Pitney Bowes’ SendPro 300 integrated shipping and mailing solution streamlines multi-carrier office shipping and mailing for small and medium businesses (SMBs). The all-in-one solution enables users to manage their sending with the USPS (mailing and shipping) or with FedEx or UPS. It connects users to the Pitney Bowes’ Commerce Cloud, unlocking solutions, analytics and APIs across the full commerce continuum. “The Pitney Bowes SendPro family of integrated shipping, mailing and parcel receiving applications is reinventing office shipping and mailing for small and medium businesses,” said Mark Shearer, Executive Vice President and President, Pitney Bowes Global SMB Solutions. “With the growing complexity of sending parcels, flats and mail through multiple carriers with a complex set of rates, service levels, tracking and billing processes, small and medium businesses are searching for ways to simplify their sending and save money. SendPro does both. It supports all office shipping by connecting users to shipping options, compliant label printing and tracking of deliveries. No matter who ships in the office, sending activity for all users and all carriers is consolidated into a single report, helping managers make informed decisions and gain better control over office shipping and mailing costs.”
Through its digital connection to the Pitney Bowes Commerce Cloud, the SendPro 300 smart sending device receives automatic postal rate updates, low ink alerts, service warnings and diagnostic notifications. In addition, users can easily manage key functions – such as request services, check billings or even order supplies from its intuitive touchscreen display. The technology also helps SMBs save money, including the new AutoInk feature with automatic ink replenishments and savings of 20% off the retail ink price, said the company. SendPro 300 is also equipped with a comprehensive set of mailing features and a label printer to enable users can easily process letters and ship packages from the touchscreen display. SendPro 300 users will have access to the information they need to select the best carrier option for each item based on service level and price. For higher volume mailers, the SendPro P Series integrates hardware and software in a single solution that drives greater efficiency, visibility,and tracking in the mail centre. The SendPro software application, Desktop and Networked SendKits round out the current portfolio. With scales, label printers and the SendProsoftware, each send kit “delivers simplicity and savings to any small office or desktop.”
Pitney Bowes also unveiled a new Technology Replacement Option (TRO) that allows clients to upgrade to the new SendPro 300 without having to wait until their current lease term expires. This early access to the latest technology is critical to help small business clients save on shipping costs across multiple carriers including USPS, FedEx and UPS, said the company. Pitney Bowes is offering its Technology Replacement Option to both existing clients and users of competitive products.
