There’s no getting around it. Before you choose a franking machine for your business, you need to do your research. You’ll need to know approximately how many mail items your business produces in an average day (known as volume). Is this consistent all year or are there busier periods to consider? Should you purchase or lease? Do you send both letters and parcels? Do you need multiple user accounts for different departments?
Although there are only four Royal Mail approved manufacturers of franking machines – Pitney Bowes, Neopost, Frama or Francotyp Postalia (FP) – between them they offer a wide range of options with diverse levels of functionality and a range of prices.
