Businesses of all sizes continue to rely on mail as an effective, affordable, relevant and timely method of communication with their clients. Ensuring that every piece of mail or publishing item (e.g. booklet, catalog, magazine etc.) is correctly processed, inserted and delivered is only possible due to the continuing advancement in camera-based integrity systems that allow Printers, Mailers, and Finishers to automate the verification and inspection of billions of letters, mail and published items each year.
- Reliable reading and matching of a multitude of symbologies (barcodes and OCR text) at high speeds
- Ability to provide multiple capabilities simultaneously; such as collation control, comparison to a data file, image archiving and integrity reporting at high production speeds.
- Ability to ensure that all items within a print file are processed without missing or duplicate pieces.
- Verify IMB, Mailmark and other postal barcodes for readability and accuracy.
- Automate Return Mail scanning and data capture
- Page and signature integrity management on Bindery and Finishing equipment
- In-line inkjet printing with multi-zone real-time tracking to ensure the correct variable, matched information is printed on the correct piece.
- ADF and piece level reporting across a wide range of production processes and types of equipment to prove production integrity.
- Enterprise, multi-step, multi-device “Print to Mail” piece level tracking and integrity management
Solutions for Mailing & Finishing
Production and fulfillment of statements, invoices, credit cards and election services documents require verification systems to identify errors and prove production integrity with absolute results.

Bindery and Finishing
Today’s bindery departments and service providers have a myriad of finishing equipment from guillotines and trimmers, folders and creasers, collators and booklet-makers to binders and laminators which gives them the flexibility to offer a wide range of finishing capabilities. Most of these require skilled personnel to precisely configure, setup and to constantly monitor, in order to ensure that a perfect booklet, catalog, magazine or bounded document is produced every time.
However, when something goes wrong it can be both time-consuming to trace the exact problem to a specific step or equipment, and very costly to reconfigure and set-up the various processing steps again to reproduce the work.
