Framework RM6017
Status: Active

This framework offers a range of mailroom equipment, inbound and outbound mail services or more complex solutions for digital transformation of mail and communications.

Whether you use traditional mail services or would like to transform your mailroom to digital, this agreement provides a wide range of postal goods, services and solutions to support your postal requirements and strategy. No matter where you are in that journey from collection and delivery to inbound digital scanning and electronic distribution.

The agreement gives you access to traditional postal goods and services such as security screening, franking machines and mailroom equipment, collection and delivery (UK) and international mail services. It also offers audits, efficiency reviews and consultancy services to support the development of your postal services strategy and a range of inbound and outbound services to make your transition from a paper-based mailroom to a digital environment. This includes hybrid mail solutions that incorporate new technologies and innovation such as e-Communications and web-enabled communications and fully outsourced, managed service options with innovations to support a ‘digital by default’, paper lite strategy.
