STAMFORD, Conn., September 09, 2010 - Pitney Bowes Management Services, Inc. (PBMS), a wholly owned subsidiary of Pitney Bowes Inc.

Johanna Boller, global product director, Managed Mail Services, PBMS, stated that, “the Pitney Bowes Digital Mail Solution showcases our innovation in mail and document technologies in several ways that are unique over other digital mail offerings available today. First, our solution integrates directly into our customers’ email systems so users receive their digital mail in the familiar email interface.
