Today over 90% of letter mail is sorted by machines. However, 5-7% of the volume still has to be sorted manually, either because the address is difficult to read or because the physical format of the mail does not fit the sorting machines. Abakus Voice Sorting Solution based on voice technology is designed to sort out letters rejected by sorting stations with enhanced productivity and high sorting quality.

Today over 90% of letter mail is sorted by machines. However, 5-7% of
the volume still has to be sorted manually, either because the address is
difficult to read or because the physical format of the mail does not fit the
sorting machines. Abakus Voice Sorting Solution based on voice technology is
designed to sort out letters rejected by sorting stations with enhanced
productivity and high sorting quality.

 

Fast sorting speed

Improved sorting quality and speed of problematic mail compared to OCR sorting.


Lean unit

Doesn’t require special sorting stations, utilizes existing or custom bin structures.
 

Easy to use

No special training nor prior sorting experience needed.
Only industrial PC with network connection and a headset is needed.
 

Intelligent and powerful

Can handle routing and sequencing needs, both online and offline.





Manual sorting comparision

Voice sorting solution enables postal employees to efficiently and accurately sort all letters. The solution is simple to use, and uses the same address and route database
than the large sorting machines. Sorting based on voice recognition is fast and error free.


FeatureVoice sortingOCR sortingComment
Suitable to supplement OCR sorting automationYesNo
• 5-7% of letters are rejected by sorting automation,
requiring manual sorting.

• OCR based sorting stations cannot sort what another
OCR system has rejected.

Handwritten address resolutionNear 100%<80%• OCR sorting figure based on maximum recognition
rate claimed by OCR station vendor data.

Sorting speed (letters / operator / hour)500-700300-400• In OCR sorting each item processing starts from fixed
OCR station.

• Voice sorting enables sorting from hands to bin, thus
eliminating work phases from the repetitive process.

Sorting binFreely selectable, based on local needs.Fixed• Reliable OCR resolution requires high quality camera
and stable lightning conditions. This is normally achieved
with an embedded OCR station and fixed lightning.
Since each letter goes from OCR reader directly to bin,
the bin need to be integrated to the OCR station. This might not support well local conditions such as route and sequencing differences.

• Voice sorting doesn’t require special sorting stations. It can utilize existing or custom bin structures.

Sorting station required hardware• Industrial PC
• Barcode reader (optional)
• Headset
• OCR reader including industrial PC and
barcode reader
• Fixed bin structure
• OCR station are heavy fixed units with limited configuration possibilities.

• Voice sorting station is a lean unit. Only industrial PC with network connection and a headset is needed. Local conditions can easily be adapted.
