Brethertons is one of the largest firms of solicitors in Oxfordshire and Warwickshire, has acquired a Neopost IM-16 letter opener as the ideal solution for the firm’s incoming mail challenge. The Neopost IM-16 letter opener can operate at speeds of up to 300 letters per minute, so opened mail is delivered faster. It’s easy to use and very reliable, handling mixed mail without pre-sorting to open a wide range of envelope sizes.
While conventional letter openers can easily damage contents, the Neopost IM-16 uses an innovative method to neatly slit one side of the envelope, leaving no sharp borders and no messy scraps of paper littering the office. Letter contents are left undamaged, ensuring safe handling. The unique anti-jamming device easily copes with paperclips and staples.
Explaining the reasons for the purchase admin Team Leader, Kelly Johnson stated, “It was taking an hour and a half to open up to 300 letters every morning, and as the firm continued its expansion volumes were growing. Opening the mail was placing a strain on staff resources and our legal staff were not getting their incoming post until 10.30am. We trialled the Neopost letter opening machine for a week and managed to reduce the time taken to open the post by nearly half. We were shocked as to how quickly the envelopes zoom through the slitter!”
In terms of return on investment, Kelly says Brethertons has benefited from increased productivity thanks to the IM-16. “We’ve cut the time it takes to deliver the morning post by at least half an hour, which means our legal staff receive their mail soon after arriving for work instead of mid-morning. It allows my team to get the post done so they can start on other tasks.”
Overall Brethertons has been impressed with Neopost mailroom solutions and support says Kelly. “I would recommend the IM-16 letter opener to anybody. We also use Neopost franking machines at our Bicester and Rugby offices and we’re very pleased with the products and service we receive.”
