#Ipex: Pitney Bowes to Showcases Ability to Integrate Print and Mail
HARLOW, UK—February 9, 2010—Pitney Bowes will exhibit at Ipex 2010 with the ‘missing piece’ from its product portfolio impressively filled and with its stand branded to display a critical message for all high volume print and mailers — ‘1ntegrate’.
The Pitney Bowes showcase will demonstrate how the company’s pre- and post-print software and hardware portfolio has been boosted with the addition of the IntelliJet Printing System—the result of Pitney Bowes’ strategic alliance with HP.
With the addition of the IntelliJet Printing System, Pitney Bowes takes a significant foothold in the production print market and becomes the one vendor able to demonstrate a truly integrated end-to-end print and mail offering.
The Pitney Bowes stand will provide a clear vision of the business benefits that are driven by integration. Hardware and software presentations will demonstrate how integrating these functions can improve operational performance, help to build stronger customer relationships and provide the scope to produce more timely, personalised and relevant customer communications.
Software driven integration
The full range of Pitney Bowes Production Intelligence software solutions will be demonstrated - effectively the brain-power behind print and mail integration. Experts will be on hand to show how this intuitive software can improve the control and efficiency of document workflows across an enterprise, from robust Output Management solutions, Automated Document Factory (ADF) management solutions to Multi-Channel and Hybrid Mail enabling solutions.
Launch! Three new inserters
The Pitney Bowes exhibit will showcase THREE new inserters, adding further choice and flexibility to the industry’s leading portfolio. The new systems are tailored at specific industry needs – one aimed squarely at the transaction mail market, another designed to work alongside production insertion technology to finish reprints and small jobs without compromising productivity or integrity levels, and the final new addition serving as a flexible companion to the proven DPS range. Full details will be announced at the show.
Ronald van Hees, Marketing Director, Pitney Bowes, comments: “Ipex 2010 will demonstrate that the Pitney Bowes portfolio boasts solutions that cover every aspect of the mail and messaging process – from data-quality and integrity, to printing, inserting and sorting.
“We expect to create a real buzz with our new solutions and with the sheer breadth of our capabilities. There will be no other stand at Ipex that delivers the end-to-end processing story in such a convincing and demonstrable fashion, or that offers dedicated solutions for the particular transactional and direct marketing markets as well as the fast-moving world of TransPromo.”
IntelliJet Printing System
A giant-screen video will convey the power of the new IntelliJet Printing System – detailing how the system has been designed to operate consistently at 400 feet per minute with a 30” wide format and 1,200 x 600 dpi color quality. Outputs from the IntelliJet will be used within on-stand demonstrations to explain how the Pitney Bowes mail creation, insertion and finishing portfolio dovetails seamlessly with this new color print powerhouse – creating synergies that help to reduce costs and improve the quality of customer communications.
The Pitney Bowes stand will also showcase the latest developments to two established industry-favourite inserters.
Mailstream Productivity Series 26 (MPS 26) The latest addition to the MPS family enables high-volume production mailers to achieve the highest throughput with the greatest degree of flexibility, running up to 26,000 mailpieces per hour. The MPS 26 has been designed to harness the power of the IntelliJet print engine with its ability to seamlessly process the IntelliJet’s 3-up output. The MPS will also connect to the new Pitney Bowes Envelope Finishing System (EFS™), an on-envelope color printer that enables 1-to-1 variable TransPromo messaging – further enhancing the ‘openability’ of customer communications.
FPS Split Drive Inserting System
Mailers running applications in DL, C5 and C4 envelopes can see a new level of ease and simplicity on the FPS Split Drive Inserting System. The name says it all – the FPS™ Split Drive system allows the inserter to separate document collation assembly and the envelope insertion function processes to maximise productivity. With the largest installed base worldwide, this industry workhorse can increase uptime with its new changeover capabilities, which enables the FPS system to go from a DL, C5 to C4 envelopes format, quickly and easily.
These are just some of the highlights of Pitney Bowes’ Ipex 2010 showcase. Further details will be released as Showtime approaches. The Ipex stand represents Pitney Bowes’ biggest ever exhibition space — an impressive space dedicated to a powerful message: ‘1integrate’.
