The postage rates available in the market are cheaper than ever before and in turn have encouraged an improved interest in franking machine and related technology. Both document management and document imaging companies all across UK are expanding their offerings in order to capitalize in this growing sector.

Almost all businesses who require a mailroom have realized the importance and benefits that today's franking machines offer.

For a business dealing in larger volumes of mail every day these small savings on single items can result in a considerable savings and help save on a company's overall expenses.

Initially franking machines were a good option only for businesses dealing in larger mailing volumes. Almost a decade and a half ago the initial expense for a basic machine was generally in the 1000's and therefore significant savings were visible only where large volumes of mailroom operations were conducted. But in today’s age a company can save between £2 and £3 even if it deals in 50-60 items per day. In fact, Franking Machine Prices have gone down significantly and nowadays small footprint franking machines are available for just 200 or 300 pounds.
