Pitney Bowes Inc., a global shipping and mailing company that provides technology, logistics, and financial services, has launched its next-generation franking machine, SendPro Mailstation, in the UK. Already a best seller in the US due to its ease-of-use and compact size, SendPro Mailstation is perfect for organisations looking to drive down costs and simplify their sending.
For UK businesses, SendPro Mailstation generates savings of up to 25% on postage and, if choosing to have ink supplied by popular Pitney Bowes service AutoInk, up to 70% on ink. The integrated 4.3” full-colour touchscreen helps users print postage from the device directly onto their envelopes or labels.
Businesses enjoy the user experience and easy set-up, also valuing access to postage discounts. Monica Mistry from FirstFord Ltd said: “We found SendPro Mailstation quick and easy to install – we were connected and printing postage on our first letters within just a few minutes. The intuitive prompts on the touchscreen make it very straightforward to select the right postage. Now, our clients receive their communications in a timely, professional way and we’re saving time and money.”
Sian Evans from Excel Engineering stated: “There are so many different postal rates it can be complicated and expensive to send mail and parcels. SendPro Mailstation makes it simple. Because it connects using wifi we know the rates are always 100% accurate and we are up-to-date, and it saves us money, too. It makes life a little bit easier for us as a small business.”
Debbie Anderson from Roger Budge Electrical Engineers, said: “Printed mail is a critical communications channel for us: we regularly send out contracts, invoices, installation and maintenance reports and customer letters through the post, but the costs can really add up. SendPro Mailstation helps us keep these costs down by giving us access to savings. It’s intuitive and straightforward to use, and it makes us more efficient and productive, freeing up our time to focus on growing the business.”
Ryan Higginson, Vice President and UK/ROI Country Leader, Pitney Bowes said: “SendPro Mailstation is a game-changer for UK businesses looking to save money but not compromise on feature-rich office sending technology.
