Digital transformation is in evidence everywhere we look, and it doesn’t stop at the document and mail processing industry. Increasing time pressure, a variety of enclosure and mail formats or small individual jobs requiring frequent set-up changes are just some of the challenges facing mail production centers. To ensure that you can continue to produce economically and respond flexibly to new requirements in the future, our BOWE IQ software division offers smart, flexible software solutions for modern mailrooms. BOWE IQ has succeeded in bringing the benefits of modern software to the industrial environment with the Orbiter software platform. Complex programming of BOWE systems is a thing of the past. Control production from a central platform with simple to operate and easy to understand apps.
As a mailroom software platform, Orbiter offers a series of apps for the setup and control of inserting systems, card logistics and card mailing systems and sorters, as well as for evaluating production. It lays the foundation for the digital networking of the entire production operation and the preparation of all the relevant information in real time. The creation of simple and easy to understand program interfaces in the form of apps makes the complex simple and intuitive. You can assemble and arrange the individual apps required for any particular workflow, which, crucially, means that you only pay for what you actually need.
Thanks to the clearly understandable interface and the use of graphics to guide the user, the intuitive touchscreen-based Human Machine Interface (HMI) of our mailroom management software ensures a holistic user experience, protects against operating errors and provides early indications of activities to be completed. The control software’s simple, self-explanatory operating concept keeps training requirements low and paves the way for a significant increase in productivity. Furthermore, the software platform allows you to assign individual roles to every user. You determine who sees and can use which functions, with each user only having access to the information that is relevant. Not only does this take usability to an entirely new level, it does the same for security. Another plus is that BOWE systems can be operated and controlled centrally from one point. Your operators will come to prize the transparency and simplicity of our mailroom software’s Human Machine Interfaces.
Productivity and flexibility are not simply a question of speed. It is our intelligent mailroom software applications that really make the overall package of highly capable technologies fly. The BOWE Cockpit app allows our inserting and card mailing to be controlled intuitively and set up easily. Complex programming routines are now a thing of the past. All you need to do is describe the material for processing and the machines are made ready for the production process. At the same time, you lay the foundation for fast, repeatable and automated job changeovers. Setup times are shortened, downtimes minimized and your systems will be put to more efficient use. Even the processing of variable, small batches can be turned into profitable, high-speed production. By networking machines of the same type at site or corporate level, you can achieve measurable productivity improvements – in line with Industry 4.0.
The Orbiter software platform has also brought a new generation of software to letter sorting: BOWE Sort. Sorting runs are prepared in minutes, processes can be monitored and optimized at system and site level. Based on address data, weight, dimensions and time stamp, our sorting app to automatically select the best and cheapest mail service provider for every individual item during the sorting run. This has the added advantage that the data needed to bill the individual customer is generated at the same time. It is hardly necessary to mention that BOWE Sort can be integrated into a higher-level ERP system and allows the definition of individual sorting schemes that match your requirements. For us this is simply what our customers have a right to expect. But were you aware of clever features such as automated returns processing or the automatic sorting of mail in the order of a mail carrier’s route? Discover other smart functions that will improve sorting processes still further and save your employees enormous amounts of time in their daily tasks.
The app BOWE One delivers precise, real-time data covering the entire mail production process – from data preparation to dispatch, across whole systems and sites. This allows all jobs and resources to be monitored precisely and analyzed. A comprehensive system overview, precise operational data and an optimal production projection provide certainty for planning and raise productivity. Shortened reaction times made possible by a system that delivers a continuous stream of information ensure production deadlines are adhered to. The result is the optimal use of resources and a production process that runs profitably. Database-controlled production makes sure that you never miss a thing: seamless item tracking guarantees 100 percent process integrity.

SECURE THANKS TO AUTHORIZATION CONCEPT
All our software solutions are customized to meet individual customer needs. They are also scalable and thus guarantee the greatest possible investment protection. If the conditions in your production change, the software can be flexibly adapted to the new conditions at any time, for example by adding new apps or removing apps that are no longer needed. Your advantage is, that you only pay for what you actually need. A sophisticated hierarchy and authorization concept is a matter of course for us. Our Orbiter software platform allows you to assign individual roles to every user. You determine who sees and can use which functions, with each user only having access to the information that is relevant to him or her. The system operator, for example, only sees the icons that call up the apps that control the machine. He or she cannot access or view any of the other apps. Not only does this take usability to an entirely new level, it does the same for security.
