Rely on your Neopost equipment to accurately calculate the new postage rates.
You can rely on your Neopost mailing equipment to automatically calculate the correct postage for postcards, letters and packages when rate tables are kept up-to-date. Accurate rating eliminates return of mail because of short-paid postage and resulting savings in employees' time and short-paid penalties. Automatic calculation of postage also eliminates wasted over-payment of postage needlessly applied because of guesswork.
