What is Caging?
– Your mail needs to be picked up from a PO box. Each
piece of mail must be handled according to its needs: deposits
prepared and taken to the bank, correspondence answered,
credit cards processed. In a nutshell, that’s what
caging is. “Lockbox” often refers to the same
– At Trylon, caging is integrated completely with
data entry. In fact it is the only service at Trylon that
can’t be ordered standalone; you must be a data entry
customer to be a caging customer. This level of integration
allows us to provide exceptional service as well as exceptional
pricing. It makes sense because accurate acknowledgments
are dependent on accurate data entry, which in turn is dependent
on accurate caging.
– All sorts of advantages result when one company
does both caging and data entry. Reduced shipping costs
and fast turnaround are two obvious ones. But we think the
biggest advantage is that there are No Excuses! When you
need an answer, we’ll get it for you. No calling around,
no finger pointing - it’s what you need to do your
– Our commitment is to make the deposit immediately
and respond to the donor within a few days. Thanks to our
integrated approach that commitment is achieved.
– At Trylon, the audit controls are built in to ensure
accuracy and reliability. If you use Trylon’s database
you can even display each transaction over the web. In addition,
we will scan each piece of mail and/or check to provide
reliable backup and an accurate trace mechanism should questions
arise. You may be able to save significantly in storage

returns, rejected credit cards – we handle all kinds
of situations, probably some you’ve never thought
of before. Share the collective experience of many organizations
like yourselves so that you never need to “reinvent
– Of course you accept payments by credit and debit
cards. You probably already have a “payment processing
company” (PPC) that actually authorizes the charge.
We can probably work with that company to handle these transactions
at data entry time. If you don’t have a PPC we’d
be happy to recommend one.

are as committed to the success of your organization as
we are to the efficiency of ours!
