Neopost IS-480 for Higher Mail Volumes

The simple “Load’n Go” on this postage system means that you can eliminate forever the chore of manually sorting your mail by weight, size, or thickness. Our review found this to be one of the biggest time saving factors with this machine, and at speeds of up to 150 lpm (letters per minute), you’re going to get an awful lot done in a lot less time. Oh, did I mention that was stamped, sealed, sorted, and ready to go at 150/min?

One of the other things you’ll notice, or rather won’t notice, is the sound – this thing is very quiet compared to some of the other machines tested out. The full color touchscreen with smart functions and intuitive menu prompts make this easy to use on the first go, and the short cut keys make it even more efficient for the frequent user. Selecting the ‘last rates used’, is a nice feature, and the built-in Rate Wizard acts as a nice fail-safe to fall back on.

Can you hear it?

This medium to higher volume postage meter is going to cost you somewhere between $100-$200 per month, depending on whether you choose the basic or a higher service level. As long as you have a high enough mail volume to justify having a machine like this, the investment is almost always surely worth it in terms of time savings and postage costs. The dynamic weighing platform option on this system adds an extra level of convenience to an already efficient system.
