Neopost, a leading solutions provider in the postal and related digital communications industry, has supplied Animal Healthcare with a Neopost DS-85 folder-inserter. The DS-85 has allowed Animal Healthcare to automate post distribution saving the company the cost of two full-time members of staff. The company provides pet healthcare plans for veterinary practices and corporate clients to offer pet owners, to cover the cost for routine medical care. Growing success meant that increasing volumes of customer policy documents and literature needed to be distributed.
Following a demonstration, Animal Healthcare installed the Neopost DS-85 folder-inserter with sophisticated process controls to manage content and process up to 4,000 items an hour. The DS-85 handles just about any insert size or type including A4, A5, leaflets, postcards or envelopes. Up to 10 sheets can be folded into a single envelope. The DS-85 was also supplied with Neopost PrintMachine software which manages document design and can add markings to documents (such as OMR 1 and 2 tracks and 1D barcodes) that instruct the folder-inserter on envelope content.
Neopost also provided software that validates the address on each document and formats it against the Royal Mail PAF file ensuring that the documents are both deliverable and sent with the most cost effective postal charge.
Johnson, a director of Animal Health commented, “We have achieved a definite
return on investment using the DS-85. To process the mail volumes we are
distributing now would have required two full-time members of staff, so it’s
definitely paying for itself. Now we just need a staff member to set up the job
and the machine does the rest, faster and more accurately than any manual
