EZ-Flats Essential

Essential Utility

The EZ-Flats Essential offers a solution for obtaining automation postage discounts from the USPS. EZ-Flats Essential encompasses a process in which the system identifies the address on a mail piece through the OCR and the operator manually applies the barcoded label.

The introductory model for the EZ-Flats system, Essential is geared for daily runs of 500-2000 flats, and can process 700-1000 flats per hour (1-2 operators). The Essential solution allows the operator to sort, manifest, and bill all from one convenient location. This version enables mailers with lower flats volumes to achieve high levels of profitability with a low initial capital outlay. As volumes increase, users can directly upgrade to the Enhanced or Premium models. The Essential solution features best-of-class OCR technology and works with Parascript™ and/or RAF Platinum™. Its server-based configuration enables several EZ-Flats machines to work in parallel for processing higher volumes. The system installs easily in an afternoon and operators are up to speed in 15 minutes. A touch screen monitor provides easy access to both workstation computer and server. The system also includes label printer and barcode scanner for automatic customer chargeback.
