Austrian Post has opened a new parcel centre in Thalgau that uses sorting automation supported by Prime Vision’s optical character recognition (OCR), video coding and image archiving solution. This is the 10th such Austrian Post parcel centre to use the computer vision technology company’s systems.
Though this is a fairly standard system for Prime Vision’s customer, what stands out according to the company is that it has been highly scalable – it closely resembles the previous nine systems that Prime Vision has installed in the Austrian Post parcel sorting network.
“Austrian Post was one of our very first customers and, over the years, we have built a very close relationship based on mutual trust and cooperation,” explained Prime Vision’s account director, Alexandra Ballestrem. “The flexibility of our concept makes it especially easy for us to add more sorting centers to the solution. It’s a great example of why open architecture systems are so important to dynamic postal operations. They allow easy and cost-effective upgrade and expansion.”
According to the tech company, more automated sorting are already due for launch in the Austrian Post network in the next 12 months.
