help that many news outlets often portray mail as being dead in the wake of digital communication methods. So it’s our responsibility as mailing professionals to ensure that the physical mail stream remains healthy and vibrant, since customer communications strategies rely on it. The 19 companies profiled within this special sponsored annual issue are experts at what they do, so they are willing to help you conquer whatever challenge your mail operation is facing. Whether it’s address cleansing or new equipment for your mail center, these solution providers are some of the most trusted in the industry.

Clear Image Technologies is a company focused on affordable, reliable solutions for the direct mail industry. With over 35 years of experience in direct mail, we understand that each mailer’s needs are different, and that one large, complex system is more than many companies need. Our goal is to provide user-friendly, scalable, inserting alternatives. All our products are modular.

In 2007, we developed the Picture Perfect Match System for companies doing match mailings by hand or hand checking the mailing off the end of their inserter. This visual match system, retrofitted to a customer’s existing inserter, displays images of the mail components on a monitor to allow the operator to visually inspect to ensure match integrity. This provided a low cost, semi automated system to companies with medium volume match mailings.

In 2009, after many customer requests to stop the inserter in the event of a mismatch, we incorporated the ability to upgrade to optical character recognition and barcode recognition. Using the same cameras from the basic system, we could now decode the images to look for names and sequence numbers to match on and data recording of each piece processed.

In 2014 we teamed with Pitcairn Engineering and rewrote that software to employ the .net framework, Tesseract OCR engine, and Sauvola binarization to increase speed up to 300%.

In 2015 we added Read and Print. Using our reading technology, Norwix’s printing software and HP print technology, we can insert, match, and print in one pass.

By partnering with equipment dealers like Tri-State Mailing Equipment in New York, Peak Business Equipment in St. Louis, CSG Automation in Niantic, CT, Mailing Equipment Company in Ft. Worth, Cowart-Gagnon in Seattle, and TLM and associates in Clearwater, we’ve been able to provide sales, service, and support to the US and Canada.

We are constantly in the field, listening to our customers, the salespeople, technicians, and operators that use our products. Have a need not mentioned here? Call us!

Under the direction of its president, founder, and inventor Jim Malatesta, Tritek Systems has been evolving and providing unparalleled and field-proven mail processing solutions since 1984. Following Tritek’s development of the 88-5 Optical Character Reader, numerous US and European patents have been awarded for advanced technologies that make the equipment manufactured by Tritek the best in the industry.

Throughout its history, Tritek Technologies has designed and custom-built machines and software to meet the unique application needs and objectives of our customers. Tritek configures machines to fit small areas when necessary and builds expanded designs to accommodate large-scale sorting operations with multi-tier bins. Tritek also offers portable units customers can wheel about the facility.

Continuous, customer-driven innovation

Tritek is proud of its accomplishments in adaptability. “We work with companies to provide technologies that will enhance the operations they already have in place,” says Jim Malatesta. Tritek offers solutions that process mail items, parcels, and documents using proprietary imaging systems that capture images on one or both sides of the material automatically, in a single pass. The equipment reads address information in any orientation.

One machine for everything

A single machine from Tritek is designed to accurately feed, read, image, time/date stamp, archive, track, digitally email and sort postcards, letters, flats, magazines, postcards, polywrapped materials, and newspapers. One Tritek machine processes all these different types of mail — up to 3/4 of an inch in thickness — simultaneously on the same transport. See for a demonstration video.

Return mail, parcel handling, and customizable sorting rules

Tritek’s return mail processing is an efficient and cost-saving application. It interfaces with a database that automatically updates mailing addresses for delivery.

Tritek’s versatile, small-footprint, high-performance parcel sorter handles all sizes of parcels up to 80 pounds with a sorting capacity of 1024 hampers. Tritek’s imaging system reads all labels and barcodes on parcels omni-directionally and also provides dimensioning. The Ace Workstation offers companies that send or receive parcels and mail items a way to automate labor-intensive processes. This compact unit determines mail or package weight and dimension, looks up addresses, and creates labels with a unique barcode ID for mail delivery tracking.

Tritek’s “Rule Editor Software” is a unique, customized database that enables accurate delivery to a mail recipient’s location automatically. Customers make any adjustments necessary to handle situations such as industry-specific abbreviations and acronyms, relocation of employees, mail forwarding, mail tracking, and email delivery.

Over the last 39 years, Tritek Technologies has solved mail processing challenges for customers in a wide variety of industries. Tritek’s dedicated and experienced field service providers and a talented, innovative group of engineers serve Fortune 100 and 500 companies, government organizations (including vote-by-mail), financial corporations, insurance companies, universities, mail presorters, and facility management companies.

Annually, over 1.2 billion pieces of First-Class Mail® are returned to sender as undeliverable-as-addressed (UAA). It is inevitable and could be a serious detriment to company finances, sustainability, and overall efficiency.

Businesses can alleviate these issues using the United States Postal Service® Secure Destruction option. USPS BlueEarth® Secure Destruction is a no-additional-cost option offered to all ACS™ customers sending out letter- or flat-sized First-Class Mail.

Here’s a quick overview of how Secure Destruction works:

1.First-Class Mail is processed.

2.The UAA mail is labeled, sorted, and individually verified.

3.Verified UAA mail is securely shredded.

4.Shredded UAA mail is recycled.

5.Daily reports of securely destroyed UAA mail are available for businesses.

Undeliverable-as-addressed mail isn’t just an inconvenience. It presents real problems that could be resolved by using Secure Destruction. Here are three benefits of using Secure Destruction for your business:

1.Reduced carbon footprint – Secure Destruction reduces carbon emissions by eliminating the impacts associated with the reverse logistics of return-to-sender mail. It also negates the need for businesses to manage, destroy, and dispose of returned mail.

2.Reduced costs – Manually handling and destroying returned mail requires extra staff, increased hours, investments in proper equipment, and higher energy bills. Some companies hire third-party contractors to deal with UAA First-Class Mail, which are quite expensive. With Secure Destruction, these expenditures can be significantly reduced or eliminated.

3.Reduced privacy risks – Secure and reliable UAA mail piece destruction benefits customers by cutting down touchpoints at which sensitive information is exposed. The shredding is done to a maximum size of 0.24 in. x 1 in. or 6 mm x 25.4 mm, meeting the international standard, further reducing businesses’ liability.
