Schedule when mail is being manually sorted.

When should your employees begin to check for their snail mail? Having a scheduled time for sorted mail helps everyone avoid confusion. If a package has not arrived, your employees will know soon and have more time to correct the situation.

Keep working, efficient mailroom equipment only.

It might seem like you are throwing out an investment when you get rid of old mailroom equipment. In reality, the efficiency you will add to your mailroom by not keeping around old equipment is well worth the cost.

Make sure everyone knows how to use the postage meter.

A postage meter might see relatively easy to use. But errors happen. Say you have an new employee working late to meet a deadline and they experience an error with the postage meter and have no one around to lend a helping hand.

Your mailroom will run more efficiently at all times of the day when employees know how to operate the equipment. Offer training exercises and leave detailed instructions for those who are new.

Keep mailroom workspaces organized.

Create a workspace that makes it easy for an employee to prepare a package or letter to be sent. Sending mail might not be as routine for some employees as it is for others. Clear instructions and a fully equipped workspace will help prevent them from unintentionally creating a mess for your mailroom staff to deal with.
