STEPPING OUTSIDE OF YOUR COMFORT ZONE WITH AMANDA ARMENDARIZ Oftentimes, in business, we get stuck in a rut. We do the same old thing on a daily basis, following the same routines we always have — sometimes these routines were even created by our predecessors, and we just continue them when we step into that new role. Sometimes, that’s not necessarily a bad thing. After all, we often do things because they work for us and our operations, so it’s not really that surprising that we stick to the same old, same old. But many times, by sticking to the same old routine, we miss out on opportunities to improve our operations. We are afraid to step out of our comfort zone to explore new partnerships and new avenues of success. And when that’s the case, everyone is affected — the company, the workflow, and most importantly, the customers. And that is why we put together this annual HOT COMPANIES issue. It’s a way for you to get to know some of the best print and mail service providers in our industry. Take a look through the following pages and see if any of the offerings stand out to you. Sometimes, we’re not even sure exactly what we or our organization need until we come across it, but then a lightbulb goes off and we think, “Aha! My mail WOULD be better if we incorporated this service.” After all, that’s our goal at Mailing Systems Technology — to help you be the best mailer you can be, with the help of industry partners. And our annual HOT COMPANIES issue is just another avenue to achieving that goal As always, thanks for reading Mailing Systems Technology.
