Digital Postage Meters

If keeping costs down is important to you, you'd do well to get a digital postage meter to handle the mail you send out on behalf of your business.

If you own a business, time is money.

One of the biggest wastes of time is having to take your business mail over to the post office, wait in line and buy postage. Having a digital postage meter in the office eliminates the hassle of making trips to the post office and offers some other nice benefits as well.

Benefits of Digital Postage Meters

Research suggests that small businesses can save up to 20% on postage costs by eliminating incorrect postage estimates.

Without a digital postage meter, you may end up just guessing on how much postage a package requires. There's a tendency to overstamp business mail to avoid returned mail. But businesses that overstamp their mail waste company money needlessly.

A good digital postal meter will have a built-in scale that calculates the exact postage amount that is required for any given mailing. This ensures that the business pays the required amount to mail a letter or package and not a cent more.

Other benefits of owning a digital postage meter include not having to make trips to the post office and being able to efficiently put postage on office mail, including letters, flats, parcels and postcards. Moreover, you can use your digital postage meter 24/7, even when the post office is closed.

The bottomline? Businesses and nonprofit organizations can save time and money by obtaining a small business digital postage meter. If you don't have one, you should consider getting one as soon as possible.

Make small business mailing solutions a priority for your company, and you'll soon find that you and your employees can spend more time focusing on growing the business, rather that spinning your wheels trying to get the mail out the door.
