STAMFORD, Conn. -- December 19, 2012

Pitney Bowes Management Services (PBMS) a wholly owned subsidiary of Pitney
Bowes Inc. (NYSE: PBI), today announced it has been placed by Gartner, Inc. in
the Visionary Quadrant of the 2012 Magic Quadrant for Managed Print Services
(MPS) Worldwide.^[1] Pitney Bowes believes this placement supports the
innovative approach it takes in the managed print services marketplace as the
largest hardware-independent provider that helps companies better manage their
document flows and print less.

Developed by Gartner to evaluate how well technology providers are executing
against their current vision, the Magic Quadrant is a proprietary research
tool, which provides insight into a market’s direction, maturity and
participants.

“MPS is more than rightsizing a fleet of hardware and reducing the cost of
printed documents, it is about improving your company’s workflow,” said
Christopher Casinella,  vice president, Managed Output & Mail Solutions, PBMS.
“Pitney Bowes leverages its document management and process expertise to
carefully examine document flows and the processes that drive them to help
customers streamline business processes and workflows to print less. This is
where the real value lies for customers, not in simply managing an
organization’s device network and supplies. We focus on the document first and
deliver a solution that changes user behavior.”

In line with its visionary approach to optimizing document workflow and
output, not hardware, Pitney Bowes released a white paper -- “Optimizing Print
to Truly Print Less”. This paper provides insights on how companies can drive
significant efficiencies and savings by optimizing their workflow before
locking into long term contracts for print devices. In addition, the paper
reveals ways to reduce the number of printed pages necessary within each
business process with advanced technology, including Adobe® LeanPrint, an
enterprise-class, software-only printing solution that dramatically reduces
print costs by using an innovative method to reformat document layouts and by
reducing ink on a page. Visit www.pb.com for a complimentary copy of
“Optimizing Print to Truly Print Less.”
