Pitney Bowes Introduces End-to-End Messaging Model at XPLOR 2001
Press release from the issuing company
STAMFORD, Conn., October 23, 2001- Pitney Bowes Inc. (NYSE: PBI), the leading global provider of integrated mail, message and document management solutions will demonstrate the valuable benefits of a closed-loop messaging model at the XPLOR International Trade Show, October 29 though November 1, at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida.
Attendees who visit the Pitney Bowes booth (# 908) will observe how companies can save money, increase efficiency, and foster customer relationships by linking all parts of their message and document life cycle. In addition, Pitney Bowes will display new products and services focusing on the five components of document management- create, produce distribute, receive and update.
"Historically, high volume mailers have treated the separate components of their message cycle as silos," stated Brian Baxendale, president, Pitney Bowes Document Messaging Technologies. "Because of this, companies have found it difficult to leverage the enterprise-wide benefits offered through integration of successful Customer Relationship Management, one-to-one marketing and electronic bill and statement presentment practices into their messaging cycles. This year alone, Pitney Bowes has made significant investments in new services, technology and resources, including the acquisition of Alysis Technologies, and the strategic partnership with MailCode, to provide customers with complete end-to-end messaging solutions."
Launching this year will be the new Pitney Bowes Advanced Productivity System (APS-18). Driven by two years of extensive customer research, this high speed mail
inserting solution offers impressive 18,000 piece-per-hour speed but remains flexible enough to adapt to new applications with minimum downtime. Utilizing Direct Connect and Health Check technology, the new solution provides unmatched monitoring and reporting capabilities to ensure mailing jobs remain on time and on budget.
Also featured will be a totally integrated end-to-end document and message management solution which incorporates document creation tools from Pitney Bowes docSense including D3 software that enables digital document creation and distribution, Streamweaver 2001, Return Mail Workstation, Siteview and e-mailAngel- a new email forwarding product designed to combat the high churn rates of electronic mail addresses. Also exhibited will be two intelligent inserting systems featuring the Flowmaster chassis, the M3 inbound sorting system and document distributing solutions from MailCode including the Olympus II outbound and inbound sorting equipment. For companies wishing to outsource mail and document management, Pitney Bowes Management Services will exhibit integrated mail and document solutions as well as business recovery services.
