Regardless of the sector you’re in, if you send business mail/letters or invoices daily, hybrid mail will undoubtedly be beneficial for your business. At the very least it will streamline your existing mailing processes and save you up to 60% on your current costs. There are however some sectors that send larger volumes of business mail and we look at some of those below:
From fundraising campaigns to newsletters and urgent appeals, the charity sector prints a wide variety of materials. By implementing a hybrid mail process, charities can produce more targeted and personalised campaigns with the click of a button, and through API even target donors direct from their databases.
NHS & Private Healthcare
The healthcare sector generates an awful lot of mail on a daily basis. Patient referral and reminder letters, campaigns raising awareness and follow up appointment letters are all examples of the kind of confidential mail hospitals and surgeries send out. Hybrid Mail gives you full transparency, allowing you to ensure your mailings are despatched precisely when you want them to through a completely secure platform.
A number of councils nationwide are adopting hybrid mail to manage their mailings alongside housing associations and political parties to save on their existing postage costs. Due to the large volumes mailed in these sectors, the cost savings are often significant. Outsourcing their mail also allows them to focus on more business critical tasks and vastly improve productivity.
Financial & Professional Services
There are countless documents mailed daily in this sector, nearly all of them confidential and some time critical. Given Hybrid Mail allows an encrypted option, companies are safe in the knowledge their mailings are being handled securely as well as being swiftly despatched, on the very same day in required.
Property agents often send large volumes of business mail to their prospect and client base, from advertising newly listed opportunities to prospecting for sales. Hybrid Mail allows them to not only make huge cost savings on print, fulfilment and postage, but also affords them consistency with their branded materials.

By simply outsourcing the process to a hybrid solution, there was no longer a need to purchase envelopes, paper stocks, printing toners or continue with the lease on their franking machine. On top of those reductions, further savings were seen with their postal costs dropping significantly by benefitting from the potage discounts offered by Herald Chase.
