Postage costs are a major expense for all businesses. If you want to reduce your outbound mail postage costs, there are several things you can do. The most obvious is to take advantage of postal discounts and savings by using a postage meter. A software shipping solution might be the best route if your business ships packages frequently. Even for low-volume mailing, postage meters and mailing software could save you money and, more importantly, time. Automating your mailing processes will free you up to handle the more important parts of your business.
