Compador and Parascript Partner to Offer Mail Processing Solutions in Germany

Longmont, CO, and Stuttgart, Germany, Post Expo Conference, Booth 4020, September 27, 2011 – Parascript, LLC, the image analysis and pattern recognition technology provider, today announced a partnership with Compador Technologies, a leading provider of mail sorting systems in Germany. Compador is committed to the development and manufacturing of first-rate engineering and software solutions. The Compador and Parascript integrated solution meets the requirements of private postal operators by allowing fast mixed-mail sorting, and offering significant reduction of video coding. By improving the reading rate at the first pass and making full use of the sorting system’s maximum capacity, users see reduced costs and increasing productivity.

The Compador mail sorting solution integrates Parascript’s AddressScript Germany for handwritten address recognition using standard Deutsche Post coding rules. Parascript’s AddressScript recognizes addresses across the entire mail stream including letters, flats, and parcels in both handwritten and machine print. Parascript’s OCR software is available for Canada, France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Russia, Sweden, the United Kingdom, and the United States.

“We evaluated several OCR systems and selected Parascript because of its best-of-breed software,” said Karsten Sonnadara, CEO for Compador Technologies. “We are extremely pleased with the results achieved and look forward to many more deployments of our combined mail processing solution.”

“Parascript is proud to be teaming up with Compador in Germany to provide superior mail processing solutions that offer the best read rates and performance available,” said Kaz Jaszczak, director of product planning for Parascript. “We look forward to working closely with Compador and to bringing our best-of-breed technologies to the German market.”

The Compador and Parascript integrated mail sorting solution has been successfully implemented at several private postal operators in Germany, as well as foreign bank companies.
