Hybrid mail could save MPs £500k

If all Westminster MPs were to adopt hybrid mail for their constituency postal correspondence, then savings of up to half a million pounds could be saved in the public purse each year.

According to a new study carried out by leading document management company CFH, over £250,000 could be saved each year in postage costs alone if hybrid mail was used. Add to that cost of headed paper, envelopes and administrative time, then the resulting savings become substantial.

Dave Broadway, managing director of CFH, comments, "MPs find themselves in a dilemma. We all know that they are under constant pressure to reduce their costs. Yet they also need to maintain regular communication with their constituents.

"We have examined the postal expenses of all 635 MPs and we are certain there are significant savings that can be made without jeopardising constituency relationships. In fact, we would suggest that there is the opportunity for MPs to communicate more and spend less."

While a first class stamp for a normal letter costs 39 pence, the overall cost of posting a letter also needs to include sundries such as paper and envelope, printer cartridge, and of course administrative time. With a hybrid mail service such as CFH Docmail, the starting price of 25p (plus vat) includes all stationery, printing, enclosing, and delivering. This alleviates the need for the outlay on stationery, and allows precious administrative time to be spent on core duties.
