Choosing The Correct Provider

For smaller businesses, the first concern is probably price. Since postage rates are so highly regulated, one would think the base level systems do not differ substantially from one provider to another.  Think again.  With the big guy,  there are huge hidden fees in the total cost of ownership in postage metering systems. Hidden fees include Value Maxx, Supplies cost as high as $14 cents per impression, Postage meter Strip Tape cost of up to $1.02 each.  Postage resetting fees of $10.99 to $25.00. Annual Purchase Power fee of $49.95. There is even a fee for downloading too much postage. Most companies have no clue how much the big guy is sticking it to them.  

It is important to work with our knowledgeable local experts that will help you understand the true total cost of ownership and choose a postage metering system with the correct features that are right for your business.  We commonly gain new customers that have saved up to 50% over the big guy.

We highly recommend performing a Google Search to compare vendors based on other satisfied customers.  Place the name of the Company in your Google search with the word "Review" and see what comes up.  By taking 5-7 minutes to do your due diligence it could save you hours of future headaches and vendor frustrations.

As your mailing volume and monthly expenditures increase, other factors come into play. Service will vary depending on the company you choose. Some manufacturers sell their systems directly, while others distribute through a nationwide network of local independent dealers. Both can provide service – but in either case,  you should perform a Google Search to see if their customer support is in alignment with what your business expectations and requirements. Commonly the branch and direct distribution model has poor service
