The Benefits of Franking

In recent years the Royal Mail has dramatically increased the discounts on franked mail. This is because, for the Royal Mail, handling franked items is a lot cheaper than issuing stamps and processing stamped mail.

In order to encourage more businesses to use franking machines, the Royal Mail offers big discounts on postal charges for customers who frank their post...so everyone's a winner! In some cases franking discounts have doubled in the last two years and this means even for a company that sends out quite small volumes of mail, buying or renting a small franking machine such as the IMS 160 can help to reduce mailroom costs.

A Professional Image

Sending franked mail presents a professional image to your business partners and customers. Your franked stamp can be customized for your business and can contain your company logo and promotional text or other business messages.

They say there is no such thing as a free lunch, but franking your mail gives you the opportunity to advertise your company...for free. You can advertise new services, promotions and new offers. Using a franking machine that offers text messaging, you can even change the message on a daily basis.

Time Saving and Convenience

Murphy's Law - Stamps will run out at the most inconvenient time, this is just the way it is. Trips to the post office for more stamps are not only time consuming but also inconvenient.

Franking machines can be topped up on-line 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and it only takes a minute. Even when the post office is shut you will never run out of postage. Also processing out-going mail becomes less of an odious task. Mail items can be easily weighed and correct postage applied. Batches of letters can be quickly passed through the franking machine and on their way.

Accounting and Accountability

At tax return time franking machines are very useful. They report on your postage costs so you can claim your full expenses on your tax return.

For companies wishing to keep track of postage across departments, all our Pitney Bowes franking machines allow for multiple department accounts to be set up and reported on. This can help keep control of costs.
