Hasler Postage Meters Review 2018

About Hasler

Hasler's history stretches back nearly one hundred years.

They are one of only five businesses authorized to supply postage meters by the United States Postal Service (USPS), so they have a longstanding legacy for quality products.

Hasler provide postage meters for business of all sizes. From small businesses sending only a handful of items a day to large companies with busy mailrooms sending as much as 15,000 items per hour.

Although it was acquired in 2002 by Neopost, Hasler’s dealer network, which provides sales, supplies and services to companies across the United States is distinct from Neopost. Hasler’s suite of applications are also developed in-house, which further differentiates them from their parent company.

Hasler Apps

In recent years, Hasler has replaced its Bulk Mailer Business, DCS Mailroom Plus and Global Lite software with a series of apps designed to help small businesses get even more out of their Hasler postage meters, and to streamline mail operations for small businesses and high-volume mailrooms alike. These include:

  • Online Advantage: Simplifies ordering of supplies and postage, allowing budgeting month-by-month or year-over-year.
  • Commercial Rates App: Lets businesses take advantage of commercial rate postage discounts up to 5% off retail.
  • Remote Diagnostics App: Hasler's US-based service center can diagnose problems remotely to maximize uptime.
  • TotalFunds® App: Add postage on a rolling basis, invoiced and paid at the end of the month.
  • Online Postal Expense Manager™ App: Expanded reporting shows spending by department, postal class, and date, allowing you to optimize postal spend. Data can be viewed in graphic or spreadsheet form.
  • Hasler Postal Accountant App: Track and analyze processing activity for better allocation of resources, either for a single location or multiple sites.
  • E-Services App: Simplify tracking and delivery confirmation for outgoing mail while saving money. Alerts can be delivered to the mail sender or recipient alike.
  • E-Services with Electronic Return Receipt™ App: Eliminate paper forms in favor of electronic processing of certified and return receipt mail.
  • Postal Rates App: Automate rate change updates, service fees, and changes to postage zones to ensure rate and compliance accuracy.

Pricing

Federal law stipulates that postage meters can only be leased, not bought.

This is a security measure because postage is treated the same as currency in the eyes of the law.

When weighing up the costs of a postage meter, you should take into account not only the cost of the meter, but also of inks and supplies, postage, and accessories.

These costs should also be weighed against your business's current postage spend and the personnel hours spent on mail processing in order to accurately gauge savings. Typical costs begin at about $25.00 per month for a low-volume machine and escalate from there.

Summary

Why the Hasler IM280?

Staff simply insert their mail and the IM280 starts printing in a matter of seconds. Typically used in a home office or small business environment, the IM280 requires minimal setup due to its highly intuitive and easy-to-use user interface.

Features

The IM280 is fitted with a standard 2lb integrated scale, with the option to increase this to 5lbs. This allows the scale to be used with all types of postage from postcards to small packages, and once an item is placed on the scale, the Rate Wizard will simply take you through the steps to choose the correct rate. Additionally, if you have a number of commonly used postal rates, you can set these up as shortcuts to save even more time.

As it is always connected to the Internet, any postage rate changes will be downloaded directly, and it will even send emails to staff when the ink cartridge is nearing its replacement time.

As well as basic postage the IM280 has a number of other features including; printing of personalized business slogans, an online postage expense manager app, a commercial rates app, a total funds app and a remote diagnostics app.

Our Verdict

The IM280 is neither as fast nor as full-featured as other meters in the Hasler lineup. With that said, it’s not meant to be since the businesses served by this machine typically have a mail volume that’s high enough for a postage meter to make sense but not so high that they’d miss some of the features offered by the company’s faster and higher-specced machines.

Summary

Why the IM330?

Despite being small, the Hasler IM330 comes with an array of features and is easy to use, even for those with little experience of mailing systems.The quiet operation of the IM330 means it won’t disrupt everyday business in a busy small office

Features

If you have a batch of items ready, the Hasler IM330 can process up to 35 letters per minute, and even supports departmental accounting (up to 10 accounts). Personalized messages on your mail allows you to create ads, logos or even print QR codes, while an optional moistener ensures a perfect seal every time.

