Pitney Bowes to Showcase Industry Leading Mailstream Technology at 27th Annual MAILCOM Conference & Exhibition
STAMFORD, Conn., May 07, 2007 - Pitney Bowes Inc. (NYSE: PBI), the mailstream technology firm, will demonstrate its mail and document management solutions at MAILCOM 2007, one of the largest conventions and exhibitions for mail communications management in Atlantic City, May 8-11, at booth #609.
Pitney Bowes will showcase the DM900™ Mailing System with WOW™ technology. WOW in-line weighing with Shape Based Rating not only weighs the mailpiece as it travels through the systems, but also determines the length, width and thickness to allow proper postage to be applied to the mailpiece. The DM400™ Series Automatic Digital Mailing System will also be on exhibit. Powered by IntelliLink® Technology, the DM400 system provides a digital gateway for convenient access to important business mail services. Pitney Bowes will also demonstrate its Business Manager information management system, which links multiple mailing systems and sites in a centrally controlled network to help monitor performance and costs in real-time across the entire enterprise.
In addition, Pitney Bowes will feature the DI950 Integrated Document Printing Solution with optional DM1000™ Mailing System Interface for high-end mailers. With integrated printing, the DI950 can help optimize the mailstream by creating, formatting, printing, inserting and metering in one solution.
Other products on display include Pitney Bowes’ recently enhanced AddressRight™ printers, the DA55S & DA75S. The AddressRight printers can address envelopes, postcards, booklets, folded newsletters, flats and catalogs. The printers offer 600 DPI shuttle head technology that prints in black-and-white or color almost anywhere on the envelope. By targeting the right market with the right media and adding personalized messaging, the AddressRight printers can help mailers make their mail pieces truly stand out from the crowd. Working in tandem with the AddressRight printers is Pitney Bowes’ SmartMailer™ data quality software. This powerful, easy-to-use solution cleanses and updates existing lists while helping make full use of critical customer data.
Distribution solutions on display will include Pitney Bowes’ SendSuite™ Shipping Solutions, which provide real-time information on rates from a selection of carriers, comprehensive accounting reports and the ability to charge shipping and mailing costs back to external or internal customers. The inbound tracking feature of SendSuite™ Arrival® software follows incoming packages and other accountable items from the moment they are scanned by the mail center to the time they are signed for by the intended recipient.
Experts from the Pitney Bowes Postage Discount Program will educate attendees about solutions on saving up to nine percent on their postage needs in the new postal rate environment. Pitney Bowes will also be highlighting e-Return Receipt for the USPS’ Certified Mail™ Service, which helps customers obtain the benefits of added postage savings and convenience through electronic tracking.
In addition, Pitney Bowes will feature its domestic presort solutions for higher volume First and Standard Class Mailers at the show. The solutions can help customers take advantage of a wide range of benefits from guaranteed per-piece pricing to tailored presort mail solutions.
Pitney Bowes production mail specialists will show a wide range of direct mail solutions to increase operational efficiencies and expand value-add solutions for service providers. New at the show is a Rate Case Calculator that allows visitors to evaluate present and future costs for mailing flat mail and compare costs if they “fold the flats” to letter mail. Pitney Bowes will also demonstrate the servo-powered FlowMaster® RS inserter system processing a high volume of letter material. The FlowMaster® RS can run letters up to 16,000 MP/HR and flats up to 9,000 MP/HR. In addition, Pitney Bowes will feature the Address Quality Hub, a new address cleansing software platform that improves mail deliverability and maximizes postal discounts.
Direct Mail solutions throughout the booth will showcase how to integrate multiple offline processes, personalize card-attached mail pieces in real time and increase operator productivity. To demonstrate these capabilities, the Pitney Bowes Flexible Bindery Interface will be integrated with the Sure-Feed AT2 Product Attaching System. The card-affixed collation will be fed in the enclosure feeders of the FlowMaster® RS inserting system. The EFS™ Envelope Finishing System with MCS print technologies will address each envelope and can print high definition text and graphics. Finished mail pieces will be run through the DM Infinity™ Series Digital Mailing Station, which prints postage and permits on sealed, single-weight envelopes up to 22,000 pieces per hour.
Pitney Bowes will demonstrate how their Output Management software solution enhances the Automated Document Factory with increased integrity and advanced process controls. With Output Management, each mail piece is logged and tracked, and SLA performance is enhanced with real-time job status monitoring, shift performance and key productivity metrics.
In addition, David Day of Pitney Bowes is a featured speaker at two Mailcom seminars: “The ABC’s of Building Your Automated Document Factory (ADF),” Tuesday, May 8, 12:15-1:15 p.m., and “Managing a High Volume Mail Production Environment in a Time of Uncertainty,” Wednesday, May 9, 1:45-2:45 p.m.
