Home office, reduction of social contacts, digitalization of processes: FP offers solutions for a changing world of work  

With smart products and services, the office and business operations of small and medium-sized companies and self-employed persons can be garanteed with contactless working,  especially in times of Corona


Berlin, March 23, 2020 - The Berlin experts for secure mail business and secure digital communication processes have already been confronted with several crisis situations in their almost 100-year company history. They therefore bring with them many years of experience from changing working environments in both the analogue and digital sectors. Today, numerous solutions for contactless process chains ensure smooth processes and offer significant simplifications in the process chains:

Using legally binding digital signatures

FP Sign offers a fast and legally compliant solution for digital signatures. Not only for contracts or quotations, but also for release processes, approvals in internal workflows and other documents of any kind - especially when employees are in the home office. Business processes in which signatures have to be provided in simple or even complex workflows become faster and easier. For industries such as healthcare, utilities and associations, FP is offering free use of the simple browser solution in these times until the end of 2020. More at: fp-sign.com.

Collect and consolidate business mail without contact

FP has its own collection service for letter post, currently also contactless, as well as a franking service and same-day handover to Deutsche Post AG. This ensures that all letters reach their recipients quickly and securely, and customers benefit from favourable discounts.

If an emergency should arise, FP customers can also take advantage of so-called "emergency franking" or use the P.O. box service, which is also offered: FP delivers all incoming mail from the customer mailbox directly to the office. Business mail can also be stored without any problems.

To slow down the spread of the virus and still maintain communication via letter mail, FP can also scan incoming mail from the customer's mailbox and make it available to customers digitally. More at freesort.de. (FP contact: Lars Tisken, Phone: +49 (0)2173 3347 703)

Digitize letter mail, outsource print jobs

Business communication and letter post can be digitized easily, quickly and securely. FP handles both input processing and complete output processing.

This includes the automated processing of daily data volumes via RPA (Robotic Process Automation) to maintain the processing of orders, incoming invoices and other standardised documents. FP also handles e-mail and messaging processing with subsequent preparation for further processing in ERP systems.

If paper is required, TransACTMail can be used to outsource printing: it can be used immediately from the home office without any fees/subscription. And it is cheaper than the normal postage including printing and processing. TransACTMail is also ideally suited for collective mailings from various decentralized departments. FP digitises paper mail directly from the mailbox and forwards it to the right recipients. More at: internet-access.de (FP contact: Michael Steinberg, Phone: +49 (0)30 364 440-0)

Use services for your own mailroom and Internet telephony

FP franking systems do the job in the mailroom almost all by themselves and postage is loaded via the Internet. As a matter of principle, people are not involved in this process.

The latest flagship of FP's franking system fleet, "PostBase Vision", is controlled and evaluated via the cloud solution "discoverFP.com". No matter where you are. Invoices and account details can be viewed or postage rates checked via an easy-to-use web dashboard. There you can also check the fill levels and reorder franking ink. This one-stop platform combines the various products and services for customers in one online portal. Consumables for all FP franking systems can be reordered online via the shop https://shop.francotyp.de.

With "WebBrief24", companies can send their business mail conveniently and at a lower cost without the need for printers, stamps or letterboxes. Letter delivery is handled by DPAG.

The FP telephone system makes it possible to replace old ISDN telephone technology and save costs. The cloud-based telephone system offers all the functions of a modern high-end system and can be flexibly adapted to any business environment.

Using the numerous call management functions, all extensions can be organised and efficiently connected to each other. Of course, this also applies to work in the home office. More about this under: francotyp.de. (FP contact: Stefan Huth, phone: 0800 3 72 62 68)

Secure digital communication in the Internet of Things (IoT/IIoT)

In the Industrial Internet of Things, machines already communicate with machines anyway, such infrastructures are immune to the corona virus. However, people still personally control and maintain many systems on site - and this should work better in the future in a decentralized manner.

FP Secure Gateways can be installed in almost any plant that does not need to be monitored personally on site, but via a cloud. Flexible and secure remote control from a single source is also available for beginners to the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) with the FP InovoLabs Starter Kit.

With FP Gateway technology and cryptography, decentralised control and monitoring of even older machines is possible in a cloud-ready manner. This is used by infrastructure providers such as energy suppliers, power plant operators and public utilities, as well as companies in the real estate, food and factory automation sectors. FP finds a virus-free solution for every project. More at: fp-secureiot.com (FP contact: Dipl.-Ing. Stefan Körte, Phone: +49 (0)30 220 660 771).
