While most new businesses embrace new technology, postage technology does not seem to be a technology many businesses want to invest in. The mechanical postage meter was first introduced more than 90 years ago by a man named Arnold Pitney. He along with Walter Bowes founded Pitney Bowes. Since then, businesses have been utilizing the time-honored postage stamp. The most successful businesses though, take it one step further and take advantage of postage software.
There are many benefits to this software with some of them being listed below:
Avoid Long Lines
Order fulfillment is a big money and time consuming chore for online retailers. Back in the good ol’ days, shipping merchandise to clients meant long trips to the Postal Office in order to purchase stamps for each package. This resulted in using more gas and putting more strain on the wallet. This time consuming process took away from other important activities like building your business website, staying current with financial obligations and making new merchandise deals.
Postage software lets you mail from anywhere as long as you have a computer and internet connection. It offers convenience and savings giving you online postage no matter where you are doing business. When choosing a postage solution, refrain from a program that only gives you one license for one computer. This will hinder you from being able to do business in more than one location.
Many postal programs support international USPS and national rates. This will allow you to choose from a variety of different online postage programs to find one that will fit your business needs when it comes time to ship out a package to your customers.
Postal software is a solution that is hassle-free when it comes to postal bulk mailing. It is perfect for small businesses, non-profit organizations, publishers, or any person who is looking to send bulk mail. They stay up-to-date on any postal changes, as well as postage rates, statement forms, and sorting changes.
