The workshops, reports, communications and case studies provided by The SMP are invaluable to us in increasing our understanding of what is happening in the market place. It’s helped us as a company because we’ve been investing heavily in Direct Mail which we know is a brilliant platform for people to receive information.
“Being part of the Strategic Mailing Partnership means that we are in a unique and strong position to be able to shape the future of the mailing house industry. Regular communication with Royal Mail helps the industry feel understood, valued, and accepted into the supply chain. We frequently put forward the mailing house industry’s concerns and requirements. We are now truly valued as a key partner to Royal Mail and we aim to improve dialogue in operations, and have input into the development of future Royal Mail products and services. We work with Royal Mail to shape the future of the mailing industry. Our partnership with Royal Mail perfectly demonstrates our high standards in providing mailing services for our customers; the membership proves to be a very powerful tool when directly engaged with clients.”
“I find being ‘inside the tent’ with Royal Mail allows us to influence how changes in processes are implemented. Mailmark is a great example of how, by working with the Mailmark team, we were able to influence changes to reporting to ensure end clients had a smoother take on journey - without these consultations a lot more disruption would have ensued.”
“As a company we decided to join the SMP so that we could create a larger voice within the industry. As the influence of the SMP grew over the years, I asked to be elected to the Board as I could see this was now an organisation that really did have some influence. Since joining the Board I have felt that Royal Mail have a real willingness to understand and listen to mail producers’ views, issues and thoughts about the future. Through this we have seen changes in products, with for example the development of the specific product for Mail Order Catalogues over 100 grams, and have also seen the Standard Operating procedures for Royal Mail changed with regards to the hygiene of trays and other containers.”
