Bill Distribution Outsourcing Options: Size doesn't matter anymore.Written by: Alice Witherow, Director of Sales & Marketing, DocuSend.

Bill processing vendors traditionally target companies with large, multidimensional client bases, offering complex, long-term service contracts that take months to negotiate, program, and implement. The services can vary substantially in price, but most provide significant savings over internally managed billing operations.
Businesses with client lists under 4,000 per billing period are often left out because they are considered too small to fit within the vendor's financial goals. The result is that many companies with small but important client bases use up valuable internal resources each month just to get their statements into their customers' hands. Those are the businesses DocuSend was designed to help.

Just as small businesses use a service to distribute payroll, DocuSend does the same thing for your bill distribution. DocuSend addresses the concerns of managers who think of outsourcing as an expensive and time-consuming process. They find the high upfront costs and expensive service charges just plain discouraging.
DocuSend offers all the benefits of large billing contracts with none of the costly sting of long-term written agreements. With no monthly minimums, you can upload 5, 10, 100, or 1000 pdf documents in minutes for as little as 80 cents (includes first class postage) per mailed envelope. Also included in that price is a report portal and an archive and retrieval (Image Bank) system.
According a wikipedia article called Print and mail outsourcing: "Outsourcing provides additional transparency, allows for more tightly controlled budgets, and can reduce expenses, saving hundreds, if not thousands of dollars per year. Additionally, the equipment and expertise required to create professional and customized pieces of collateral are often expenses that many small to mid-size firms can no longer afford. By outsourcing, some estimates show that companies can save approximately 20% on their annual printing budgets. Using a web-based service for invoicing and other important must-deliver documents can save up to 50% of the cost associated with performing this task in-house when considering envelope, paper, toner and internal labor."
