Intermec, Inc. today announced the launch of its latest data collection innovation – VERDEX, providing unprecedented accuracy and efficiency to the mobile postal worker. For use exclusively on Intermec mobile computers, VERDEX is a real-time solution for enhanced data collection, nearly eliminating undeliverable address data to maximize overall ROI and improve customer satisfaction.
“VERDEX offers mobile workers a breakthrough in mobile computing technology by empowering them to quickly and accurately extract and verify postal address information directly from their mobile computer at the point of collection,” said Larry Klimczyk, Vice President of Intermec Global Solutions at Intermec. “This capability combines the elimination of error prone manual data with never-before-seen downstream planning abilities, allowing not only increased efficiency but the accuracy enterprise-class customers require to enhance day-to-day operations.”
VERDEX works by capturing an image of text-based information such as an address or forms data, using a handheld scanner and performs a SmartMatchTM verification against a custom database of information. After verification, the image goes through a cleansing process to provide instant address verification from the point of collection. VERDEX easily integrates into existing parcel collection processes with minimal user intervention, increasing productivity and virtually eliminating all address-related errors.
“As the postal industry continues to rely upon more sophisticated address verification to help eliminate costly issues such as parcels with undeliverable addresses, the demand for an automated data extraction capability is at an all time high, and taking that power all the way to the point of the mobile worker enables the repair of problems before they impact operations,” said Jeanine Sterling, Senior Industry Analyst, Mobile & Wireless Communications, Frost & Sullivan.
Developed in partnership with RAF Technology, Inc., a world-wide leader in advanced pattern and image recognition,a leading provider of enterprise-wide Mobile Device Management (MDM) software VERDEX utilizes commercial or custom databases provided and maintained by RAF, allowing the precise information to pass automatically from the package to pickup and delivery systems.
VERDEX will be available starting in November 2010. For more information, visit www.intermec.com. To follow more from Intermec, visit Intermec’s Trends & Technology blog, www.intermec.com/realtime, or www.twitter.com/intermec.
