Freeing up hidden costs…

Have you ever thought about unnecessary costs wasted on printing, posting and physically chasing applications within your business?

On average, you spend approximately £3.70 on each individual case you handle…

This seems acceptable, but when you’re converting at 30% and you’ve sent out 50 packs, are 15 completed cases good enough or sustainable?

Let’s break it down. Taking in consideration the cost of:

Wages: £42 per day
(Minimum wage)

Printing/Paper: £0.15 (per sheet)

Envelope: £0.10

Postage: £1.29
(average) per case

Pack chasing: …time


£42 (wages) ÷ 50 (number of cases) = £0.84

10 (Sheets) x £0.15 = £1.50

Envelope £0.10

Postage £1.29 Average Per Case


= £3.73


On the basis of 50 cases each having the value of £200 with a 30% conversion, you’ll see a profit of £2,825 per day, after deducting your overall cost (from the above sum).

By using Collect a Case, you can free up hidden costs.

Yes, that’s right! You can now release valuable time and money within your key sales force from chasing applications from posted packs that stood minimal chance of being returned.

Our service mean that you will no longer need to award holiday pay or cover salaries when staff aren’t sitting or chasing individual cases.

…but when you’re converting at 30% and you’ve sent out 50 packs, are 15 completed cases good enough or sustainable?

With Collect a Case, you pay £49 per case.

Converting at 90%, you’ll receive 45 cases back.

That’s a revenue of £9,000 – an extra £3,725 after you’ve paid the appointment fee.
