Small businesses face many challenges, that’s common knowledge. One area where businesses can make simple changes to make their lives easier, is shipping and mailing. Automating parcel sending and mailing processes can free up resources and let small businesses focus on achieving growth and improving the customer experience.
Recent research by Pitney Bowes shows the parcel shipping market
continues to grow steadily, with global parcel volume reaching 87 billion in
2018 and Australian volume reaching 864 million. Australians ship more than two
million parcels every day.*
Global parcel revenues continue to benefit from the explosive impact of
ecommerce. However, it isn’t just online shoppers boosting the industry, as
Pitney Bowes has seen that office sending in Australia is also on the rise.
With the rise of parcel sending and increased complexity and choice in
the market, Pitney Bowes continues to look for ways to simplify mailing and
shipping for customers. Our solutions let businesses take ownership of their
parcel sending, for example the SendPro™+ offers the flexibility to choose the
sending option that’s right for your business needs: whether that’s faster
delivery or better discounts.
There are five reasons why small businesses should consider an integrated
mailing and parcel sending solution:
Cost-efficiency: Many small businesses already use a postage meter,
as a cost-effective way to manage office mail runs. Beyond those savings, an
integrated mailing and parcel solution can help you save up to 40 per cent on
parcel sending cost – depending on volumes and types of packages.**
Flexibility: An integrated solution like Pitney Bowes SendPro+ lets you compare
pricing and delivery options, including overnight shipping, to choose the
carrier option that best suits your needs.
Saving time: Having a complete solution at your offices with shipping, mailing and
tracking capabilities eliminates trips to the post office and increases
Improved customer experience: An integrated solution can offer a fast
pick-up and delivery. This means customers receive their parcels quicker
improving their overall experience with your business. Furthermore, real-time
tracking of shipments means customers are better informed about the arrival of
Fewer errors: Historically businesses needed to gather receipts, pre-printed carrier
forms, post-it scribbles with addresses, and more. An all-in-one solution
facilitates this cumbersome, but critical process, helping the business stay on
top of expenses and budgets.
