Maidenhead, United Kingdom – April 04, 2012 – Cincom’s document output management solution, Cincom® ChannelStream™, recently launched the new ’Document Output Made Simple‘ website. This new site is primarily for mail-intensive businesses such as insurance providers, banks or utility companies looking to simplify their document output processes and maximise ROI in their document output strategy.
Document production and distribution consume up to 15% of revenues
According to IDC research, 11% to 15% of revenues are spent on document production, distribution and related costs. IDC further outlines that by using managed print services (MPS) alone, a savings of a fourth of the costs can be achieved by reducing ink/toner and paper consumption, lowering hardware costs, using less IT support, streamlining document workflows, improving paper document storage and reducing environmental impact.

Document output management goes beyond managing print services
Cincom ChannelStream, which recently received the premier prize of Palmarès Xplor France 2012, not only consolidates and optimises varied output streams from both old and modern applications, it also allows for select printed communications to be replaced by electronic channels. The overall cost savings and efficiency gains from ChannelStream may therefore be even more significant than the numbers provided above.
