Pitney Bowes Clarity monitoring system

Pitney Bowes launches new production mail software, the Clarity solutions suite. This is an SaaS-based offering, hosted on GE’s Predix platform, that takes data collected from sensors on production mail machines and analyses it in real time.

Jason Dies, president of Pitney Bowes Document Messaging Technologies, explained: “In its simplest form, production mail is about getting the right information, in the right envelope, to the right customer at precisely the right time, millions of times each day. It is an industry measured in tenths-of-pennies and fractions-of-seconds. Clarity provides our clients with a view of their operations and our industry on a micro and global level that was never before visible – from the performance of a specific motor on a single machine, to the productivity benchmarks of leading print and mail operations around the world.”

The Clarity suite includes three elements. Clarity Advisor proactively monitors trends and patterns to diagnose and resolve many issues before they occur. Clarity Optimizer uses actionable insights and industry benchmarks to identify an optimal combination of jobs, machines and operators. Clarity Scheduler provides real-time adaptive scheduling.

The Clarity Suite will be available on Pitney Bowes production mail inserting solutions in North America in March, 2016, Europe in Q2 and globally by 2017. It will also be demonstrated at this year’s Drupa.

You can license the articles from Printing and Manufacturing Journal to reproduce in other publications. I generally charge around £150 per article but I’m open to discussing this for each title, particularly for publishers that want to use multiple stories. I can provide high res versions of images for print publications.

I’m used to working with overseas publishers and am registered for VAT with the UK’s HMRC tax authority but obviously won’t charge VAT to companies outside the UK. You can find further details and a licensing form from this page, or just contact me directly here.
