Intermec Technologies

(NYSE:IN)
, a leading
provider of hardware and
software solutions
, today announced
the regional
availability

of
VERDEX


the first mobile address
extraction and verification technology for the A
ustralian

and New Zealand

supply chain

sector.

VERDEX works by capturing an image o
f text
-
based information such as an address or forms data,
using a handheld scanner and performs a SmartMatch


verification against a custom database of
information. After verification, the image goes through a cleansing process to provide instant
address
verification from the point of collection.

Easy to adapt
into existing
transport and delivery
processes with minimal user intervention,

VERDEX
increases

productivity
whilst

virtually eliminating all address
-
related errors.

“The Australian sector has lon
g struggled with incorrect addresses, spending millions on manually
entering unannounced and unverified items, and correcting mistakes when they occur,” said Tony
Repaci, Managing Director for Intermec Australia and New Zealand.

“When VERDEX is used at the

point of collection, we are able to minimise the number of items
returning to base to be fixed, and cut down the costs along with it.”

Each year the A
ustralian and New Zealand

supply chain

deals with millions of items arriving at their
sortation facilitie
s unannounced and with unverified addresses, many of which ultimately become

u
ndeliverable
as
a
ddressed


(UAA)
, creating billions of dollars in unnecessary expenses.









VERDEX is used at the point of collection to help eliminate UAA parcels and provide
planners with
early visibility to previously unannounced and unverified items. When combined with mobile
computers and mobile label printers, VERDEX enables A
ustralian and New Zealand

logistics workers
to quickly and accurately introduce parcels into the t
rack
-
and
-
trace system and re
-
label them at the
time of collection.
