Pitney Bowes DM400c Printer Review
If your business has a large volume of mail to send on a regular basis, a digital mailing system like the Pitney Bowes DM400c can provide a streamlined solution. The device can automatically feed, seal, and apply postage to envelopes of similar weight at up to 120 pieces per minute. It can handle different rates and keep itself current, and it will also save money with affordable supplies like the Pitney Bowes DM400c ink used by the inkjet system.
The control panel is truly the heart of the system, incorporating the IntelliLink technology to connect over a phone line. This allows the device to receive software updates and rate changes. It also allows users to easily reload postage credits 24 hours a day. Other useful features like date advancing are only a few button presses away.
For accounting purposes, the machine can handle up to 50 accounts initially, including expense tracking and providing detailed reports on command. It can also be expanded to support up to 300 accounts for offices with a lot of users. Ten of the most common tasks can be saved as presets in the machine, and easily accessed. This is a particularly appealing feature for inexperienced users, who won't have to dig through menus for the proper settings.
The inkjet system prints postage using the Pitney Bowes DM400c printer ink, and the barcodes can facilitate features like delivery and signature confirmation. The single Pitney Bowes DM400c ink cartridge comes at an affordable price and is easy to replace. The control panel reminds users when the printer ink is getting low.
For an office that needs automatic processing, but doesn't want to invest in a larger, more expensive device, the DM400c is a good compromise of features and functionality, at a price that is quite affordable. Supply costs are also low, thanks to inexpensive Pitney Bowes DM400c ink cartridges.
