How Pitney Bowes Mailroom Equipment Benefits Users

Pitney Bowes has been a leading name in mailroom equipment for over 90 years so when hiring or purchasing their devices, whether it’s a franking machine, letter inserter or opener, customers enjoy a superior level of efficiency and value for money.

Each day the cost reductions and time savings mount up to deliver a noticeably positive effect on resources, task achievement and in the overheads column. This is as true with SME’s that send 5-10 items of mail per day as it is with multi-site corporations with substantial post loads.

Over £70 million has been invested by Royal Mail in the enhancement of smart technology operations. It’s fair to say that if Royal Mail could avoid the cost of stamp print runs they would. They keenly advocate investment in smart franking machines, offering incentives including VAT reclaim opportunities and via their Mailmark scheme, the lowest franked mail pricing tariff with the optimum reporting tools, 2D readable barcodes and online dashboard management.

Pitney Bowes, with leading franking machines suppliers like IMS Franking, appreciate that pressure on budgets and time means that smart franking machines and other mailroom equipment must represent the best solutions for business users.  The firms comprehend exactly what the customer needs from them.

Taking a lease agreement with franking machines suppliers is the more popular option with clients because it boasts the convenience of spreading the cost of the machine hire across the year rather than making a one-off purchase of normally £1000 or more.

If you lease a Pitney Bowes franking machine at £19.99 per month, this costs less than £240 per annum.  A Mailmark eligible machine permits the lowest pricing available and there is a substantial saving when compared to stamps. For example, a 1st class small letter stamp currently costs 65 pence, with Mailmark it’s just 55 pence.

High volume users could also be eligible for Business Mail, a licensed Royal Mail service which rewards the customer for accuracy. The easier that the mail is for them to process, so correct address and postcode and sorted, the greater the discount possible up to 20%.

Consumables like franking labels and ink and credit top-ups are managed via an online account, 24/7. Franking machines suppliers frequently stipulate that when a lease of a Pitney Bowes franking machine is chosen that all consumables must be purchased through them so that only the optimum standard products are used.  Think of it as a one-stop shop.
