Hasler IM5000 Postage Meter Designed for High Mail Volume

The IM5000 boasts itself as the new choice in high volume mailing systems, and following our review of the machine, we have to say our team was pretty impressed. The designers went out of their way to include several features that support ergonomic comfort for the operator – for example, a fully adjustable touchscreen that can be positioned for optimal workflow and orientation. The dedicated workspace directly located below the screen is also a nice touch. The high capacity feeder and power conveyor stacker are built to boost your productivity by reducing start and stops, but at over 200 lbs, be sure you have the space to accommodate this beast. The rental fee is what you might expect from a full postage meter and mailing system like this, but the increase in efficiency and cost savings in postage make it well worth the investment if you have the mail volume to keep this beast fed.
