Treat Your SME, Economise

Treat Your SME, Economise

According to the National Federation of Self Employed & Small Businesses Limited, at the start of 2016 there were a record breaking 5.5 million private sector businesses in the UK and 99.9% were SME’s. 60% of employment is in SME’s. This business area is stronger than ever and is expected to maintain a positive trend.

There is another aspect to SME’s that is largely overlooked and this relates to SME expenditure. Many businesses do not realise the potential savings that they could make by using franking machines which boast smart technology and the Royal Mail Mailmark services and pricing tariff that have a hugely positive impact on business expenses and therefore prosperity.

It seems counterproductive that potentially millions of SME’s are costing themselves money. Don’t let that situation continue unaddressed.

Smart franking machines, the optimum pricing, VAT reclaim benefits, top level reporting and visibility aren’t solely for large corporations to enjoy. Even a small business that sends just 5 letters per day can enjoy a raft of business enhancing benefits. Don’t use stamps or an older model of franking machine, it’s like throwing profits out of the window, coin by coin, note by note.

Royal Mail accredited mailroom equipment suppliers like the long established and highly respected IMS Franking Machines in Aldermaston will be delighted to advise you about the most suitable smart franking machine and Mailmark services for your company.

One model of franking machine does not serve all clients but there is a business solution for every SME.

Franked mail is handled in business mail services and Mailmark post is the most efficiently processed thanks to the barcodes. If there is an issue with an item it will appear on the Mailmark PC dashboard which is operated by the client from their premises.

As SME’s thrive and show how business should be done, ensure you’re post arrangements echo your excellence and future prosperity.
