The Connect Series

Cost saver

Correct value postage - every letter, every time The connect series can incorporate an optional 5kg integral weighing platform, freeing up desk space and guaranteeing that each letter or package bears the correct postage value. There are also options for 7kg, 12kg and 35kg interfaced weighing platforms. The optional differential weighing technology enables batches of mixed mail to be processed quickly and efficiently. The differential mail feature means that a collection of mail can be placed on the scale and the machine will calculate the correct postage for each mailpiece as it is removed from the pile.

Information management

It’s crucial for businesses to account for postage expenses.

Departmental or client postage spend can be easily tracked and reported with the 25 standard accounts on the

Connect Series; these can be upgraded to either 100 or 300 accounts if required. Reports can either be printed or there’s the option of exporting to a PC for further analysis.

Strengthen your brand with targeted and effective mailing Transform your mail piece into eye-catching communications. Advertise your business on every mail piece with sharp inkjet printing to build your professional image. An optional feature allows you to print a return address or message alongside your customised slogan to ensure undelivered mail is returned thus improving the accuracy of your mailing database and ultimately reducing expenditure on subsequent mail shots. These are easily entered via a built-in keyboard.
