Companies that send a lot of post on a daily basis can save time and money by investing in a franking machine which is a machine that places stamps on envelopes or packages automatically and then calculate the total posting charge.
In order for a company to determine which franking machine is right for it, it needs to first of all determine how much post it sends on a daily basis. This will help it decide if it needs a low cost or a high cost machine. This will also help it to determine whether it needs a low volume or a high volume machine or whether it should purchase or rent one.

These include: versatility which is determined based on the sizes and shapes of envelopes and packages that can be franked, efficiency which is determined based on how many items the machine can feed, seal and frank in a minute, productivity which is determined based on the ease of use of the machine, security which is determined based on whether or not the machine is secured with PIN and password and aesthetics which is determined on how well the machine with fit in with the environment. These features are what determine the costs of franking machines . (more...)
