Figuring Out Mail
When sending out bulk mail for your business, having a franking machine would make the process of mailing them out a lot easier. Postage is accurately calculated by the machine each time you send out mail. With a franking machine your postage can be paid online, 24/7 but with the use of stamps you need to wait hours in line to buy your stamps.
Today, franked mail is given increased discounts by the Royal Mail. The reasons for this is that franked mail is easier and cheaper to handle compared to processing regular mail manually and issuing stamps. The Royal Mail has recently increased discounts on franked mail to encourage people to buy and use a franking machine. The increased discounts is good for businesses since they can save in their mailing costs in the long run.
If your partners and customers will receive franked mail, then they will be impressed by the professional image that it brings. With a franking machine you can add your logo, a promotional text, or a tag line in your mail envelope. Franked mail is a good way of advertising your company for free. Promotional text can be used to publicize new tariffs, new services, or offers.
If you don’t know the weight of your mail, you sometimes end up overpaying and wasting money in the process. With a franking machine this over paying does not happen because the built in scale will determine the accurate weight of your mail and thus will be able to determine the right postage to pay. On the other hand, understamping your mail can also cause you inconveniences. The sender is usually charged for an undrstamped mail. Today, however, it is the recipient who has to pay for the balance and an additional handling fee if the mail is understamped. This inconvenience and embarrassment will not happen to you if you use a franking machine.
When stamps run out when we need them most, it can cause distress and aggravation. Franking machines will always allow you to mail your letters on time. These machine makes it very easy for outgoing mail to be processed.
When it comes to tax returns, this machine is very useful. Your franking machine can give you accurate reports on your postage costs so this gives you the opportunity to claim refund for full expense from the tax man. Your company can also benefit since the machine keeps records of postage costs across different company departments which can allow you to come up with measures to control cost.
Small or large businesses can use franking machines. Its benefits would include savings on postage costs, convenience and savings on time.
If you are a small business with a large mailing list, you can enjoy many benefits with the use of a franking machine.
