STAMFORD, Conn. -- August 29, 2013

A cloud solution from Pitney Bowes Inc. (NYSE: PBI) and NetSuite (NYSE: N) is
helping Canadian nonprofit Caring and Sharing Exchange to optimize their
donation prospect lists with the same tools formerly implemented by global
enterprises. With the Address Validation software alone, Caring and Sharing
saved USD$600,000 which they will now reinvest into their community programs.

“It’s incredible, Pitney Bowes Address Validation for NetSuite allows the
Caring and Sharing Exchange to send much needed assistance to the right
addresses of those families in need, eliminating duplicate addresses so we
don’t over-serve and saving us over $600,000 that can be reinvested into the
community,” said Cindy Smith, Executive Director, Caring and Sharing Exchange.

The Caring and Sharing Exchange helps Ottawa families facing economic hardship
during the Christmas and back-to-school seasons. The Co-ordination Service
verifies the names of clients registered by hundreds of local agencies in
order to eliminate duplicate applications and redistribute funds accordingly.

Pitney Bowes offers the following tips to small businesses, including
nonprofits, seeking to leverage cloud solutions:

  *Cost reductions - Identify areas of the business where a specific software
    solution could dramatically reduce costs, but the capital expenditure to
    implement has traditionally been prohibitive. Cloud solutions can help
    negate the up-front costs.
  *Security first - Keep security top-of-mind and inspect the appropriate
    certification from your provider. It is possible to actually increase the
    security of your data by moving from an on-premise solution to the cloud.
  *Economies of scale – Seek cloud solution providers that offer as many
    relevant applications for your organization as possible.
  *No Square-pegs and round-holes – There is no need to settle for
    off-the-rack technology. You know best the intricacies of your business
    and should work with a cloud partner that can provide highly customizable
    applications, tailored to fit your business needs.
