Mailing Address Management

Mailing Address Management -- "Operation Barcode"

We use special software that assigns an individual barcode to each address in a mail file. We are able to save departments thousands of dollars by automating their mailings through address bar coding. In fiscal year 2000, we saved over $15,000 in postage costs and our records indicate that we have saved even more postage money in 2001 due to our bar coding effort.

Mass mail processing machines that help us process your mailings.

We love this machine! We can insert 10,000 tuition statements in about 6-8 hours (we used to log in over 122 hrs. of labor by hand inserting 10,000 NCR tuition statements)!! This gem can insert up to 4 pieces of material into a #10 envelope.
