Public Sector Benefits

Royal Mail have rolled out a specific licence for Public Sector Organisations with a range of benefits


Ideal for many use cases

Public sector licensing permits both internal and external use for non-commercial purposes

This includes call centres, website address capture, internal CRMs, billing systems and more


Even simpler pricing

With very large monthly request allowances, the Public Sector Licence is the most cost effective way to access PAF

The relaxed terms provide greater cost certainty through fixed monthly or annual billing
