Did you know that your BlueCrest mailing system has a feature that can automate document information and minimise manual operator processes? The Document Database can be combined with MRDF (Mail Run Data File) header information to automate feeder set-up, including turning on relevant feeders, setting the required feed modes and inputting relevant details relating to insert dimensions.

Too often, this kind of system configuration remains a manual process. Like all manual processes, this can be a drain on time with the added risk of human error.

The Document Database is a very handy tool that allows you to store application information about envelopes, inserts and control documents. You can enter information on:

  • envelope / insert / document type
  • job description
  • paper weight
  • priorities
  • feed mode for the feeder distributing the insert
  • loading instructions
  • the number of enclosures to feed
  • and the scan code for enclosure-to-job match.


The user-friendly set-up can be seen here.

Once entered into the Document Database, this detail, in conjunction with the MRDF header, means you should never need to manually input this information again! The resulting Job ID will specify the document information to use within the relevant feeder.

Advantages of this automated set-up are obvious:

  • Reduced manual processing
  • Reduced risk
  • Optimized system throughput
  • Increased operational efficiency


What initially might seem like small productivity gains can accumulate over time to deliver substantial operational efficiencies.
