Print Image Network Ltd, one of the UK’s leading providers of local authority electoral printing services, is due to launch a new service at the Association of Electoral Administrators Conference, 2 -5 March 2014.

Network Post is the latest addition to Print Image Network’s print service portfolio and has been designed to assist local authorities with small non-complex, A4 mailings. The service allows local councils to free-up internal resource during busy election periods as Individual Electoral Registration (IER), European and local elections fast-approach, by printing, compiling and posting mailings on their behalf.

Network Post allows local councils to delegate the print management of small ad-hoc mailings such as confirmation letters, postal vote applications, UC1s and IER confirmation letters.  The system lets users produce A4 mailings on their desktop and with one click sends them to a secure, centralised facility where Print Image Network will continue the print and posting element of the job.  This allows council staff to get on with more productive tasks.­­­­­

John Foster, Managing Director of Print Image Network said of the new print and mailing service “At Print Image we understand that 2014 will present a number of challenges to our customers and that’s why, as well managing large print runs of more complex mailings such as HEFs and ITRs we have introduced Network Post which helps customers manage their smaller, less complex print runs”. He continued “A mailshot may seem a simple task to carry out, however when you add up the components sometimes the simplest job can take an entire morning or afternoon out of a work day. This service will help our customers better manage their internal resource allowing for a more productive work day”.

With no set-up costs and just a simple printer driver download needed to start printing, the electoral printing specialists are launching the service at the forthcoming AEA conference in March where local authorities will be able to see first-hand how the new service works.

Services Director, Steve Power is confident local councils will see the benefits “With such a big responsibility placed on local councils this year our customers will need the input of their staff more than ever. Network Post can alleviate some of the time pressures encountered by mailing jobs and save money at the same time. Printing a mailshot has lots of costs associated with it from tangibles such as paper, printers, toner and envelopes to those intangible costs which include staff time.  Network Post can print and mail a basic mailing for less than the cost of a second-class stamp and that can add up to significant savings, depending on the type of mailing”.

The AEA Conference is held on 2 – 5 March 2014 at the Hilton hotel, Blackpool.
