Is a DM300M Franking Machine Right for Your Business?

The DM300M has been designed by Pitney Bowes for businesses with a high volume of outgoing mail; it will process 300 items a day at a rate of 65 letters per minute. You also have the option to upgrade the integrated scale up to 35kg if your business sends larger parcels. This functionality has the potential to transform a business’ mail system in terms of money saved through franking discounts. In addition, the semi-automatic envelope feeder and the capacity for differential weighing are huge time savers.
