A System for In- and Outbound Mail Processing
The FlexCapture system is developed for inbound mail processing, outbound mail recording
and inspecting samples of printed barcodes. The system is capable of processing mixed mail
of any size and is available with two different barcode readers. FlexCapture is designed
to increase productivity with an easy to use, affordable system.
FlexCapture is developed with the following applications in mind:
- Processing Undeliverable Mail
Process returned mail pieces that could not be delivered. Mark and timestamp
items in an existing database or build a new database for further processing.
- Processing of Reply Mail
Use the system to register replies into a database with the returned mail. If
required, capture an image of the mail piece to avoid warehousing.
- Recording of Outgoing Mail
Count, record (barcode) information from outgoing mailpieces and timestamp
them in a database.
- Barcode Verification
Inspect barcodes for readability and ensure that printed barcodes meet the
(postal) specifications. Includes verification of 4-state barcodes (e.g. IMB,
Royal Mail 4-state etc.).
A System for Any Need
You can select a FlexCapture model that suits your needs and your application:
- The system is equipped with a multi thickness feeder that feeds envelopes of any
size at thicknesses up to 1/2 inch (12 mm).
- A choice of two different industry standard camera’s for code reading and capturing
images depending on your needs. The 360 system is also able to inspect barcodes and
perform IMB (Merlin) verification.
- FlexMail or FlexStream software to control the FlexCapture system. The software
enables you to set jobs up according to your needs.
- Date and Time Stamp Inbound Mail
A database of the scanned envelopes is created or records from an existing
database are retrieved and records are time and date stamped.
- Capture Images of Envelopes
FlexCapture has the ability to capture and index an image of the scanned
envelope, eliminating the need to warehouse large amounts of processed
- Record Outbound Mail
Scan outbound mail and mark them in a database just before it enters the
mail stream to provide proof that items were send.
- Verify Printed Barcodes
The FlexCapture 360 system has the ability to check all barcodes for
readability, contrast and module size.
4-state postal barcodes (e.g. IMB, Royal Mail 4-state etc.) can be
checked on all parameters.
Easy Deployment and Operation
The system is extremely easy to setup and guarantees a very fast turn-around
time between varying jobs. Templates are delivered with the system for the
most common jobs.
- Plug and Play installation with automatic detection of the FlexCapture
machine. Only one single TCP/IP connection between the FlexCapture system
and the PC.
- See what the reader sees. Image based reader visualization allows you
to see what the reader sees for image review or no-read feedback, directly
and completely integrated in the FlexMail and FlexStream software.
- Setup from within the software with intelligent tuning. By putting the
most common controls in a single window, allowing the user to see how
different options affect the reader in real time.
- Powerful processing of received input by FlexMail or FlexStream. Processing
steps are defined by filling out some simple setup windows.
