STAMFORD, Conn., April 05, 2010 - Pitney Bowes Inc. (NYSE:PBI) announced today it will unveil its newest mid-range mail and customer communications solutions at the 2010 National Postal Forum. The Forum runs from April 11-14 at the Gaylord Opryland Resort & Convention Center in Nashville, Tennessee. Pitney Bowes will exhibit at Booth #250.
Designed as the successor to the market-leading DM Series of mailing systems, the high-tech customer communications solutions that Pitney Bowes will reveal are packed with a wide array of capabilities previously unknown in the mid-range market segment, including ones that can help customers grow their businesses.
Specific details will be announced at the show on Monday, April 12, 2010.
The Forum is the largest gathering of mailing industry executives and companies every year. The 2010 event will take place against the backdrop of the U.S. Postal Service contemplating significant changes to its business model as mail volumes continue to shift in response to changing consumer and business communication styles.
Anticipating the upcoming convention, Pitney Bowes Chairman, President and CEO Murray Martin said: “It makes perfect sense that, as Pitney Bowes celebrates its 90th birthday, we will demonstrate once again the power of great innovations. We want the National Postal Forum audience to be the very first to see the latest game-changing technologies created, nurtured and launched by the undisputed industry leader.”
