Return Mail Management
Misdirected mail is a lost opportunity to reach your clients and prospects. Cleaning that process is important to getting the most out of your mailing. OnCourse handles each piece of printed media returned by the U.S. Postal Service as undeliverable. Our services include: creating an image if necessary for verification, data capture via 2D bar codes or capturing information from pieces without bar codes, re-mailing the document to an updated address, updating the account record where applicable, and reporting on revised address information.
OnCourse also provides Exception Processing. Items including checks, correspondence and devices are processed and returned as per the end user rules. Finally, OnCourse can provide related services, such as secure document warehousing and destruction, that make our solution complete. Simply put, outsourcing the return mail process to OnCourse is fast, simple, and pain-free
A Fortune 500 company needed to reduce turnaround time from sales-lead acquisition to fulfillment. It had a complicated multi-vendor process — including receiving the lead via the mail, capturing the data, processing the data and fulfilling the information request. Each step had been costing them a day in time. Plus, the company’s five divisions had been using three different business models and three different groups of vendors. Beginning to end, a lead would generally take an entire week to process, hardly striking while the iron is hot.
OnCourse provided consolidation of all the front-end processing and assumed the responsibility for administering a single U.S. Post Office box to collect the leads, process the return mail and capture the data. Sales leads generated by all events were sent overnight to OnCourse for processing. OnCourse collaborated with the company to establish a single set of business rules and Service Level Agreement (SLA).
