What is Digital Mailroom Management?

Digital mailroom management involves the digitization and automation of mailroom processes within an organization.

In traditionally paper-based mailrooms, it encompasses the scanning, sorting, processing, and distribution of incoming physical mail and documents using digital technologies. Advanced scanning, data capture, and workflow automation tools enable digital mailroom management that streamlines mail handling processes, reduces manual intervention, and enhances operational efficiency.

In modern multi-channel mailrooms, digital mailroom management also encompasses the processing of email attachments, portal uploads, shared mailboxes, distributed branch scans, and mobile device submissions.

Irrespective of the channel though which a document arrives, digital mailroom management enables organizations to improve productivity, reduce costs, and ensure the timely delivery of important documents to their entire workforce, both remote and in office.

What is the Mailroom Management Process?

The mailroom management process requires step-by-step execution, support, oversight, and reporting of the processing and lifecycle of incoming documents.

In traditionally paper-based mailrooms it begins by digitizing incoming physical mail and documents through scanning and OCR technology.

Born digital documents, such as email attachments, and digitized born-as-paper documents are automatically classified by document type and key routing and business data is extracted without human intervention.

The digital mail is then routed to the appropriate recipients and departments electronically, and also automatically entered into digital systems for further processing.

Digital mailroom management ensures the timely delivery and tracking of important documents. It establishes efficient workflows to route documents to the relevant recipients or departments and integrates with other business systems for data synchronization.
