Although the company was founded over 95 years ago, Pitney Bowes is a dynamic organization that has transformed itself into a technology powerhouse. Clients around the world, including 90 percent of the Fortune 500, rely on the accuracy and precision delivered by Pitney Bowes solutions, analytics, and APIs in the areas of ecommerce fulfillment, shipping and returns; cross-border ecommerce; presort services; office mailing and shipping; location data; and software.
As part of its continuing evolution, the company launched the Pitney Bowes Commerce Cloud in collaboration with leading cloud technology providers including Amazon Web Services (AWS), Salesforce.com, General Electric, Google and Microsoft. This solution supplies clients with a far-reaching collection of software, analytics, and APIs that improve all aspects of their business such as identifying new customers, facilitating communications, expediting shipping, and collecting payments.
Unsurprisingly, realizing such a comprehensive vision meant that Pitney Bowes needed a fresh, harmonized approach to the way its teams designed, developed, and delivered software solutions. The traditional technique of furnishing each application with its own separate supporting software infrastructure would never scale to the expansive array of products that would constitute the Commerce Cloud. To surmount this challenge, in addition to upskilling its 1400+ global innovators, Pitney Bowes established a dedicated, highly skilled group known as the Commerce Cloud team. This newly created team’s charter was to construct a centralized set of common software services that could be reused across the full spectrum of Commerce Cloud applications.
