Pitney Bowes Expands Output Management Capabilities for Print and Mail Operations
STAMFORD, Conn., March 16, 2009 - Pitney Bowes Inc. (NYSE: PBI), a provider of Production Intelligence® Workflow Solutions for print and mail operations, has announced the expansion of VIP™, VDE™ and FlexServer® output management solutions.
VIP and VDE versions 8.8 now offer support for the PDF/A-1b format for document archiving systems, and optimized performance for color workflows. Building upon the inherent “any-to-any” printstream capability in maximizing print asset utilization, VIP and VDE solutions now provide advanced support for the Kodak® Versamark® V-Series Printing Systems IJPDS print device. With 600 by 600 dpi resolution support and the ability to concatenate resources, these solutions optimize print production performance and increase productivity. Concatenation is the effective combination or joining of two or more text strings. The joining of IJPDS resource and print files enables improved printer performance when sending multiple jobs with various print resources.
FlexServer 2009 is now available on the Microsoft Windows® platform. The solution has the same robust functionality and benefits as the traditional UNIX version, and is now compatible with additional Windows-based Production Intelligence solutions. FlexServer solutions integrate with the VIP transformation solution for “any-to-any” printing and with DFWorks® solutions for real-time production tracking and analytics that monitor and measure workflow resources, jobs and mail-piece status.
“Our robust output management solutions continue to be the foundation of our Production Intelligence workflow suite,” said Peter D’Amato, Vice President, Global Product Management and Marketing for Pitney Bowes Emtex. “In order to support digital and color print and mail workflows, we will continue to enhance our solutions across multi-vendor platforms. Each innovation supports our mission to help customers optimize their production efficiency.”
