LAFAYETTE, IN (May 26, 2015) – Engineering Innovation Inc. showcased The Super Champ mail processing system last week at the National Postal Forum in Anaheim to great acclaim.
Featuring a mobile ring scanner outfitted with OCR (optical character recognition) technology, the solution enables rapid processing for induction of commercial parcels into the Postal system at the lowest possible rates.
In January, the USPS changed the rules for all commercial parcels, mandating the use of the Intelligent Mail Parcel BarcodeTM (IMpb). Packages must now not only bear an IMpb, but validated address data (destination delivery address or Delivery Point Validated 11-digit ZIP Code) must also be electronically uploaded to Postal One!
This change enhances the Postal Service’s ability to route, track packages, and report on parcel deliverability. However, the mandate has also created difficulties for many mailers. Hardest hit have been companies that traditionally used meters for obtaining Commercial Base rates for their Priority Mail. Many of these mailers are now paying retail rates because alternatives offered to them are extremely time consuming and cumbersome.
The Super Champ enables quick address validation with IMpb compliance by harnessing the power of a mobile ring scanner. This ergonomically friendly ring scanner scans the address on the mail piece and utilizes our world-class OCR to read that address. Packages can now be processed at rates of 500 pieces per hour and more. The tabletop mail manifesting system is IMpb-compliant across the range of USPS Commercial Parcels, handling not only all types of Priority Mail but also First Class Packages, Bound Printed Matter, Parcel Select, Parcel Select Lightweight and Media/ Library Mail.
