Whether it is obscure lines and spaces or what appears to be bizarre squares randomly assembled, the scanner is not just for barcodes. It can read characters and decode them properly so as to make the unreadable readable. Intermec Imaging Solutions take advantage of this Optical Character Recognition capability to provide the ability to read checks, license plates, shipping container serial numbers, addresses, labels ? or whatever your mind can imagine. Break out of barcode jail and run free with Imaging Solutions.

Intermec imaging solutions take advantage of the internal scanner and optical character recognition capabilities. Simply aim the scanner at the text and capture the image. The imaging solution will parse the information and update the application. There are numerous imaging solutions available. Here are four of the most common.

Remote Deposit Capture

Remote Deposit Capture is an example of integrating both imaging technologies. The enhanced Mobile Document Imaging and Optical Character Recognition engine are used to capture the image of the check and the routing, account, check number and amount data.

License Plate Verification

The License Plate Verification solution takes advantage of the scanner imaging and Optical Character Recognition capabilities. The scanner captures the license image and the Optical Character Recognition VERDEX engine digitizes the license plate number.

Shipment Address Verification

The Shipment Address Verification solution takes advantage of the scanner imaging and Optical Character Recognition capabilities. The scanner is used to capture an address image and the Optical Character Recognition VERDEX engine digitizes the results. The SAV demo then compares and corrects the address using a database.  Scanning Intermodal Container or shipping container codes is another one of the imaging solutions offered by Intermec.

Mobile Document Imaging

The Mobile Document Imaging solution takes advantage of the camera’s image correction techniques. MDI streamlines office operation and reduces data entry time.

These imaging solutions are some examples of how Intermec can use the capabilities of the camera and scanner to create imaging solutions. Additional imaging solutions include scanning and capturing Bill of Lading data, shipping containers SN, Personal ID, Vehicle Identification Numbers, trash can SN, aircraft tail ID?s, reusable containers, money and numerous other opportunities that you can imagine.
