Parascript Will Contribute Recognition Software to Postal Project

Share this article:
Recognition software vendor Parascript LLC will supply technology for the U.S. Postal Service's Automated Package Processing System, the company said yesterday.


The APPS system, capable of processing 9,500 packages an hour, will automatically sort First-Class bulk mail, Priority Mail envelopes and parcels, and magazines and catalogs. It will replace more than 100 of the mechanized Small Parcel and Bundle Sorting machines at 70 postal facilities nationwide.


The USPS has said the system will be deployed in 2004.


Meanwhile, Parascript, Boulder, CO, last month launched MailMedic, a new automated service designed to reduce undeliverable-as-addressed mail.


MailMedic, which uses Parascript's recognition technology, captures address information from returned UAA mail pieces so that mailers can immediately update information in their customer databases.
