Esker launches worldwide Mail On-Demand network

Esker has announced its new International Mail Services (IMS) solution leveraging a global network of mail production facilities capable of processing and delivering documents throughout the world, directly from enterprise applications.

The worldwide network of interconnected on-demand mail facilities guarantees mail delivery by local postal services within 24 hours of documents being generated.

Facilities in France, Spain, Belgium, the United Kingdom, the United States, Australia and Singapore provide automated mail processing through Esker’s DeliveryWare software (Esker).

‘Over 6 years ago Esker Australia set up its own mail facility to provide a complete on-demand solution to document processing and delivery for companies wanting a one-stop shop and 100% on demand service for all document processing and delivery,” said Christophe DuMonet Managing Director of Esker Australia.

“Now Esker Australia’s mail facility is part of the Esker worldwide network of on demand mail facilities and this means that Esker Australia can not only process mail from foreign based companies to their Australian customers but also address the need of Australian companies to send overseas invoices and other documents without the need for international transport and franking, hence reducing cost, time of delivery and CO2 emissions’.

Documents submitted to the Esker on Demand platform are printed, stuffed into envelopes and handed off to local postal services within one day, enabling customers to benefit from up to 45 percent savings in mail production costs. Hidden costs of mail houses and mailrooms (set-up fees, implementation and customization, maintenance and manual processes) are eliminated without compromising application integration.

Routing mail to the facility nearest to the recipient results in up to 50 percent savings on postage costs and a significant reduction in mail delivery time compared with mailing to all recipients from one location. Customers receive their invoices quicker and can pay them sooner, enabling companies to collect revenue more rapidly and subsequently lower their DSO by as much as seven days.

Mail is delivered to destinations around the world by local principal postal services partners including: Singapore Post, BPost, United States Postal Service, La Poste, Swiss Post, Royal Mail, TNT, Correos, and Australia Post.

“Esker Mail Services processes over five million pages every month for organisations around the world, making traditional business documents completely electronic for the sender. The new international element delivers additional advantages to companies, enabling them to further increase processing speed while reducing costs and mail delivery times,” said Jean-Michel Bérard, CEO and President of the Board of Directors, Esker.

“Esker is the first to offer a network of production facilities directly connected to ERP, CRM and business applications. We are seeing an increased interest from the market and anticipate our newest offer to attract many new customers.”
