Metering

What's the next step after addressing your company's mail with the most accurate address information? Putting on postage, of course, so you can get the mail on its way. Many small companies stamp their short letters and save longer correspondence and packages for a trip to the post office. Your company can save both time and money by investing in its own postage meter instead.

A postage meter (see Figure 4-3) offers savings for every office, not just larger ones with a heavy flow of outgoing mail. A postage meter ensures that your office does not overpay postage or underestimate it, which results in the embarrassing situation of mail arriving at clients' offices marked "postage due." It takes much less time to put metered postage on mail than it does to apply stamps, helping make more efficient use of staff time. In addition, your business correspondence moves more quickly once it leaves your office, since the post office does not have to spend time canceling and postmarking the mail.
