Digital documentations and document processes are the entrance points into the digital world for many companies. But often enough companies still do not use their full potential. In 2016, bitkom Research together with FP FrancotypPostalia determined that when it comes to incoming and outgoing mail, as well as archiving, many companies still do not take advantage of key features the digital world has to offer. A hybrid mail solution, like the one Francotyp-Postalia provides through its subsidiary FP IAB, can advance the digitalisation of inbox and outbox. Hybrid mail combines the best of digital and physical dispatch. “And companies that want to archive documents and business mail we support through our subsidiaries FP freesort and FP Mentana Claimsoft,” says Sven Meise, CDO at Francotyp-Postalia Holding AG.

that makes it possible to sign business correspondences and contracts digitally – easier and faster. Using the normal mailing route, it might take weeks until a contract is signed and send back and forth between the relevant parties. To make this process faster is therefore the goal of many companies, using cloud computing and digital transfer of signed documents and contracts. The problem here always is how to make this process secure and legally binding. “FPSign is the German solution for this problem,” says Sven Meise. “Our cloud-based solution processes data solely through German and certified data centres.” With only a few clicks, contracts can be signed and shared. The recipient does not even need an own licence. FP-Sign as a portal solution and software as a service can be used without high acquisition costs.
Francotyp-Postalia is Germany’s market leader in the franking business with more than 200,000 customers worldwide who entrust them with their business communication. With more than 90 years of experience the company quite early adapted to digitalisation and now offers individual and custom-made solutions for clients allowing them to optimise their processes – efficiently and cost-effectively. “Agility and excellency are our goal with every service and products,” concludes Sven Meise. www.fp-sign.com
