Pitney Bowes Offers Constant Connection Service for DM Series(TM) Digital Mailing Systems
STAMFORD, Conn., August 13, 2007 - Pitney Bowes Inc. (NYSE: PBI - News), the world’s leading mailstream solutions company, announced today that it is offering its Constant Connection service for its DM Series™ 300, 400 and 450 Digital Mailing Systems. The service allows customers to link to Pitney Bowes’ server through their local area connection for 24/7 access to confirmation services, electronic return receipt transactions, software upgrades and USPS postage rate changes.
Constant Connection’s high-speed connectivity eliminates the need for an analog line, providing faster transmission speeds and a convenient, “plug and play” connection through a customer’s local network.
“In today’s constantly changing business environment, customers are looking for value-added services that not only help solve challenges, but also accelerate business,” said Jeff Marshall, Vice President of Customer Marketing for Pitney Bowes Global Mailstream Solutions. “Our Constant Connection service provides customers with greater mailstream efficiency and convenience in a secure environment to help improve operations.”
Pitney Bowes’ IntelliLink® technology serves as a digital gateway to provide a secure communication channel between the mailing system’s control center and Pitney Bowes’ server infrastructure. The IntelliLink control center utilizes public and private keys for authentication and to authorize postage refill information. No private personal account or other sensitive information is transmitted. The IntelliLink control center also provides a host-based firewall, which can be configured to “trust all,” “trust none” or “trust host only.”
In addition to the DM300™, DM400™ and DM450™ Systems, Pitney Bowes’ Constant Connection service is also available on its DM500™, DM550™, DM800™, DM900™ and DM1000™ Digital Mailing Systems.
