How to Choose the Type of Mail Sorter That's Best for Your Business?

Does your office lack infrastructure? If so, it could be costing you a significant amount of revenue each year.

Disorganization is a waste of time and money.

Think about all of the time you or your employees are wasting trying to find essential communications.

If you don't know exactly where those documents are, you need a mail sorter.

Get Organized with a Mail Sorter

Sorters offer adjustable height pockets and removable bins and are ideal for commercial, industrial, and office environments.

Simply combining different combinations of mail sorters and tables creates an effective and organized mail center.

And they're available in a huge variety of sizes to fit your needs.

The first thing you'll want to consider is the material:

1. Wood

Does your office have a specific style or decor that you don't want to disturb with an awkward shelving unit?

Then you'll probably want a wood mail sorter.

These are designed for locations that need furniture to match or blend in with the office architecture or existing furniture.

And they can be fastened to a wall, or placed more discreetly on a tabletop or desktop. So whether you need a single organizer, a stand-alone mail delivery station, or a complete mail center, you're covered.

2. Steel

If you're in an industrial setting, then you'll want the rugged reliability of a steel mail sorter.

But steel mail system sorters are also the best choice for those in the medical industry who need to store sensitive documents.

There are even HIPAA compliant steel security mail sorters with a lightweight rollaway aluminum that can be secured with two locks.

Steel sorters are perfect for protecting everything from cash and checks to sensitive medical documents. They're typically constructed with high-strength welded steel that offers unmatched protection.

3. Wire

Wire mail sorters are made out of heavy duty wire construction for years of use. Even so, this mail sorter is a lighter weight solution than the other two.

So if you're not as concerned about your mail sorter matching your decor, and there aren't security issues, this could be the best choice for you.

The nice thing about wire sorters is that it's easy to see what is in each compartment. Plus, you can simply clip on shelf ID labels to make things even easier to locate.

Once you've decided the best material, determine the following:

Open or Closed Back?

There are two advantages to the open back mail sorter. First, you have access to your mail and other documents from both sides. And second, you can use your space more efficiently.

The drawback with the open back is that it's easier for communications to slip through - leading to a potential loss.

Closed-back sorters eliminate this possibility. But you'll need a bigger space to accommodate it.

Vertical or Horizontal?

Typically speaking, you'll save more space going vertical. But once again, if space isn't as much of an issue, then you may prefer to the more subtle look of horizontal.

The bottom line is ensuring you have enough space to perform your tasks while maximizing surface area. There's really no rule that says you can't have both vertical and horizontal!

Organize for Better Efficiency

Don't waste any more time digging through piles of important communications. Streamline your operation with a mail sorter.
