The recent opening of Austrian Post’s newest parcel center in Thalgau is, the operator says, the culmination of its long partnership with supplier Prime Vision, which has seen the computer vision specialist’s software solution for automated parcel sorting installed across multiple sites. Indeed, Thalgau is the operator’s 10th hub to adopt Prime Vision’s OCR, video coding and image archiving solution.
Although this represents a relatively standard combination for Prime Vision, the company states that what makes this project stand out from the crowd is its scalability. Having initially proved its effectiveness at Austrian Post’s sorting center in Vienna, the solution has been systematically rolled out nationwide.
“Austrian Post was one of our very first customers and, over the years, we have built a very close relationship based on mutual trust and cooperation,” explained Prime Vision’s account director, Alexandra Ballestrem. “The flexibility of our concept makes it especially easy for us to add more sorting centers to the solution. It’s a great example of why open architecture systems are so important to dynamic postal operations. They allow easy and cost-effective upgrade and expansion.”
Thalgau is now fully live and operating as successfully as its forerunners. Prime Vision has confirmed that its software blueprint will continue to be at the heart of further hub transitions planned by Austrian Post in 2021/2022.
