In many high-volume mailing applications, special dedicated software (usually Windows-based) is required to insert Optical Mark Recognition (OMR) characters or barcodes. This adds a layer of complexity and another possible workflow break point/bottleneck. In addition, adding Windows servers dedicated just to run mail automation/OMR software causes additional overhead in UNIX, Linux and AS/400 environments.
AXIAR’s Mail Automation Module integrates simple ladder Optical Mark Recognition characters and/or any barcode (3 of 9, Data Matrix 2-D, PostNet, interleaved 2 of 5, more) into the print job directly from application output. AXIAR can apply the appropriate machine commands for insertions, envelopes, etc. based on the content of the print job. AXIAR runs on Windows, UNIX, Linux and AS/400 servers, eliminating the need for a dedicated mail automation software server.
Process improvements: Manual sorting, collating, folding, inserting, and sealing envelopes is automated.
Employee efficiency gains: Manpower requirements are reduced by more than 70%, providing an aggressive return on investment.
Mailing cost savings: Mail automation and duplex printing reduce postage by minimizing the need for large/oversized envelopes.
Consumables cost savings: Paper costs are further reduced by using AXIAR Deliver to duplex print these documents. AXIAR sorts and groups letters being sent to the same recipient and address for additional savings.
Security improvements: Automating the outgoing mail process eliminates human errors, increasing the security of personal information.
AXIAR’s Mail Automation Module is compatible with Pitney-Bowes, Neopost (and other Neopost brands) and Plockmatic hardware (contact us if another device is required).
