If you’re looking for a high-end machine that can process large volumes of post and, at the same time, give it a highly professional appearance, then the Pitney Bowes Connect+ 2000 Digital Franking Machine could be the right choice for your business.
The Connect+ 2000 is capable of processing a maximum of 7,000 envelopes per hour (if the power stacker option is selected) and can cope with an envelope thickness of up to 16 mm and dimensions of up to 254 x 256 mm. This is made possible because of its use of WOW (Weigh-on-the-Way) and DOW (Dimensions on the Way) technology, which comes as standard and, as the terms suggest, enables all envelopes to be weighed and sized by the machine to calculate the correct postage.
The machine can be supplied with a drop stacker or a power stacker, although opting for the power stacker will add another 483 mm to the length, making it close to 2.5 metres for the complete package. It can be fitted with 5, 7, 12 or 35 kg weighing options, although differential weighing is optional.
The colour printer is 1200 dpi. This means that the printing of any marketing messages, slogans and logos on your envelopes, which can go across the entire width, will be of a very high quality and will be noticed. Another benefit is that there’s no need for you to have pre-printed company envelopes. It can all be managed with the Connect+ 2000.
The standard 10.2″ screen can be upgraded to a 15″ screen if you require, and the touch-screen interface allows for easy navigation of the system, which includes 100 standard cost centres (can be upgraded to 500) and advanced reporting abilities.
Other options you might find useful are a barcode scanner and an external USB report printer.
All that technology and mail throughput capacity doesn’t come cheap. This is a high-end machine and the cost is commensurate with that. The price of a Connect+ 2000 is likely to be in the £12,000 plus range, and rental could cost you upwards of £400 per month. These costs do not include service and maintenance.
