SEND PLASTIC CARDS TO THE CARD HOLDER SECURELY
Send plastic cards to the card holder with 100% security. Reduce manual changeovers, optimize card sequences and improve the utilization of your card mailing systems with the Watermill card storage and the associated Card Manager control software. The Watermill card storage is a system that stores a large number of personalized or unpersonalized plastic cards from different jobs in no particular order and then uses the customer database to dispense them in the desired sequence. Stored cards can be displayed and managed using Card Manager machine control software.
FULLY AUTOMATIC CARD SORTING
The operator loads the unsorted plastic cards into the Watermill card storage in random order and the software then compares the loaded cards with the customer database, assigns them to the relevant job and places each card in a specified slot within the card storage Watermill until it is required. When a job is run and the corresponding cards are requested for, the database-controlled software ensures the cards are output as they are required for further processing. The major advantage of this is that time-consuming and error-prone manual pre-sorting into individual jobs is no longer required. The software handles everything fully automatically.
BOWE Card Manger also allows cards stored in the Watermill that are intended for the same recipient to be applied to the same carrier document irrespective of card type, thus allowing for massive savings on postage costs.
RESEQUENCING INSTEAD OF DIVERSION
Cards and carriers that do not belong together or that exhibit a fault are usually automatically diverted, but, as an alternative, the Watermill card storage can be used as a card buffer. If a card does not a match with a carrier or if the carrier document is diverted, the software allows the plastic card to be identified and held back by temporarily by storing it in the Watermill module. The software only releases the temporarily stored card for processing once the right document is available.
