority, forcing them to accelerate their plans by three to four years.

In the past, digitisation was often just seen as a way to cut costs. However, thanks to the pandemic, digitisation and the use of technology rose to the top of the list of critical business components.

The business benefits of hybrid mail

Our hybrid mail service has been developed by us with the aim of helping our clients streamline their business processes and improve efficiency. So, what is PDM-Post hybrid mail and how does it work?

PDM-Post covers both outgoing mail and incoming mail. Using our outgoing mail service is simple as letters are uploaded by the user to our fully secure PDM-Post portal. Correspondence can either be uploaded either as individual letters or in bulk. Post codes are validated before items are sent, therefore eliminating the expense of incorrectly addressed items. Verification of posting is sent to you via the PDM-Post portal and you’ll also receive a notification of letters which have been returned as undelivered. Lastly, a copy of every letter you send will be stored in the PDM-Post portal.

Incoming mail is received into a dedicated PO box and then delivered to our fully secure processing centre. Once received, hard copy mail is opened and the contents digitally captured before being sent directly our PDM-Post portal inbox. From this point onwards, you’ll be able to download your mail and incorporate it into the system of your choice.
