GAITHERSBURG, Md.—November 5, 2015—MCS Inc. is pleased to announce that Data-Mail of Newington, Connecticut, has invested in the fourth and fifth Pitney Bowes MailStream Directs from MCS Inc. Data-Mail was the first customer of the MailStream Direct and worked closely with both Pitney Bowes and MCS to bring the MailStream Direct to the advertising mail market.
As one of the most successful letter shops in the industry, Data-Mail has always been on the leading edge of technology from its inception.

The MailStream Direct ultra-high-speed inserter cycles at an industry leading 22,000 cycles/hr. and has proven to be flexible enough for the challenges of the advertising mailing market.
The MailStream Direct offers:
- cycling speed of 22,000 pieces/hr.

"The ultra-high-speed of the Pitney Bowes MailStream Direct complements the flexibility of our 30 Pitney Bowes FlowMasters. We can process from 3 to 6 million pieces a day, and every day is a new challenge. The MailStream Direct offers us a new tool to meet our customers' needs for quick turnaround and high integrity," Braunstein added.
