Pitney Bowes is more than mailing machines– they are the craftsman of commerce. Today, Pitney Bowes launched their first set of connected mailing systems called SmartLink.
SmartLink offers connectivity as a service with automated postage updates, low postage alerts, usage tracking and analytics, error notifications, and simple self-help tutorials– all with 24/7 online account management features. That secure connectivity for hundreds of 1000s of devices is built on Electric Imp’s platform as a service.
“Being able to plug something onto our devices that doesn’t require us to change them – and is highly secure – is absolutely essential.”
Rick Ryan, Head of Strategic Technology and Innovation Center at Pitney Bowes
This real-world IoT use case is a great example of ways Electric Imp’s technology and services are helping enterprises scale out new products and services safely and securely.
SmartLink is a simple to install and easy to maintain retrofit that enables Pitney Bowes to gain insights from existing machines so they can create a better experience for customers.
