A high-volume franking machine, letter openers and folders plus mailroom monitoring equipment can make a substantial difference in staff workload, efficiency and cost effectiveness in any enterprise and particularly in large mailrooms where thousands of items must be processed and managed expertly.
Several businesses invest in high volume franking machines but don’t take full advantage of other mailroom supplies and devices which could benefit them, this is like boiling a kettle and not having a hot drink.
Did you know that for maximum efficiency you should give the labour-intensive tasks like letter opening and inserting mail in to envelopes to a machine which can process many items per hour so that staff can concentrate on other core business tasks.
For example, a mailing campaign of 5000 items is to be sent over one week. Your staff will be solely dedicated to this task to meet the schedule and other tasks will be neglected.
By contacting mailroom supplies experts like IMS Franking in Aldermaston you can hire or purchase a letter inserter that handles up to 4000 items per hour. This can revolutionise how your mailroom works.
- The Relay 5000: This letter inserter is for high volume post room users. It has an hourly capacity of 4000 items per hour.
- The IMS125 and IMS127: These are intelligent technology tools for milling and opening mail. The contents won’t be damaged, staff can attend to other tasks, the IMS125 and IMS127 open 35000 letters every hour, not even the most efficient member of your team could match that.
If your high-volume franking machine is not smart technology enabled, then please consider a new one that is capable of deliver more benefits including enhanced reporting tools and visibility of your mail as it is processed through the Royal Mail network.
Use of these machines also means that companies can take advantage of the Mailmark pricing from Royal Mail, this is the best pricing tariff available so you will be paying less than if you were using a standard franking machine and considerably less than stamp fees.
Royal Mail has invested over £70 million in development working in response to client feedback. The smart high volume franking machine options from accredited mailroom supplies companies can even calculate the amount of VAT that you are permitted to reclaim, this VAT perk makes smart franking machines more attractive to business users.
You may be familiar with the crown and die of standard franking machines, this has been replaced by a 2D barcode which is read as it travels through post centres.
