Before investing in a franking machine, you may be found asking yourself “would a franking machine benefit my business?“. And the answer is not as simple as yes or no as a franking machine may benefit some companies more than others or you simply may not be aware of the various benefits that are available when franking. Take a read of our blog below and see exactly how a franking machine will benefit your business.
Benefits Of Using A Franking Machine
Franking Machines Can Save You Money
Savings can be made on almost every piece of mail that you frank. To encourage more businesses to make the switch from stamps to franking, the Royal Mail offer bigger discounts when using a franking machine – with Mailmark prices being even lower. Check out our downloadable 2020 PDF to compare the latest rates.
Present A Professional Image
When franking mail, you can apply your brand logo on to every piece you send. This will increase the openability rate and it will portray a more professional business image to your customers. Frank a company logo, promotional text or other business messages.
Franked Mail Is More Accurate
A common mistake when using stamps is over or under paying for the item you wish to send. It is hard to judge how much to pay for your mail items. With a franking machine however, this is all but eliminated. You get the correct postage every time when franking as the machine bases the price on the weight and rather than under or overpaying, you pay the right amount.
A franking machine is totally secure too. The machine can be PIN code restricted to help prevent unauthorised personnel from using the machine and there are comprehensive reports available to help track expenses. As well as this, stamp books will not be lying around your office anymore!
Using a franking machine is more convenient and simple for all. Simple place an item on to the postal scale (which is usually built in!) and the franking machine will work out the weight, price and applicable discount. You can then frank your mail. Simple.
The entire franking process is much quicker and more efficient to complete in comparison to using stamps. This allows for more productivity within the office.
