Note: This Franking Machine model has been discontinued but it is still possible to buy a used model - which can be just as reliable but much cheaper than a newer model.
The Pitney Bowes DM450c franking machine is used by businesses who send up to five hundred letters per day. It is part of the DM400 series which aims to create the efficiency of a large mailroom in an office.
The DM 450c will increase the speed at which a postal department operates as well as averaging savings of around thirty percent against using stamped mail. It includes other cost saving features such as its energy star compliant mode which send the machine into a sleep mode to save energy costs.
It also includes CleanMail technology access if your business generates over a thousand letters per month which can give even grater discounts against stamped mail.
The machine itself is capable of sealing, franking and stacking up to 120 letters a minute. The machine is capable of feeding mail up to a thickness of 8mm and can allow you to run many mailing accounts at the same time, ideal for a busy office environment.
It will also seal envelopes saving even more time. This franking machine model includes integrated scales to help prevent the business paying too much for postage. If your business regularly sends heavy items by post, you can opt for scales capable of weighing up to thirty five kilos.
In addition to processing outgoing mail, the DM450c can also date and time stamp incoming mail, to help you handle it efficiently. The model comes with twenty five accounts as standard to allow for accurate accounting, but there is the option to increase this to three hundred accounts if required.
To purchase a brand new standard DM450c+ machine will cost around £5,0000. Leases for this model will typically start from £200 a month upwards, on a five year lease without maintenance.
If maintenance is included in the lease, the cost will generally be an extra £100 a month. Other costs to factor in include the cost of ink cartridges and the prices charged for topping up credit. It is possible to purchase second hand franking machines for a lower cost, but these can often incur higher maintenance costs.
