Reasons to choose a letter opener
Save time and increase productivity
A letter opener can automatically open hundreds of envelopes per minute, so employees are freed up to work on more valuable tasks. Some letter openers also extract the contents and can handle mixed mail and standard mail without the need for pre-sorting.
Improve cash flow
Delays in opening envelopes mean delays in cashing cheques so cash flow can be improved by using a letter opener, as cheques are identified and separated instantly from other mail can be banked sooner.
Customer orders can also be processed quickly and customer queries answered sooner, resulting in increased sales and customer satisfaction.
Manage incoming mail
Letter openers with an empty envelope detection facility ensure all the contents are removed from the envelope, so every single cheque, order or claim can be removed and actioned as soon as possible. The addition of optional software can help manage and monitor post-opening operations.
Protect documents from damage
Important documents like contracts or orders should not risk damage when the envelope is opened. Letter openers slit the edge of the envelope on one, two or three sides using precision blades. They even come with an anti jamming device for dealing with paper clips and staples so envelopes are opened without any damage and there are no messy trimmings to deal with either.
Improve your communications
A letter opener helps incoming mail reach the addressee quicker, reducing response times to potential customers, clients or members and boosting satisfaction with your organisation or services.
