Durham, N.C., May 12, 2015 – Bell and Howell will present products and services highlighting the company’s experience and innovations at the National Postal Forum, May 17-20 at the Anaheim Convention Center in California. In addition to the ParcelMgr automated parcels and flats labeling and sorting solution, booth #231 will also feature a Pinnacle inserter – refurbished through the company’s new Madison, Wisconsin, Service Center – and various kiosks highlighting Bell and Howell Services (including multi-vendor services), inserting solutions, parcel solutions, and sorting hardware and software solutions.

Bell and Howell Chief Technology Officer Brian Bowers will also be giving a presentation on “Strategic Vision for Building the National eCommerce Infrastructure” on Monday, May 18 at 2:45 p.m. in room 213D. His session will address the current market aspects of eCommerce and the barriers of entry, commercial carriers and USPS offerings, and how products should be labeled for the most efficient delivery.

Visitors to booth #231 will be able to meet with mailing and eCommerce experts and learn more about the following solutions:

ParcelMgr with Signature 3000 labeler – ParcelMgr lowers the cost of parcel fulfillment and delivery by automating the tasks of reading, weighing, labeling, and sorting parcels or flats. At speeds of up to 5,000 parcels per hour for typical shipping labels, this sorting-automation solution can pay for itself in a very short time by displacing the need for extra manual labor, while optimizing postage/shipping costs.

Pinnacle inserting system – Highlighting Bell and Howell’s Product Reconditioning Services, this refurbished Pinnacle is an intelligent and easy-to-use mail inserter designed to enhance the productivity and efficiency of mailing centers. The Pinnacle offers one of the most flexible and cost-effective methods of processing mail, while still maintaining job integrity.

Bell and Howell Services – With hundreds of service technicians across North America, Bell and Howell Services is uniquely positioned to provide varying levels of service – from training and maintenance to on-site resident technicians – across a wide spectrum of products and manufacturers both inside and outside of mailing.

Inserting Systems – From the new Producer inserter that can process complex applications at speeds up to 25,000 cycles per hour, to the Inveloper plain-paper-factory finishing system that creates customized envelopes around individual mailpieces, to an extensive offering of card-processing and secure ID solutions, Bell and Howell’s inserting solutions help mailers save money and improve operations efficiency.

“With the rapid expansion of eCommerce and retail shipping, it’s becoming increasingly critical to enable quick and cost-effective omni-channel fulfillment,” said Bell and Howell CEO Ramesh Ratan. “Our next-generation parcel-shipping solutions play a key role in helping customers achieve this, while our innovations continue to improve traditional inserting, sorting, card-processing and service offerings.”
