Pitney Bowes Postage Meters
With nine decades of active service, it’s no surprise that for many businesses, Pitney Bowes is the first name in postage meters. They offer meters and hardware for businesses of any size, from home offices to high-volume enterprise-level mailrooms.
Depending on your business’s volume of outgoing mail, you can opt for a low-volume, mid-volume, or high-volume machine from Pitney Bowes.
Many small businesses find the compact Mailstation 2 to be an ideal low-volume solution. With an 18 letter per minute (LPM) processing speed, it’s designed for businesses that mail about 100 letters per month.
The larger and faster DM575 processes a higher volume of mail per minute, but it also supports advanced features like color printing, which comes in handy if you’d like to personalize the mail sent to your clients.
Businesses handling a very high volume of mail should consider the DM Infinity, which has a 350 LPM speed. Of course, there are numerous other machines, at varying speeds and corresponding price points, making it possible to customize a workflow that’s as unique as your business.
Neopost Postage Meters
Neopost is a global company with a significant footprint in Canada. No matter the size and shape of your business — or its mail volume — there’s a Neopost solution that’s sure to fit.
Like its competitors, Neopost offers something for nearly every business. In addition to a respectable 20 LPM volume, the IJ-25 also stores up to eight marketing messages, giving you an even greater degree of flexibility and customization.
At the higher end of the spectrum sits the IJ-15K, with its ability to process fifteen thousand pieces of mail per hour this is a machine for those who need a solution that can handle serious volume.
Neopost stands apart in another way: their technology is often a cut above the competition. The ability to hot-swap ink cartridges — cleanly, no less — means less downtime and fewer interruptions, while the ability to use miniaturized postage marks means that you’ll change ink less often to begin with.
FP Canada Postage Meter Machines
Like Pitney Bowes, FP Canada (the FP stands for Francotyp Postalia) has decades’ worth of experience providing franking machines – an alternative name for postage meters. Its solutions don’t just scale to businesses; they also scale seamlessly to changes in demand.
What if meeting spikes in demand wasn’t a matter of leasing a faster machine, but installing a simple software patch? With the new FP Postbase series, you can do just that. The software update allows users to increase the processing speed by fifty percent.
A small machine, it has a big personality (it comes in six colors). It also boasts a big feature set, storing a maximum of 200 separate accounts — handy for businesses with multiple departments, or needing the ability to manage multiple individual users.
At the opposite end of the spectrum sits the FP CentorMail system, which has a muscular and bulky profile to match its versatility and blazing speed. For businesses whose processing needs tend to the extreme, it’s an ideal solution.
