Why use a Digital Franking Machine Instead of an Analogue Franking Machine?

You may have realised that a franking machine will save your business a lot of money, and so a few years ago you may have rented, leased or brought one. Considerable savings can be made when franking items instead of stamping items. However if you are using an analogue franking machine you may want to change to more advanced digital franking machine.

Why use a Digital Franking Machine Instead of an Analogue Franking Machine?

It is possible that your company purchased an analogue franking machine, but now that machine may be obsolete meaning you are missing out on further franking savings and franking benefits. High-speed internet connections and downloadable applications have revolutionised the industry and so you could benefit from switching from an analogue franking machine to a digital franking machine.

An analogue franking machine connects to your supplier via an old fashioned analogue phone line. This can be slow, costly and unreliable. On the other hand a digital franking machine connects to the internet via LAN or WiFi connection. As this connection is constant it is more reliable, much faster and not as costly.

In context, an analogue franking machine can process about 50 kilobytes per second whereas a digital franking machine can process about 100 megabytes per second. A digital franking machine is by far more superior.

A digital franking machine is more reliable when you need postage rate updates, system updates or if you need to download a personalised logo or slogan. The franking machine basically has less chance of disconnecting and this is more beneficial to the user.

As well as this, by upgrading to a digital franking machine users can enjoy the extra franking benefits of using Smart Meter and Mailmark technologies. These technologies can benefit bulk mailers as further postage discounts can be made. Smart Meter even allows you to report usage and reclaim paid VAT.
