Investigate DX Savings

Overheads make constant demands on profits which is why business to business companies like Eagle Consultancy exist.

They help small through to large companies save money by offering monitoring and sourcing more cost effective exemplary service providers.

From using a franking machine instead of stamps to where you obtain ink cartridges there are ways to make savings in the day to day running of an effective enterprise.

One of the major contributors to cost saving which you may not have considered is to use DX – Document Exchange – rather than Royal Mail to correspond with other member firms.

This can minimise outlay and the service with DX is over forty years old and it has never suffered an interruption so don’t think of them as the new kids on the block trying to get business from the traditional mail delivery system.

The private network valued by DX mail users began with lawyers.

They found a more efficient method of passing sensitive data to one another than their former one of naming a time and place to exchange documents and DX was born.

Since the establishment of this service, which is not just for legal professionals, it has become a strong alternative to Royal Mail.

Internet shopping caused a surge in popularity and today over 25000 commercial clients use DX Mail in the UK.

DX savings are matched by exceptional service which makes them an attractive option.

DX monitors can establish that you are paying the correct price for postage and make cost comparisons between services and analyse individual item’s fees.

DX monitors give a client 100% visibility of records so control of usage, expenditure and efficiency is firmly in the client’s hands.

DX savings are often around 25% on a client’s previous postal expenditure.

Obviously, not all of your business associates, clients or suppliers will use DX, which is a shame as they’d save money too if they did, but as a DX mail and DX mail monitoring client you’ll be able to seek out any of them with DX addresses and learn how a mixture of Royal Mail and DX can maximise efficiency and profits.

Here’s how the costs are levied by DX which makes DX mail monitoring easier to calculate:

  • £250 membership fee.
  • An annual fee is payable.
  • Plus, larger exchange mailboxes may necessitate an additional maintenance charge.

DX savings and use means that stamp purchases are reduced.

There are fewer trips to a post office because DX mail does not require this, or queuing, and the delivery is guaranteed for next day by 9a.m. so there’s no frustrating wait for the Royal Mail delivery.

You don’t have to write addresses either. DX addresses are largely numeric e.g. 123456 London.

DX’s efficiency is enviable.

If this sounds tempting but you want to examine the figures, make comparisons and handle a change to DX mail with expert advice then please seek out an advisor who will advise on DX monitors and mail services.
