Online communication is the emerging trend of the 21st century, however some businesses are returning to printed letters and cards after feeling their communication with clients and customers had become less personal.
Docsaway is a retro communication solution for businesses and entrepreneurs, offering the easiest and simplest way to deliver printed letters around the globe in a timely way.
A PDF-based solution, Docsaway is ideal for businesses wishing to automate or outsource the mailing of their paper-based, or snail mail, documents from a number of locations throughout the world.
Docsaway users have greater control over the look and feel of their printed communications, and all mailings will be on time, within budget and secure through Docsaway’s PDF password protection.
Managing director Peter Harris highlights the Docsaway service assures reliability for its customers in a global marketplace. Mr Harris said he saw a need for such a service and created Docsaway with his business partner Paul Hamlington.
“I recognised the potential for an affordable mail service that combined traditional mail with the speed of the internet at a time when many of my friends were without an internet connection,” Mr Harris explained.
“We’ve been sending paper-based documents via our mail services every day since 2003. Our systems rarely miss a beat – we check our servers every five minutes to keep our reliability promise.”
And Mr Harris’ family tree suggests he would inevitably be working with a business closely aligned to postal services, as he comes from a long line of post office operators since before 1840.
Mr Harris strongly emphasises the importance of having multiple print locations around the world, to offer such a service as a global platter.
The concept of snail mail was largely considered obsolete, yet is becoming a potent tool in new communication strategies.
According to Evan Duxbury, snail mail is not a thing of the past. “As it stands, mail is perfectly suited to making introductions with big clients, getting past stubborn gatekeepers and making memorable first impressions,” he said.
While many marketing experts might believe email is the latest and most effective trend in communication, consider this: with an estimated 247 billion emails sent per day, your chances of getting noticed are not too high, especially when contending with the fact that 80 per cent of them are spam.
Snail mail is something more than a hastily written message online; people appreciate the time that has been taken, so it reaches places email cannot and has physical persistence. Docsaway provides the vehicle to make that impression.
Docsaway, together with L-Mail, operate collectively from 29 locations throughout the world. Together, Docsaway and L-Mail form the boutique internet consultancy QiQ Communications.
L-Mail is an HTML-based solution providing the necessary tools to help turn an email into a letter.
