Pitney Bowes Inc. (PBI - Analyst Report) released a white paper, a guide to help the companies to better understand and solve the issues regarding print management. The paper, entitled “THE POWER OF PRINT OUTSOURCING,” will be helpful for organizations looking for optimization of print production and distribution and also for coordination of print with communications across channels.

The paper includes discussions on why and how outsourcing print management derives benefits in overall customer servicing, thereby generating significant cost savings. In the current times of technological innovation, marketing focus has shifted from print media to digital media. But print is still crucial in its own terms.

PBI in its paper explains how outsourcing and proper management to leverage print spending can generate significant savings of up to 30%, along with better quality and reduced risk and ensuring compliance at the same time.

PBI has a glorious history of designing, implementing and operating innovative document management solutions. Based on this, the International Association of Outsourcing Professional recently ranked the company as one of the worlds top outsourcing providers. This white paper is an addition to the company’s multiple business solutions and consulting services.

Recently, PBI also helped healthcare providers to avoid paying fines by reducing readmission of patients who have been discharged within a period of one month. As per federal law, such acts by hospitals attract penalties.

Therefore, PBI’s Collaborative communication system, Health Point 360 will help the health care providers maintain a communication before and after the discharge of a patient which will result in a controlled and reduced number of readmissions.

Pitney Bowes currently has a Zacks Rank #3 (Hold). However, some other companies that are worth looking into include Symantec Corp. (SYMC - Analyst Report) which has a Zacks Rank #1 (Strong Buy) and Tyco International (TYC - Analyst Report) having a Zacks Rank #2 (Buy). Xerox Corp.(XRX - Analyst Report) has a Zacks Rank # 3(Hold).
