Digital Mailroom Service

Implementing a Digital Mailroom can reduce your company’s manual handling costs and allow authorised employees to access electronic documents remotely.

By handling incoming mail digitally, organisations can reduce manual handling costs and free up time and resources for other important business activities. . We use advanced document scanning and automated data capture technologies to digitise incoming paper mail, classify it, and distribute it to your users through our secure online mail portal.

We receive the mail daily via a dedicated PO Box or mail forwarding and then digitise it and distribute it to your users. Original documents, such as passports and licenses, are returned after scanning, and junk mail is temporarily stored and then securely destroyed.

The Digital Mailroom Process

Streamlining your mail delivery


Incoming Mail

Each day, the incoming mail is received, checked, and logged into our tracking system. Any details provided by An Post or third-party courier companies are also recorded. Customers have full access to a daily log of what has been received and logged into the system for processing.



The incoming mail is opened, checked, and sorted into the appropriate categories. Any specific handling procedures are applied to ensure that the mail is organised correctly. Junk mail is discarded but may be temporarily stored for a specific period of time, depending on the customer’s needs, before being securely destroyed.



Each piece of mail is scanned and converted into PDF format. Documents of various sizes, from A5 to A0, can be scanned in black and white or colour. Bound documents such as passports and licenses can be scanned using specialised overhead scanners to produce high-quality digital files.



Optical Character Recognition technology can be used to turn scanned documents into text-searchable PDFs, providing enhanced search capabilities and allowing for more flexible document retrieval.



According to each client’s mail processing specifications, the scanned documents are sorted into the required categories and types. The processed mail is then made available to individual users through a secure online portal.



The physical mail is temporarily stored before being returned or securely destroyed. Original documents like passports, licenses, bills, and bank statements are usually returned to the sender.
