What is S.M.A.R.T. franking software?


Franking software with SMART features for posting parcels

If you’re posting mail from your business, you’ll already know that a franking machine offers many advantages over stamps – saving time, money, and inconvenience being the most valuable. The advancements in franking technology in conjunction with Royal Mail with smart franking machines that track VAT, and MailMark franking have increased the ease with which you can deliver important post to your customers.

The next step in this is S.M.A.R.T. franking software. This all-in-one software solution is compatible with the latest range from Twofold Ltd – the TFm iX-3, TFm iX-5, and TFm iX-7, and ideal for anyone posting parcels from their business.

So, what is S.M.A.R.T. franking software?
To start with let’s explain what it means, Shipping Mailing Accounting Reporting Tracking (pretty handy, someone in marketing was happy with that). This means that your new TFm iX franking machine, with its software-enabled can streamline processes, and reduce the equipment footprint in your organisation. This is just the start of smart, as new releases automatically update with new features ensuring you always have the very latest and best at your fingertips.



S.M.A.R.T. Shipping

The innovative shipping software application allows you to process your parcels using Royal Mail as normal, but with less hassle. No more filling in Royal Mail Special Delivery books, fast processing, and user-friendly interface that can be used even if you’re not in the same location as the franking machine. Unlock your franking machine’s potential to meet your mailing needs.

Another feature our customers love is that all parcels get confirmation of delivery from Royal Mail at no extra charge, so you’ll know that they got there, and when.

Mailmark – make savings on franking

With Mailmark you’ll always be paying the lowest tariffs, saving almost 30% over the cost of stamps, and cheaper than standard franking. If you have an older franking machine it’s worth looking at a new machine now, as not only will you be saving money on every item you post, but Royal Mail is making Mailmark the standard from the end of 2022, meaning they will no longer accept post with the old ‘town and crown’ mark.
