STAMFORD, Conn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Pitney Bowes Inc. (NYSE:PBI), a global technology company that provides innovative products and solutions to power commerce, today announced the launch of the SendPro 300 integrated shipping and mailing solution, which streamlines multi-carrier office shipping and mailing for small and medium businesses (SMBs). In this all-in-one solution, the SendPro 300 enables users to manage their sending with the USPS (mailing and shipping) or with FedEx or UPS. The new SendPro 300 solution connects users to the Pitney Bowes Commerce Cloud, unlocking innovative 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 are 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 service, check billing or even order supplies right from its intuitive, responsive touchscreen display.
The SendPro 300 solution also helps SMBs save, including the new AutoInk feature with automatic ink replenishments and savings of 20 percent off the retail ink price. SendPro users save one-half cent on postage for every letter sent with USPS First Class Mail and automatically qualify for discounts on Priority Mail, Priority Mail Express and package services. For example, users save 25 percent on a 5 lb. package shipped locally via Priority Mail and at least 10 percent on all their Priority Mail Express shipments. For shipping with FedEx and UPS, SendPro accesses an organization’s contract rates or published online rates.
From compliant label printing to comparing shipping options, package tracking and consolidated reporting, the SendPro 300 solution allows users to simplify their sending workflow. The SendPro 300 device is equipped with a comprehensive set of mailing features and a label printer to enable users to 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.
SendPro 300 is the latest in a series of groundbreaking offerings from Pitney Bowes that integrate physical and digital processes to streamline office shipping and mailing. 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 center. The SendPro software application, Desktop and Networked SendKits round out the current portfolio. With scales, label printers and the SendPro software, each send kit delivers sending simplicity and savings to any small office or desktop.
Current SendPro software application users are delighted with the convenience, simplicity and value it delivers. “This is by far the most efficient and user-friendly shipping tool I have come across. I have used them all, and this is the best,” said Jeremy Kershaw, Director of Shipping and Receiving at the United Kennel Club, the largest all-breed performance-dog registry in the world.
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. Pitney Bowes is offering its Technology Replacement Option to both existing clients and users of competitive products.
In addition, Pitney Bowes recently expanded its Purchase Power consolidated carrier billing, payments and credit offering to include USPS parcel payments, further simplifying the process by consolidating billing and payments for mailing and shipping in a single monthly bill.
