A franking machine is a very important piece of equipment for any business’s mailroom no matter what size you are. If you send outgoing mail on a regular basis then a franking machine can and will benefit you. But what does a franking machine actually do?
Franking machines allow users to frank mail, allowing for postage to be applied without the need of a postage stamp. This means no more queuing at the Post Office is needed. There are many benefits to using a franking machine such as a franking machine allowing you to save time, allowing you to save money and they can improve the efficiency of your mailroom. The Mailstart+ franking machine for example can even easily sit onto a desk for ease of access. Here are some of the key reasons for why you should invest in a franking machine.
It Is Cheaper Than Stamping!
One of the main benefits of using a franking machine is they offer discount prices for a franked impression. Franked mail is cheaper for the Royal Mail to process and as such the Royal Mail offer a discount on your franked items. Almost everything you frank can save you countless pennies. All of Mailcoms’ franking machines even come with the latest Mailmark technology which offers even further postage discounts. Find out more about Mailmark franking here.
It Is Much More Convenient!
One job that no one likes doing is queuing at the Post Office for your stamps. It is very time consuming and laborious. However, if you use a franking machine you will not need to go to the Post Office as your postage can be topped up within minutes, 24/7. Your mail can be prepared regardless of whether the Post Office is open and all your mail will be correctly weighed.
Another important reason to frank, and possibly a less obvious reason, is that your business can advertise via your franked impression. Franked impressions can be customised to include your business logo, slogan, or anything else you wish to put on it. More customers are going to be exposed to your company’s name, logo and brand. This will improve the professional image of your business and it will also let you advertise your business.
The three key reasons above are very important for why you should use a franking machine. However, there are multiple other reasons for why a small business should at least consider purchasing a franking machine. They will ensure common errors such as over or under paying for your postage are eliminated.
