The Neopost IS-480 is a superbly efficient digital franking machine capable of handling varied types of mail, printing on envelopes and labels of all sizes. One of the mid-range franking machines produced by Neopost, measuring just over 121cm x 32cm x 44cm (48 x 18 x 13 inches), it is ideally suited to mail rooms in the larger office or business and has the capacity to sort and process over 150 items a minute. The colour touch-screen with easy menu selection is simple to use and no training or specialist skills are required. Up to nine specific job types can be stored in the machine memory so your most frequently used mail shots can easily be accessed again when required. In addition, as many as 300 different accounts can be created on the machine, monitoring individual postage costs for any department within your business.
The IS-480 is connected to the internet. Online access allows the facility to add Royal Mail tracking, Signed-for and Special Delivery options to your packages. The continual online connection means that postage costs are updated automatically with no resetting of the device, thereby avoiding further billing for underpaid items. The machine also has the ability to access Mailmark, a new Royal Mail service which franks a 2d barcode on your mail. The barcode contains a lot more data ensuring faster processing by Royal Mail and therefore quicker delivery. There is also the facility to print a postage-paid reply envelope to send with your mail shots for ease of customer responses, and your company logo or details can be included ensuring an all round professional service to all your clients and consumers.
A franking machine of this calibre will cost somewhere between £4,000 and £8,000 to purchase outright. However, the manufacturers estimate that initial outlay is quickly offset if even 100 items are sent per day. A more immediately affordable alternative could be to lease or rent the machine. This option is available at a cost of between £60 and £120 per month.
