This device is digital and works out the right stamp value for your mail by evaluating your mail’s weight. All its payments are carried out online between your post office and select bank enlisted by the companies which offer the service.
If your business sends out large numbers of mails regularly; then you could take advantage of a franking machine. When using a franking machine, your business benefits by:
Usually, when you are not sure about the amount you have to pay for your mail, you would require visiting the post office to get the details. A franking machine comes with a weighing scale which calculates the correct amount of stamp postage required with regard to the post office’s rates. This spares you the trip to the post office and time you would spend queuing to get help. Also, imagine how many seconds or minutes it takes you to apply the postage stamp for one mail, then multiply it by the number of letters you have to process. A franking machine does the job faster, saving even more time.
Without the help of post office tellers and the franking machine, many people usually apply an estimated cost for their stamp postage. In many cases, the estimate is often either an overcharge or other times an undercharge. When you overstamp your mail, you lose money unnecessarily, while when you understamp you risk being fined for the error. The accuracy experienced with a franking machine helps your business save money wasted on estimates.
The postal offices offer discounts for the use of franked mail because it is easier to handle. Conventional stamping entails a lot of manual work issuing stamps and checking mail which the franking machine eliminates. The discounts also help you to save a lot of money in the long run.
The franking machine records postage, making it easier for you to come up with reports of your postage. This information gives your business an opportunity to claim full expenses from the taxman and to formulate measures to control mailing costs.
Improved Business Image
Franked mail gives your business a professional image in the eyes of those you send your mail to. Its results are neat and the logo printed on envelopes or postcards helps to grow your brand in the minds of those who see your mail. The franking machine also gives you an opportunity to include a promotional text or tag line on your mail at no additional costs, which can be good for advertising new offers, services, products, etc.
