New Pitney Bowes Emtex(R) Software's P/I Wizard Increases Workflow Productivity
BOCA RATON, Fla., October 22, 2008 - Pitney Bowes Emtex Software, a division of Pitney Bowes Inc. (NYSE: PBI) and a leading provider of Production Intelligence® Workflow Solutions for print and mail operations, announces the release of P/I Wizard software at GraphExpo 2008 in Chicago, Illinois. The P/I Wizard software has a document-driven and browser-based interface that is designed to simplify job preparation for a variety of complex applications including digital color and Transpromo. The comprehensive P/I Wizard delivers a suite of capabilities that simplify print job preparation and increase workflow productivity without scripting.
“With the P/I Wizard, organizations now have the tools at their fingertips, to enable them to greatly improve operational productivity and efficiency with one workflow for many processes” said Tim Moylan, President, Pitney Bowes Emtex Software. “Because the P/I Wizard does not modify underlying processes or the host application, it provides versatile functionality with a single interface. The P/I Wizard simplifies the migration to digital color, improves processing integrity, and transforms legacy statements and invoices into powerful Transpromo documents.”
The new P/I Wizard integrates with the Emtex Production Intelligence suite of solutions for seamless control. The P/I Wizard helps to ensure applications are properly aligned for data capture and process control. The scalable Production Intelligence architecture gathers data about every important aspect of print and mail operations in real-time and makes it available as actionable information.
As operations replace pre-printed offset shells and migrate black-and-white applications to plain-paper color printing, the P/I Wizard document development capabilities can streamline and accelerate color migration. Significant savings may result by eliminating expenses for offset printing, version updates, storage, and inventory waste.
The P/I Wizard can be used as an alternative or in addition to ongoing professional services for developing new applications. Its automated processes eliminate time-consuming manual scripting. Users can more easily build Transpromo applications by leveraging planned or remnant white space to dynamically include relevant images, text, and insert pages in print-ready transaction applications.
In addition, the P/I Wizard lets print-to-mail operations apply barcodes, create piece-level tracking files, and index print files to aid processing integrity and help to maintain regulatory compliance. Barcode generation within existing applications enables closed-loop tracking and reconciliation. Intelligent Mail® barcode generation lets users take advantage of the potential cost benefits and services.
At GraphExpo, a comprehensive end-to-end demonstration of the Production Intelligence® Workflow suite of solutions including the P/I Wizard will be conducted in the Pitney Bowes Booth 2263.
