Pitney Bowes White Paper Promotes Benefits of Off-Site Services

STAMFORD, Conn., June 25, 2009 - In today’s recessionary economy, there are new opportunities for organizations to streamline their print and document operations to lower costs, reduce capital outlays, and respond faster to both staff and customer needs, according to a white paper just released by Pitney Bowes Management Services, Inc. (PBMS), a wholly owned subsidiary of Pitney Bowes Inc. (NYSE: PBI).

The white paper, entitled Off-Site Services for the New Economy: Managing Print and Document Processing for Greater Cost Savings, Efficiency and Security, explains that when organizations examine their in-house print and document processing operations, they uncover things such as:

  • The capital needed for print and document processing equipment could be more effectively used to invest in their core business;
  • An uncontrolled use of multiple off-site services such as local print shops and print retail centers can lead to breaches of confidentiality;
  • The larger the vendor base is for off-site sourcing, the larger the administrative and cost burdens.

These and other key issues can be addressed by exploring the broad range of print and document processing solutions now available off-site.

Developing an intelligent best-site strategy for optimal deployment of an organization’s document processing services can help deliver key benefits in three areas: improved operational efficiency, better expense management, and enhanced process management.

The white paper also includes a checklist of off-site document processing solutions available today, a best-site approach and guidelines, best-site benefits, and examples of how organizations can control and reduce “maverick spend,” the problem with ever-increasing budgets for reprographics as well as digital and commercial print services at large enterprises.
