Neopost Franking Machine Helps Small Business Save 39% on Postal Costs

ROMFORD, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - Aug. 18, 2010) - Tired of queuing to buy stamps, Bow Wow Meow wanted to save time and money. By switching from 1st class stamps to 2nd class franking, they saved 39% on their postage costs.

Originally established in Australia and with a UK operation created over 8 years ago, Bow Wow Meow Ltd provides a huge variety of engraved pet tags to over 2,500 vets and pet stores across the Asia Pacific, as well as servicing customers from over 75 different countries.

Bow Wow Meow were processing approximately 500 1st class items per month, including customer orders distributed via letter and packets containing POS material for channel partners. Marina Gower, UK MD, saw they were wasting time and money queuing at the Post Office to purchase stamps and paying higher costs than other business users. "I wanted to benefit from the cheaper postal prices Franking Machine users receive and reduce the time taken to purchase and then stick the stamps."

A convenient and easy way to cut costs

After discussing with a business colleague how to access cheaper postage costs, franking machine manufacturer Neopost was recommended. Bow Wow Meow undertook a 'no obligation 30 day free trial' to establish the benefits a franking machine could bring. "The franking machine trial was trouble free – easy to set up and get started," comments Marina.

Much more efficient and productive

The benefits of the franking machine are clear; "I no longer have to queue at the Post Office and work out what to pay. It's cheaper, quicker and easier. I am now sending mail 2nd class franked on the basis that it usually arrives the next day, so I am saving on postal costs each day as well as time."

Cheaper to frank than stamp

Franking machine users receive a discount on every item of mail sent. Savings are at least 5p on every 1st Class Letter, 7p on every 2nd Class Letter, 16p on every 1st Class Large Letter, and 11p on every 2nd Class Large Letter.

The benefits don't stop there

Franking machines also help to promote a professional company image, you can manage your postal budget and costs on-line, and including an external return address enables undeliverable items to be returned, cleansing your customer data for free.
