The big news this week is all about FP’s new line Mailing System, the PostBase. After reviewing all the materials, I’m convinced that this is the most flexible and up-scalable postal system that I have ever seen.
Created for the low to middle volume mailroom user, it offers features found on most high end and high speed equipment. In addition, many, if not all these features can be activated via software download.
Here is a list of some of the features that can be added and/or upgraded after distribution: speed, scale capacity, accounting, added feeder/sealer, custom advertising, differential weighing and even color. There are many more features, options and perks to the system.
The best features of the PostBase for most customers, in my opinion, will be the high-speed internet connectivity option and the remote rate change download capability. No more waiting on chips, cards or installation with new rates, they can be uploaded when you’re ready.
Over the years, I’ve heard some concerns that the layered menus are too complicated and difficult to learn; not so for this new machine. The PostBase has only one button, once activated the average customer only has to deal with 3 screens to accomplish 99% of their tasks.
