At last week’s Hunkeler event Pitney Bowes announced its new Epic Inserting System. This is a high-speed multi-format solution that can process complex transactional mail applications.
It’s based on the proven Mailstream Productivity Series (MPS) inserting platform. The new solution will help high volume transactional print and mail service providers – particularly those processing mail in the financial services, insurance, healthcare and telecommunications industries – to move swiftly and easily from job to job and from letters to flats in a single workcell.
It can track mail pieces in real time from end to end. It can follow all pieces within a job and reduces spoilage and job reconciliation requirements through real-time paper path corrections. It’s compatible with mobile devices so that operators can view progress and identify risks.
Grant Miller, Vice President, Global Strategic Product Management, Pitney Bowes, says that it’s designed to offer improved performance and cost efficiency, adding: “By maximizing productive uptime and minimizing labour and material costs, Epic will help our clients pursue more profitable service level agreements and expand their capabilities to meet future market demands.”
Pitney Bowes is also to sell its direct markeing solution, Mailstream Engage, in Europe for the first time. It combines digital print and variable data software to produce high impact, personalised, full colour packets from standard A4-size paper in a single pass. It lets marketers create personalized full colour packets complete with reply envelopes, membership cards, business cards and magnets.
