In today's fast-paced business environment, efficiency and cost-saving measures are paramount for small businesses to thrive.

Save on Postage Costs

Small businesses often find themselves spending a significant amount on postage costs. Traditional methods such as stamps can be more expensive, especially when sending a large volume of mail. With a Pitney Bowes franking machine, businesses access Mailmark® franking tariffs that are significantly lower than the cost of stamps. Which mean you save 19p versus Royal Mail® 1ˢᵗ class stamps and save 6p versus Royal Mail 2ⁿᵈ class stamps*. This advantage alone can lead to substantial savings over time, making the franking machine an essential tool for businesses looking to optimise their postage expenses.

Convenience and Time-saving

Managing outgoing mail can be a time-consuming task, from choosing the right service, purchasing stamps to manually affixing them on each envelope. Pitney Bowes franking machines automate this process by eliminating the need for guesswork and stamps altogether. Within just a few steps, businesses can easily choose the right service and print the exact postage required directly onto envelopes, parcels, or self-adhesive labels. This convenience saves time and frees up valuable resources that can be allocated to core business activities.

This level of professionalism can enhance brand recognition and credibility, making a positive impression on recipients.
