Founded in the UK in 1924 as Neopost Limited, and with a core business in the production and supply of franking machines, postage meters and folding/inserting solutions, Neopost have earned their number one ranking in Europe (number two globally) as suppliers of logistics systems and mail-room accessories.
They annually dedicate 4-5% of their revenue to the research and development of new products, thereby ensuring that their office solutions remain at the cutting-edge of technology.
Their comprehensive range of folding/inserting systems provides solutions for any size of office, catering to low volume users with an output of 15-100 items per day, mid volume users with processing needs of 100-200 items daily and high volume businesses that will be processing in excess of 300 items on a daily basis.
Proving an invaluable resource to any organization which regularly sends bulk mail, a folding/inserting solution employs friction-free paper holders to guide an item through its mechanism using rollers, and folds the document to a predefined format.
This machine will enhance productivity and communication by simplifying everyday processes such as mailing statements and invoices, in addition to high volume campaigns which include marketing mailshots and circulars.
Businesses adopting a folder/inserter could enjoy savings of up to 247 USD per month over the average costs of manual processing (which works out to approximately 7 cents per item).
