Criterion APEXSorting System
NetSortSorting Software Platform
Forerunner 13 inserting system featuring Navigator and Harmonix
- Harmonix system software dynamically increases or decreases the inserter cycle speed based on how the machine is performing, and the set size distribution from an input feeder. The machine adjusts its production speed based on the uniqueness of the application, without operator influence.
- The Navigator system controller acts as a command center for any Bell and Howell inserting system. With Navigator, operators can improve productivity by performing their operational duties while communicating with the system using optional voice commands. Navigator also provides live chat support to minimize downtime from service issues and maximize runtime, resulting in a lower cost per piece.
Postal IQ Solutions
- The Mail Manager suite of high-performance software packages provide CASS- and PAVE-approved, best-in-class address cleansing and presorting technology for mailers of any size or need. They support both Basic and Full Service Intelligent Mail barcodes and provide real-time access to Move Update services and advanced address correction.
-Accurant provides an extensible address-quality solution anywhere customer data is entered, edited or enhanced. It can be implemented at all data touch points for transactional data entry or used as a stand-alone CASS-certified solution on multiple operating systems in both 32- and 64-bit multi-threaded environments.
