Mailpiece Integrity

The use of 2D barcodes is a best in class method to ensure the highest quality possible for every mail piece. When 2D barcodes are used, the original processing file is sent to a computer on the inserting machine. During processing, the inserting machine will read a barcode on the page and when it does, it will match that barcode to a record in the file to verify each page as it’s processed.

As the mail piece exits the system, an exit scan is performed to verify that every mail piece actually made it through the inserting machine. Reporting is provided to show the sequence of barcodes scanned through the window of the envelopes. By using the 2D barcode, you avoid older more error prone inserting methods such as:

  • Manual feeding static and specific number of pages, which is a slow and error prone process.
  • Optical Mark Recognition which does not allow for a unique identity for customer’s pages and requires a lot of clear space on a document.
  • 3 of 9 or 128 barcodes can get large very quickly the more information they contain and take up space on the page.
