With the price of First-Class letters increasing in 2019, you might already know that postage meters can help you save—almost 10 percent on each letter. But there are a number of other benefits you might not be as familiar with. See the full list below!
It’s like having a dedicated mailroom in your office. Metered mail ensures a hassle-free process, eliminating trips to the post office and wasted postage due to uncertainty over rates.
2. Out The Door Faster
Applying stamps to a huge stack of envelopes is a tedious process. With a postage meter, envelopes are stamped in seconds.
3. Online Postage Refills
Replenish your postage supply 24/7, avoiding time-consuming trips to the post office.
Save money using a Quadient postage meter and scale with up-to-date rates. With an integrated digital scale for precision weighing, a postage meter enables you to print the exact denomination — instead of using multiple stamps. You can also earn up to 39% savings over standard rates for Priority Mail® or Express Mail®.
5. Increased Security
Eliminating physical stamp inventories means you’ll never have to worry about lost or damaged stamps. Your postage dollars are safe-and-sound in your lockable meter, as opposed to a cluttered desk drawer.
6. Cost Accounting
A built-in cost accounting feature can accurately track postage expenditures for multiple accounts. This shows you where postage dollars are being spent, for easier budgeting and reconciliation.
7. Package Compatibility
Self-adhesive metered tapes are ideal for larger items such as packages, large flat envelopes, and tubes. This looks cleaner and more professional than wallpapering an item with stamps, in addition to enabling you to apply the exact postage needed.
8. Faster Delivery
Metered mail is expedited as high-priority business mail. It’s already dated, postmarked, and canceled when it arrives at the post office, so it requires fewer steps in the handling process. That means quicker results for your important correspondence...for the same dollar you’re spending now.
9. Enhancing Your Image
Metered mail makes a statement about your company. Small businesses can appear larger and more prominent. After all, your envelope may be the first impression you make on the customer.
10. Free Advertising
With its ability to print a logo, advertisement or even a product image, a postage meter can turn your envelope into a mini-billboard. This is important since envelope marketing has been proven to enhance open rates and readership while improving response rates.
