STAMFORD, Conn., June 22, 2012 - Pitney Bowes Inc. (NYSE:PBI) announced today that it has selected Systemware, Inc., a leading enterprise content management (ECM) company, as a technology partner for the Volly™ secure digital delivery service. The collaboration on digital mail will enable Systemware customers and prospects to easily transform, package and deliver all customer communications — statements, monthly bills, policy notices, etc. — electronically to consumers through the Volly™ secure digital delivery service.
Volly™ is expected to launch to the consumer market later this year.
“The majority of bills are now paid online, but only a small minority of bills and statements are delivered digitally,” said Chuck Cordray, president of Volly, Pitney Bowes. “By bringing more mailers together onto a single platform, we will create the density that will drive more consumers to choose online delivery. Adding Systemware and its clients to our network is a major step forward.”
Many of the world's largest companies rely on Systemware to capture, store, manage and deliver their statements, bills, declaration packets and many other types of customer communications. With its Digital Mail Gateway, Systemware transforms raw print streams of statements, policy records, shareholder communications and many other types of documents into an exact copy of the paper notice, and delivers an encoded and encrypted file for inclusion into a consumer’s digital mailbox.
“We’re very pleased to partner with Pitney Bowes on Volly, its secure digital delivery service,” said Dan Basso, CEO at Systemware. “By adding the Volly support to our Digital Mail Gateway solution, we are able to make it even easier for corporations to add this new, exciting delivery channel to its customers.”
Digital delivery offers mailers reduced costs and the opportunity to create unique, branded experiences for the consumer. Using the Volly™ secure digital delivery service, consumers will be able to receive, view, organize, manage, pay and store bills, statements and other content from the companies they do business with. The Volly™ service consolidates this information from multiple providers, reducing the consumer’s need to visit multiple websites or send physical checks through the mail.
