Technology solutions provider Pitney Bowes has announced the roll-out of its SendPro+ and SendPro C systems in the UK, saying the all-in-one shipping and mailing solution makes it easy for businesses to choose the best value sending option for each letter or parcel with Royal Mail and Parcelforce Worldwide.
“Sending mail and parcels is an important part of a business’s customer experience, but the broad range of different shipping options available can make sending complex, costly and time-consuming. We’ve removed this complexity with SendPro+ and SendPro C, integrating sophisticated design innovation with user-friendly touchscreen Android interfaces and SaaS-based systems. Both technologies are Mailmark compliant, so users benefit from substantial discounts and can send mail from any location,” said Ryan Higginson, vice president and UK/ROI country leader, Pitney Bowes.
The company suggested that selecting the right delivery times, identifying the most appropriate tracking options and calculating sending costs are labor-intensive tasks for businesses. Both SendPro+ and SendPro C simplify these processes.
Each SendPro device has a touchscreen, Android interface and real-time tracking. SendPro+ leverages SaaS-based systems to generate real-time carrier information, tracking capabilities, alerts, reports and analytics. These provide clear visibility into every end-to-end journey for Royal Mail and Parcelforce Worldwide tracked shipments. The technology has a digital scale to assign the correct parcel label or postage, and an integrated label printer which enables the printing of compliant shipping labels directly from the device.
Meanwhile, SendPro C streamlines and simplifies mail processing through its tablet display and shows support options such as notifications, diagnostics and support articles. For both technologies, the company said automatic rate updates and a shared address book across available carriers save time and automate laborious manual processes.
Additionally, standardized spending and usage reports give businesses visibility over costs and users also benefit from substantial Mailmark postage discounts.
