The Delivery Group has invested £800,000 in a new sortation system for its managed mail business CMS Network.
The innovative technology, provided by Bowe Systec, has been designed to improve the processing speed of a range of material from postcards and letters to magazines and poly-wrapped items.
The new sortation system, which sorts mail destined for the UK and abroad, has the capacity to handle custom delivery routes and provide full management information tracking. The software reads both typed and handwritten addresses and has the ability to print on demand either direct to mail or via a label. The system also offers a return mail function for efficient and accurate handling of undelivered or returned mail.
Steve Stokes, CEO of CMS Network, which specialises in managed mail and international courier services, said: “This investment has been part of a collaborative approach with Bowe Systec, whose UK postal market expertise is first class. Our decision to work with them was based on long standing partnership with our sister company Secured Mail.
Bowe Systec tops the list of European suppliers for high performance systems for dispatching sensitive documents such as insurance policies and plastic cards.
Sara Bradbury, Sales Manager at Bowe Systec, said: “This heralds an exciting new stage in the CMS business, enabling the company to further build on its excellent reputation in the industry.”
Steve Stokes added: “This is a hugely exciting time for CMS and we are confident that our customers will see real benefits from this investment.”
