MailVision®

MailVision is a software platform that allows the design of flexible and versatile solutions to supervise and control the processing of high-volume document and mail-kit production.

 

The MailVision solutions:

 

·         Eliminate a significant portion of the labor associated with quality control for complex, high-value applications

·         Inspect each and every document that passes under its reading device

·         In the event of an error, diverts the error pieces or stops production automatically, sounds an alert and displays an error indication on its screen interface

·         Massively increase the integrity of document output, and substantially reduce the cost of achieving this level of integrity

·         Log all activity in detailed, customizable data table architectures for end-to-end validated mail-kit and document production

Benefits – “Productivity & Costs”

 

·         Eliminates high-cost sampling, fanning and related labor-intensive manual quality control procedures.

·         Reduces down-time caused by manual quality control methods and increases the capacity of production mail and document processing equipment.

·         Reduces spoilage and re-work.

·         Offers an easy-to-use interface for set-up mechanics and operators.

·         Identifies document errors in real-time and enables validated variable print document processing at top throughput.

·         Enables management by measurement; by gathering data on every document and mail-kit processed, MailVision “sees” production output from each unit of host equipment MailVision integrates with and each operator MailVision interfaces with.

 

Benefits – “Customers & New Business”

 

·         Improves key account penetration by enabling new validated variable document production applications.

·         Expands service levels by increasing the capacity of production equipment and the quality of document output.

·         Raises service levels by providing comprehensive, feature-rich reporting functionality.

·         Increases the quality of document processing output by preventing against error documents and mail-kits from entering the output stream.

·         Enables exceptionally flexible, validated variable document compositioning options.

·         Provides flexible job processing options resulting in better use of document “real estate” and improved aesthetic presentment.

·         Enhances corporate image through the use of state-of-the-art document processing technology.

 

Applications

 

·         Matching of multiple documents

·         Component selective inserting

·         Read and print: in-line inkjet addressing/1:1 messaging

·         Base stock validation

·         Address Block validation

·         Numeric, and alphanumeric, sequence verifications

·         Component grouping

·         Combination of any of the above-mentioned functionalities

 

Readings

 

·         Alphanumeric characters (OCR)

·         Bi-dimensional barcodes (e.g, DataMatrix, PDF417)

·         Linear barcodes (e.g., Code 39, Code 128, Interleave 2 of 5)

·         Patterns & symbologies

·         Custom codes

·         Optical marks

·         Magnetic stripes

·         RFID

 

Solutions

 

Multiple Match

 

The Multiple Match solutions compare personalized information and guarantee that this information complies with the pre-defined set of business rules.

The matching occurs in real time between the different components, and can be numeric to numeric, alphanumeric to alphanumeric, numeric to alphanumeric (using a data source) and alphanumeric to data source.

These solutions can be setup to delay/shift the matching between each component and to perform a partial match between each component’s personalized information.

These solutions provide full traceability and reporting features, guaranteeing 100% integrity of the whole process.

 

Selective

 

The Selective solutions are designed to address the database segmentation growing requirements.

These solutions start by reading some unique identifier that may, or may not include the selective information.

When it includes it, this can be presented in variable formats (e.g., bit-coded). When it does not, the information is used to lookup an ODBC data source that will contain the selective information.

The piece is tracked down during the whole process from entrance to exit, and the selective outputs configurable timings are activated when needed.

These solutions provide full traceability and reporting features, guaranteeing 100% integrity of the whole process.

 

Select & Match

 

The Selective and Match solutions combine the Multiple Match and the Selective solutions.

These flexible and versatile solutions are totally configurable and allow the selective and match solutions to be completely independent or directly related. When independent the selective components do not have personalized information. When the selective components have personalized information, this can be used for matching purposes when the component is selected.

 

Match & Print

 

The Match & Print solutions combine the Multiple Match and the Read & Print solutions.

The combination of the match & print creates a very flexible turn key solution that addresses a larger range of potential applications.

Totally configurable, this solution can be setup as a simple match or a simple read and print.

Optionally, a second reading device can be used after the printer to verify the integrity of the printed piece.

These solutions provide full traceability and reporting features, guaranteeing 100% integrity of the whole process.

 

Address Block

 

The Address Block solutions verify the integrity of a mail-kit address block preventing mail-kits with invalid address blocks to be mailed.

These solutions capture an image of the piece that contains an address block and verifies that the address block is readable. The solution assumes that the address block is valid if the Postnet code is readable.

On an error, the piece can be marked for divert or the system can be halted and the operator informed of the error.

All of the job’s data, including any exceptions, are logged providing the solution with 100% integrity and traceability.

 

Base Stock

 

The Base Stock solutions verify that the correct stock is being used for the specified job.

These solutions can have one or more reading devices (alphanumeric character fonts, 1D and 2D barcodes) and verify that each reading has the expected information. This information is input to the system during the job setup, either by manually input or by sample reading.

On error the solution automatically stops the processing line and alerts the operator.

All of the job’s data, including any exceptions, are logged providing the solution with 100% integrity and traceability.

 

Read & Print

 

The Read & Print solutions are allow variable data printing in real time, based on the reading of a unique piece identifier.

These solutions read a unique piece identifier, obtain the printing data from an ODBC data source and delay/shift print that data on most ink jet printing systems.

These solutions are also responsible for tracking each piece read and provide the printer with the correct data when necessary. This guarantees total independence from the printer used.

Optionally, a second reading device can be used after the printer to verify the integrity of the printed piece.

These solutions provide full traceability and reporting features, guaranteeing 100% integrity of the whole process.

Sequence Verification

 

The Sequence Verification solutions verify that each piece is processed in the correct order, defined by a set of configurable parameters or by information provided by a data source.

These solutions can also include additional validations on each piece, such as validating certain piece features based on pre-defined expected features.

On error the solution automatically stops the processing line and alerts the operator.

All of the job’s data, including any exceptions, are logged providing the solution with 100% integrity and traceability.

 

Grouping

 

The Grouping solutions verify the correct accumulation of a set of similar pieces.

These solutions can have one or more reading devices (e.g. alphanumeric OCR, 1D and/or 2D barcode reading). These solutions can also verify if the set are accumulated in a certain, configurable, sequence order.

On error the solution automatically stops the processing line and alerts the operator.

All of the job’s data, including any exceptions, are logged providing the solution with 100% integrity and traceability.
