Neopost Builds Modern Mailroom for Circle Housing Group

ROMFORD, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - Feb. 8, 2012) - Neopost Limited, Europe's leading supplier of mailing equipment and software, have supplied and installed a range of postal solutions for Circle Housing Group, one of the UK's leading providers of affordable housing. Included in this installation are the Neopost DS-62 folder and inserter and IS-480 mailing system, which boost productivity through increased automation and reliability, expediting the mailroom process and conserving valuable man power.

With a dedicated team of more than 2,200 staff, Circle manages more than 63,000 homes, including supported and sheltered housing, for around 200,000 people across the UK. Its mission is to enhance the life chances of its residents by providing great homes and reliable services, and building sustainable communities.

Circle mails an average of a 1,000 letters per day, providing documentation and information to tenants and contractors. In order to efficiently produce this volume of mail, Circle depends on its mailroom equipment to provide essential automation. Its existing equipment was, however, out of date, and becoming increasingly unreliable. Having decided that the mailroom equipment needed to be updated, Circle began to investigate possible replacements.

As a replacement for the folder and inserter, Neopost provided the DS-62. With a compact footprint, the DS-62 fits easily into even the most compact office environments. Providing a high level of convenience and productivity, the DS-62 collates all documents for inclusion in a letter, then folds and inserts them into an envelope. Completed envelopes are then automatically sealed and neatly stacked ready for franking.

For Circle's franking needs, Neopost provided the IS-480 mailing system. Eliminating the manual task of sorting mail by size, thickness, and weight, the IS-480 allows envelopes of various sizes and formats to be loaded together into the self-aligning feeder, then by simply pressing start the IS-480 will automatically seal and frank envelopes at a rate of 150 letters per minute. The IS-480 can also be configured to prepare mail so that it qualifies for Royal Mail's Cleanmail Advance service, providing savings of up to 16% on postage costs.

Circle's Facilities Officer, Peter Morgan, commented, "Following the installation Neopost has been very willing to provide continued support. The engineer has revisited our office to provide some extra training on the folder and inserter, and given us advice on how to manage the settings so we could maximise its productivity. Overall we couldn't be happier with the service and solutions we've received from Neopost. Our new equipment has saved countless man hours and provides us with sizeable discounts on our postage costs."