The system’s integrated 2lb or 5lb weighing platform, conveniently placed on top of the unit, allows you to simply weigh a specific item so the IM330 can quickly calculate the amount of postage required. The online portal also allows you to track, confirm and save with Hasler’s E-Delivery, E-Signature and E-Certified with Electronic Return Receipt, while tracking mail data and postage spend via MyAccount.

Our Verdict

The IM330 is neither as quick nor quite as full-featured as some of its larger and faster counterparts from Hasler. But its compact design, intuitive user interface, and the ability to get up and running with a quick skim of the user's manual a great choice for small teams.

Summary

Why the IN600 HF?

With postage savings, custom indicia, and robust department management and cost control features, the Hasler IN600 HF is more than a postage machine. It's a full-fledged business solution that can be expanded via hardware and software options to improve overall business performance.

Once the system is programmed, the Hasler IN600 HF can process up to 75 letters per minute. That's an amazing 1 letter every 0.8 seconds! The designers ensured that they included a weighing platform on the Hasler IN600 HF specifically for the business that sends out a lot of parcels. Platforms capable of weighing up to 70lb (31.8kg) can be added for the heavier parcels you have to send.

Our Verdict

While it's slightly slower than the IN600 AF, the Hasler IN600 HF is still a highly capable solution for two classes of business: those handling a low volume of mail but experiencing high seasonal demand, or those with a steady but moderate mail volume.

Why the IN700?>

The comfortable and easy to use IN700 is a state of the art next generation mailing system from Hasler’s 700 series. And with the IN700 capable of batch processing speeds of 140 letters per minute and dynamic weighing speeds of 75 letters per minute, you can be sure that the IN700 will cope with the demands of your business.

Manual processing and handling is reduced with the Hasler IN700 by the mixed mail feeder. And weighing platforms of up to 70lbs allow awkward or over-sized parcels to be processed with ease. The IN700 also carries Hasler's Eco labe, meaning that raw materials and components used in production have been reduced from the previous generation by 44%.

Our Verdict

Durable, efficient and easy to use, the Hasler IN700 will meet all your demands and then surpass them. The Hasler IN700 is an excellent solution for businesses needing the speed and functionality to handle a high volume of mail, but that do not require the extreme volume and blazing speed of higher-end Hasler machines like the IM5000 and IM6000.

Why the Hasler IM5000?

Features

Weighing over 200 pounds, the Hasler IM5000 is durable and sturdy, which in turn allows for its adjustable processing speeds of up to 300 letters per minute. For its considerable size, however, it's remarkably agile. That's because Hasler has maximized the IM5000's ergonomics for operators.

The sorting and preparation area is directly adjacent to the controls. Producing labels for mail can be achieved via the optional Remote Label Dispenser which prints no-peel, ready-to-stick tapes from a roll. A dual pump, jet spray sealing system with 5 adjustment levels allows tip-to-tip envelope sealing. Custom envelope text messaging and department setup/usage is offered via an optional full keyboard.

Our Verdict

Businesses of all sizes that process a high volume of mixed mail can benefit from the powerful Hasler IM5000. It was designed with extensive customer input, making it a uniquely responsive mailing solution.

Hasler IM6000

Why the Hasler WJ PRO?

Features

On paper, the WJ PRO is slower than the IM6000. The former processes 15,000 pieces of mixed mail per hour, while the latter processes up to 18,000.

However, the WJ PRO is designed with a shorter mail path, ensuring rapid and jam-free transit of mixed media. It's also designed so that it processes at a consistent speed.

Our Verdict

Higher uptime, dynamic media thickness adjustment, a capacious ink reservoir that can be refilled without interrupting print jobs, and vastly improved uptime mean that the WJ PRO delivers performance out of proportion to its much smaller size.
