Pitney Bowes is extending the reach of e-commerce with Cloud technology. The global e-commerce and shipping solution provider has created SendPro. SendPro is a cloud-based shipping solution created to keep track of business’s transactions. This technology will help people manage shipments with all of their different carriers.
What is Pitney Bowes’ New Cloud For?
Pitney Bowes is basically offering companies who use SendPro an all-in-one platform to manage their shipments and shipping costs. This way, customers will have access to the best and fastest shipping rates. This move by Pitney Bowes is a giant leap in e-commerce, because it meets the demands of the growing online shopping market.
How Will This Change the Game?
According to Business Insider, last month, the e-commerce company revealed its intentions to focus on helping e-retailers process orders and ship packages. Here is their basic plan:
- Remove friction from the cross-border e-commerce market.
- Ship more products internationally, which is easier since they acquired Borderfree, a company that specializes in selling and shipping products internationally.
- Grow the company’s e-commerce business– it grew 11% in 2015 to reach $215 million
This move is great for the company. This could provide many more opportunities for Pitney Bowes. E-commerce is not just about buying goods online; it’s also about billing and shipping. This new technology will help businesses ship their products on time, at a good price. Pitney Bowes is focusing on how to get their Cloud used by other businesses, now that online shopping is so popular. The new SendPro mailing and shipping technology is a big help to small businesses especially. Small businesses have been using outdated, single carrier shipping methods. But SendPro takes away the stress of shipping for e-commerce.
In addition to this, Pitney Bowes is offering a three-month free trial of SendPro. This way, businesses can decide for themselves if the product is useful for their company without committing to it. Currently, millions of people use Pitney Bowes for their services already.
