PRLog - April 26, 2012 - With the London 2012 games fast approaching organisations are beginning to consider the impact of the Olympic and Paralympic Games on business operations. Many businesses will inevitably be impacted by the Games as the world comes to the UK and in particular to London. This will create a variety of risks, issues and opportunities, all of which need to be considered by businesses as they prepare their operations for ‘business as unusual’.
Hybrid mailing specialist’s imail have put forward a solution to minimise disruption for businesses when it comes to sending mail. There is a risk that extraordinary events (security, or shear traffic volume) may affect mail collections. imail’s technically advanced and eco-friendly system prints and distributes mail without the need for the customer to physically send themselves. Mail is printed at a print centre closest to the delivery address; mail coming out of London will not be affected by the Games.
Andy Barber, General Manager for imail said ‘Major events such as the Games could mean delays in sales as responses to marketing campaigns are slower than normal, or debtor days increase as invoices are not being received as quickly. imail is the quickest print and mail solution of its type at a low cost and is an ideal solution to keep business disruption levels down during this busy period.’
imail forms part of the UK Mail Group who have a sound business continuity plan in place for the Games. UK Mail has been working with TFL, Metropolitan Police, local authorities and DHL Supply Chain and have successfully run 2 Business Continuity Tests with further tests set to take place in the run up to the Games.
