Switching to a franking machine could save your business money if you send more than five second class letters or parcels per day. The franking revolution has really taken off since the Royal Mail changed the complex rate structure that it uses for different sizes of letters and parcels. This is a very good way in which you can ensure you do not overspend on postage and therefore that you save money. The presentation of your outgoing mail is also improved.
There are huge discounts on offer to those people who use a franking machine rather than taking their mail to the post office. This postage discount can save companies hundreds if not thousands of pounds over the course of the year on their mail, depending of course on how much they post.
In order to be as efficient as possible it is likely that you will wait until the end of the day to take your mail to the post office. Factor in the journey there and back and the lengthy queues and it can be really time consuming. With a franking machine you have access 24/7 to postal services, including at weekends and bank holidays.
Those offices that only send a small amount of mail rely on petty cash and a book of stamps, these items are not as secure as a franking machine, which can be totally secure and require a passcode to use.
The postage prices in your franking machine can be altered to reflect changes in Royal Mail prices, meaning you will not be caught out paying the wrong postage.
