International Print to Mail Solution

Hybrid Mail….what is it and is it right for your company?

If your business communicates with its’ customers in the form of statements, invoices, past due notices, financial summaries or any other form of paper based sales and marketing messages, then you need to know about Hybrid Mail. Hybrid Mail is the safest, most secure method to reach your global audience and is rapidly being implemented by companies the world over.

In an era when businesses are looking to reign in print and postage costs, the HYBRID MAIL solution must be considered by mailers both large and small. Offering businesses more communications options to reach multiple targets through a single resource point has become our driving goal. We handle managing delivery preferences, data formats, and secure transfer of your critical data in order to offer businesses a single platform that can satisfy more consumer delivery preferences than any other available offering.

Chances are you have seen countless articles telling you to abandon paper and migrate to a pure electronic form of delivery, most notably an email. Truth be told, most Corporations continue to print and mail these critical business communications, either via a costly in-house solution or via an antiquated outsourced model. They do this for safety and security reasons because sending an email is not always the right way to communicate particularly with an international audience. We realize that pure electronic delivery (meaning an email) can be much cheaper and of course faster, but what good are these attributes if your message is lost in the clutter? Given a choice, recipients of business critical communications’ prefer good old fashioned paper based print and mail over an email 5 to one….put another way, less than 20% of people choose to migrate to emails if given the choice.

There is a solution that bridges the gap between print and mail and pure electronic, which is referred to as HYBRID MAIL. Our solution is quite easy to explain, yet incredibly complex in its development and deployment. We set out to adhere to the vast demands of compliance, security, ease of use and most importantly cost savings. Today DigitalToPrint  prints and mails business critical documents in over 140 locations spanning 60 countries’ day after day.

By working with the electronic makeup of these documents, we are able to securely encrypt, then route into our global network of Document Service Providers (DSP’s) who then download, print, intelligently insert and post in the country of destination via local first class postal rates. By printing and mailing nearer to the end destination we can save our clients up to 30% over the average cost of such services. Documents sent via ASB are delivered in 3-5 days anywhere in the world…safely, securely and via trusted means.

ASB can immediately save you time, money and internal resources on your global paper based communications

Why are you printing your statements and invoices internally and then handing off to a mail house for postal injection when you can outsource the entire process via ASB saving you time, money and the environment?
ASB perfected what is today known as HYBRID MAIL….we are the only company that provides global outsourcing of your paper and electronic based communications. Via a well established print and mail network in over 50 countries at 140+ sites we can do for your communications process what no one else can.
Reengineering the global process is what we do!

Your internal print and mail process is costing you 30% more than it should

Until now your only choice in distributing business critical documents such as statements, invoices, financial summaries, newsletters etc, has been to print them locally or in-house. Then you must deliver to a local mail house or letter shop to hand off to the post office. This results in your documents taking 10- 5 days to be delivered internationally… Why not print these documents in the country of destination via our global network of approved document service providers who then directly inject into their local postal stream for 2-3 day delivery? Within 24 hours of receiving your files, your documents are produced, intelligently inserted and injected into the local postal stream. How important is it for you to save time, money and the environment?
ASB is a strategic global document automation and delivery solution that revolutionizes document - based process automation and business communications. ASB automates the exchange of critical business data between your main frame data capture process and your customers, business partners, and suppliers regardless of source, format, required output or destination.
Today customers want a choice between hard copy print and soft copy text, emails and faxes. ASB provides these choices. In addition we provide additional features such as on-line, real-time document workflow viewing, document composition, digital archiving and more. ASB combines them all and more via our bespoke platform which we call JUPITER.

“HYBRID MAIL is the most exciting thing to co me along in the print and mail industry in 25 years.”

Hybrid Mail is a term that has been in use for well over a quarter of a century. Its meaning has evolved and adapted over this period, particularly as the potential of internet based usage begun to be better understood and more securely utilized.
The classic postal definition of HYBRID MAIL assumes digital data being transformed into physical letter items at distributed print centers located closest to the final delivery address. As new forms of communications have developed, so a wider definition of HYBRID MAIL has evolved. Today delivery to the final destination can also be in other output formats such as email, text, sms or fax. Only ASB provides all of these services via a single platform
