Neopost Helps New Horizons Save Time and Increase Revenue

Neopost's DS-62 folder inserter transforms the mailroom

ROMFORD, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - April 28, 2009) - New Horizons is a leading full-service advertising agency specialising in a wide variety of media. Founded in Cheshire in 1992 New Horizons has over 17 years of valuable experience in producing cost-effective marketing solutions for a multitude of successful clients with advertising budgets of all sizes.

In response to enquiries generated from national newspaper and internet advertising, New Horizons produces and sends out client reports by post. Company Director, Randal Davies, says "The Neopost DS-62 we purchased has made a huge difference to the time we spend preparing these reports for mailing. Printing, collating and packing 1,000 items in one day has suddenly become a lot more pleasurable. The machine processes the reports efficiently and we get the job done in far less time."

At New Horizons, finished and stapled reports are produced from a high-speed copier which takes the top sheet of each document from a separate tray, because these have the recipient's name and address pre-printed on them. These reports are literally 'hot off the press' and are ready to fold and place into the window envelopes.

"We have been producing over 1,000 reports every month since 1992. Over the years we have hand-folded over 180,000 documents, and I've had the paper-cuts to prove it!" says Ann-Marie Davies, the company's accounts manager. "Our mailing day is a lot more fun now and going back to doing it all manually is unthinkable! We just grab a pile of stapled reports and drop them into the feeder. The machine takes them in and they pop out into the tray, folded and sealed. It's fantastic!"

With Neopost's Load n' Go(R) facility everybody can use the DS-62. Just load the documents and envelopes and press the button to go. Just run Load n' Go and store the settings in one of the 9 available jobs.

"Anybody can fold and stuff a few envelopes, but after about 150 your shoulders start to ache and after 400 your fingerprints have worn off. And there's still another 600 to go! The folding and inserting was always the worst part, we used to have to take it in turns. I am delighted with the DS-62. I wish we'd had one ages ago."

"It has made a vast difference to the way we work. It's made our work more enjoyable and, to me, that's where its true value is. And now that it's sitting here, we can quickly process mail shots to our customers in little more than the time it takes to print out the letters. This helps us to maintain customer relationships which in turn mean better business in the longer term.

Another feature of the DS-62 is the flexfeed(R). This can be filled with smaller items to insert, such as a flyer or a reply-paid envelope. We fill this tray with a flyer advertising one of our offers." says Randal. "These are then automatically inserted into the envelopes along with the reports. This provides us with an extra revenue stream which we didn't have before."

The DS-62 is Neopost's easy to use mid level folder inserter which takes up to five items and folds them into either a DL or C5 size envelope, which is then sealed.
