Postage meters are an integral part of the day-to-day operations of many companies. Though the rise of digital communication has reduced the dependence on postage meters for many, for others, they remain an essential tool. The shift to digital has caused the cost of postage itself to rise, and many companies feel that maintaining a postage meter is a way to help them mitigate these costs. While this may be true, there may be opportunities to increase the value of your postage meter. With deep experience in the industry and relationships with vendors nationwide, SIB cost reduction consultants can help you lower postage meter costs today.
SIB works with enterprise-level companies to identify opportunities to reduce costs across an array of services. Through a comprehensive shipping and postage audit, we can uncover a number of opportunities for your organization to save on your postage meter service.
When your postage meter is meeting your needs, you may not think twice about it. When was the last time you stopped to consider how much you are paying for ink cartridges, equipment insurance, annual price increases, machine rental and postage costs? These expenses add up. Perhaps most frustrating of all is that in some cases, you should not have to pay for them at all.
Charging for some of these items may be standard operating procedure for some postage meter suppliers, but that doesn’t mean you should feel like you are locked into a bad deal with no way out. SIB will analyze your contract to ensure compliance and check for overcharges. Our cost reduction specialists will then use our findings, as well as our deep experience with clients nationwide, to renegotiate a better rate for you with your current postage meter supplier, all without disrupting your service.

- Ensure you are not paying a premium for ink
