    Mail-piece integrity simultaneously maximizes efficiency and adds a critical layer of security to ensure that the right documents are sent to the right person.

    What is mail piece integrity?

    Mail piece integrity is what we call the process of making the inserter “intelligent” through the use of barcoding. The inserter’s Scanner or Camera reads the barcode that gives the inserter instructions on what to do with each page. The barcode instructions are things like, “This is page 1 of a 1-page document, so fold and insert it into an envelope,” or “this is page 1 of 3 pages,” so the inserter knows to feed and fold the 3-page document together and insert all 3 pages.

    Why does it matter?

    Whether every document is a single page or the number of pages vary, mail piece integrity helps organizations avoid the consequences of sending a recipient someone else’s document. Consequences can include litigation, fines, negative brand impact, or a lost customer.

    When documents vary in page-count, barcoding eliminates the need to sort pages. Barcoding tells the inserter automatically how many pages it should feed for any particular recipient’s document.
