Pitney Bowes to feature Mailstream at Print09

Wednesday, September 02, 2009

Press release from the issuing company

STAMFORD, CT, -- Pitney Bowes Inc. will showcase its latest technology and solutions for commercial printers, direct mailers and transaction mailers at PRINT 09, this year's largest graphic communications exhibition and conference, scheduled for McCormick Place in Chicago, September 11-16.  Pitney Bowes will be located at Booth 7708.

The Pitney Bowes exhibit will highlight how effectively the company can deliver production intelligence to mailers of all types. In keeping with its theme of "1ntegrate," the company converts complexity into simplicity through integration of print and mail processes.  The Pitney Bowes exhibit will showcase the hardware, software and services required to create a seamless and efficient high-volume mail operation, beginning with pre-print processes through induction into the mailstream.

Key Pitney Bowes technologies on display in Chicago include the mailstream Productivity Series (MPS) ultra-high-speed inserting system, which will run a high-integrity, full-color application at breakthrough speed.  This system will feature the new Mailstream Merging Module that cuts, merges and matches color coupons up to 80,000 per hour with a multiple-page color document, then inserts it into an inline color personalized envelope to enhance its openability.  To further demonstrate high integrity, the MPS is equipped with the exclusive Privacy Guard and iSite Vision solutions.

Mailers running letter and flat applications can see a new level of ease and simplicity on the FPS Split Drive Inserting System. With the largest installed base worldwide, this industry workhorse can increase uptime with its new No Changeover module, which enables the FPS system to go from letters-to-flat mail quickly and easily.  See the live changeover every day at noon and 2 PM.  Additionally, the FPS system will feature the iSite Vision Solutions that demonstrate enhanced levels of integrity and proof of mailing.  The FPS system will also be showcased in the HP booth #1229, leveraging its inkjet technology to print personalized color transpromo messages inline.
For commercial printers and direct mailers, new solutions designed to expand services and increase profits will be on display.  The FlowMaster RS Flex Inserting System will have a new enhanced servo-powered sheet fed input, which expands the type of applications that can be processed on this flexible inserter. The system will feature new integrity solutions and on-demand in-line printing on the envelope with variable addressing, logo and message printing.

Attendees can also see the new Dual Tabber Solution that is USPS compliant, and the enhanced AT2 Product Attaching System that can feed up to eight cards per system. Additionally, Pitney Bowes is featuring an array of sorting solutions integrated with end-to-end job tracking.  The VariSort Mixed Mail Sorter automates difficult to sort mail, even Polywrap sheets, and the EZ-Flats Sorting System enables both inbound and outbound applications for flat mail.
"Creating opportunities to streamline costs, drive new revenues, or both – that's what Pitney Bowes is all about," said Leslie Abi-Karam, executive vice president and president, Mailing Solutions Management, Pitney Bowes. "We are very excited about the opportunities PRINT 09 offers to meet with printers and mailers to showcase our latest technologies and solutions."

For the midsize business segment, Pitney Bowes will display a range of productivity-juicing products and services.  Among these are the newly-launched OfficeRight DF900 Folder, which can fold up to 20,000 pieces per hour in seven distinct folding options that can meet the needs of a wide range of business applications, from invoices to newsletters. For mailers who are looking to use technology to enhance the information value of their mail, Pitney Bowes is introducing two new services at Print 09. The first is TrackItBack Pro for Intelligent Mail, which will allow mailers to know when a customer has put a payment into the mailstream, reducing the need for follow-up calls. The second is a desktop application tied to PrecisionTrack, which will allow mailers to manage their Intelligent Mail barcodes and keep them in compliance with U.S. Postal Service requirements.

Pitney Bowes will also provide free seminars to PRINT 09 participants throughout the show.  These seminars, conducted by thought leaders and business experts from the company, will take place inside the Pitney Bowes booth per the following schedule:
