Specialist mailroom outsourcing and timed delivery company CMS has won the contract to manage four onsite mailrooms including, staffing, inbound and outbound mail and courier services for Time Inc.
The win is the first major contract in this new market for the firm whose CEO Steve Stokes outlined plans to target a number of different sectors as part of the company’s strategic growth at the Mail and Express Deliver Show earlier this year.
Mr Stokes commented: “This is a wonderful development of our service line, offering our clients the same core strengths and service excellence associated with our company whilst developing our reach to running clients’ mailrooms.
“Our clients now have the opportunity to reduce space, improve service quality, have access to trained back-up staff and still enjoy unequalled cost savings associated with our global distribution services for both mail and courier.
“We expect a number of companies to follow during the next 12 months as our clients see the very real benefits of joining up mail room functions with the outbound and inbound services we currently provide.”
CMS’ onsite facilities management service brought in by Time Inc, was one of the pillars of the company’s development drive into new markets.
Part of The Delivery Group, CMS will run four sites for Time Inc from Hampshire to London. The company will take on all mailroom staff and provide major cost savings thanks to close management controls and tight KPIs to maintain effective service levels.
Added value services include the facility to manage some elements of Time Inc’s systems offsite and further opportunities for personal growth and professional development of Time Inc’s staff as part of a major distribution and facilities management group.
