Why does your business need a postage meter?

There is no doubt that physical mail volumes are declining, but we are far from seeing the end of traditional mail.And as long as the post remains a relevant medium, your business needs to make sure it does so in the most professional and cost-effective manner possible.This is where postage meters come in.Contrary to popular belief, you don't have to run an industrial mailroom for the postage meter to make business sense.Postage meters can help businesses of all sizes increase productivity, efficiency and bottom line.

1. Postage meters save you money

Let's start with the most obvious advantage of a postage meter: it's cheaper. Mailings made with a postage stamp cost less than envelopes sent with a traditional postage stamp. Even if you only send 100 letters per week, that represents a savings of over € 400 throughout the year.

2. Postage meters save you time

Not only is postage with a postage meter much faster than pasting stamps manually, you no longer have to go to the post office. All your mailings are printed internally and centrally. Plus, postage meters can be recharged 24/7 so you don't have to depend on post office opening hours.

3. Postage meters are more professional

Every letter sent to your customers is an advertisement for your business. Whether you send an invoice, statement, reminder, or invitation, the envelope is the first thing your customers will see. Not only does mail franked with a postage meter have a more professional image, many postage meters give you the option of printing short promotional messages or your logo next to the postage mark using the PITNEY BOWES cartridges or NEOPOST.

4. Franking machines at the fairest price

As postage meters come with a built-in scale, you can be sure that the postage you pay is exactly what you need. Gone are the days of sticking several stamps of different amounts, which is usually more than what is needed!

Postage meters are more secure and postage stamps are one of the most stolen office items. On the other hand, postage meters can be equipped with a security PIN code, which means that they can only be used by authorized personnel.

These are just a few of the many benefits that postage meters can offer your business.
