Improving Efficiency and Accuracy in Financial Group's Mail Distribution Center

Challenge: A financial group was growing steadily and was faced with a lack of accuracy and efficiency in the mail distribution center. Since they received and distributed highly sensitive insurance paperwork it was crucial for them to maintain efficiency and accuracy when expanding the sorting system.

Solution: We installed a White Twin Bin® horizontal carousel system with light trees and a software system called MailPro. The carousel system increased mail slots from 1,700 to 3,000 and the software eliminated data entry by replacing with barcode scanning.

Results: Short-term investment with long-term ROI.  Payback was realized in six months. The addition of 1,300 slots increased productivity and reduced time spent sorting and retrieving mail manually. The system eliminated the need to move or expand the building, purchase additional mailing shelves and increase the number of employees to keep the mailroom running properly.

About the Solution Provider: ScottTech is a systems integrator that specializes in secondary packaging line integration as well as warehouse and distribution systems.
