and mail your invoices and statements in less than 15 minutes.
How does it work? The process works
- We receive your data electronically
- We map the data onto an attractive, professional-looking form that has been selected or approved by the client
- We perform a CASS certification*
- We laser print, fold, and insert your statements
- We seal, meter, and deliver your statements to the bulk mail center
*The United States Postal Service in cooperation with the
mailing industry has developed a process of evaluating address-matching
software known as CASS (Coding Accuracy Support System) certification.
This process provides software and hardware manufacturers, service
bureaus, and commercial mailers a common platform to measure the
quality of address-matching software. The purpose of CASS certification
is to continually improve the accuracy of 5-digit ZIP Codes, ZIP+4
Codes, delivery point codes and carrier route codes applied to mail.
All address lists used to produce mailings for automation rates
must be matched by CASS-certified software.
Statements & Invoices
Reduce Capital Investment. Make better use
of available capital and maintain a healthy balance sheet.
Reduce Postage. We do everything possible
to achieve maximum postal discounts. We can sort mail as low as
25.5 cents per piece. We also run your data through a postal cleansing
process. This ensures delivery of your documents therefore increasing
the numbers of payments you receive.
Reduce Inventory. We purchase all our forms
and envelopes in bulk quantities, therefore receiving large volume
discounts. We can then pass on these savings to our customers. We
also store our customers’ entire inventory for them. Customers
no longer have to haggle about high prices for materials or worry
about spending needed capital on inventory that will sit in the
warehouse. These cost are eliminated.
Reduce Equipment. Intelligent inserting equipment
and high-speed laser printers are very expensive. On top of purchasing
the equipment, consumables and maintenance for this equipment are
even more expensive. These costs are eliminated.
Increase Productivity. Employees can be doing
more productive things than hand-stuffing envelopes at the end of
the month. Eliminate functions not contributing to your bottom line.
Let ABS do your billing while you continue working, generating more
revenue and getting the most out of your personnel.
Reduce Labor. Wages is another expense you
can eliminate. Move employees to other needed positions.
Increased Flexibility. We can make the document
look any way the customer wants it to look. You are not limited
by a canned software package. We can change the fonts to reduce
the number of multiple pages or even do custom artwork. Our software
also allows us to make changes quickly, easily and inexpensively.
Increase Cash Flow. We put a delivery-point
bar code on all documents, presort all mail, and we take all of
our mail straight to the Regional Mail Center in Nashville. There
are no other third parties involved because all processing is done
in-house. Our standard statements also have a remittance piece at
the top. Customers tear the remittance piece off and put it into
a return envelope which already has a return address that is bar
coded. This allows the return piece to go through the mail stream
two days faster. Lastly, our forms are on 8.5 x 11 sheets with a
clean, clear and an easy-to-read look which eliminates confusion
for your customers.
Turnkey Operation With No Hassles. We take
the pain out of statement processing. Why spend hours or even days
processing your own statements/invoices and dealing with the post
office when you can accomplish the same thing by the press of a
button (send file) in about 15 minutes? Nobody likes producing statements.
It is costly and it takes the focus away from your core business.
You are the professional in your specific market and we are the
professionals at statement processing.

E-Commerce Solutions for the Future We have been
researching and implementing E-Commerce solutions over the last
year. We want to be ready to provide our customers with any of the
E-Commerce solutions the day they want it. We want to print and
mail all of our customers' documents for as long as the need is
there. When the time comes for Internet billing, we can make that
switch for our customers extremely seamless. The customer will experience
no delays or extraordinary costs. If we are doing a great job with
their hard copy, they will also let us continue to be their electronic
solution. We will provide any document distribution channel they
1. Web Viewing. Web viewing is a great way
for customers to archive their data and also view their documents.
A customer would send us their data. We then process and mail their
documents. The secure web server will automatically output the customer's
entire job to our website. Next, the customer simply logs on with
a user ID and password. The customer is then able to view every
single document that was processed and mailed. Each document will
look 100% identical to what was processed and mailed. Like the CD-ROM,
a customer can view, print, and fax any document.
2. Web Editing. Web Editing is an extraordinary
tool. It works slightly different than web viewing. A customer would
send their data. We then map that raw data to each individual's
document. The documents would then be output onto the website. The
customer could then log on with their user ID and password. Rather
than just viewing each document, the user would be able to edit
each document. After all changes were made to specific documents,
the customer would then resubmit their data. We then process the
data and mail the updated job.
3. Electronic Reports. Most customers receive
reports after each document mailing (see slides 22-24). These reports
are faxed or mailed. ABS has the ability and actually prefers to
e-mail these reports to our customers. After the job is processed
and mailed, the reports would be automatically e-mailed to the customer.
This Auto Email option is fully functional. The cost of this option
is $20.00 per month.
4. EBP: Electronic Bill Presentment. EBP allows
individuals to view their billing data via the Internet and mail
their payment to the vendor. EBP is an excellent value added service
for our customers and their customers. EBP allows individuals to
see their statement or invoice via the Internet. This works just
like Web Viewing except that individuals have their own User ID
and password. With this option, individuals cannot pay their statement
or invoice. They may only view it. When ABS receives the data filel,
we then extract the individuals email address into another file.
These customers will then be emailed and told they can now view
their statement online. There will be a direct link attached to
their email for them to simply click on. This is a great addition
to mailing statements and invoices. Rather than having our customers
spend thousands and thousands of dollars for Internet billing software,
security software, and newly trained employees, we provide this
service to them.
5. EBPP. Electronic Bill Presentment and Payment
allows individuals to view their billing data via the Internet and
also pay the vendor via the Internet using their credit or debit
card. EBPP works just the same as EBP but adds the ability to view
and pay. EBPP is an option we will soon have operational.
