In logistics, it is important to recognize every label of a parcel entering a warehouse or sorting center. This is often done automatically by OCR (Optical Character Recognition) readers. If OCR cannot read the label, it is automatically sent to a video coding platform where people correct or add the data and immediately feed it back to the sorting system.
With Smart Coding as a Service, you get all the benefits of Smart Coding video coding, without having to purchase the entire system. With this service, a coding performance of the highest level is offered at a competitive price per item coded and according to pre-agreed performance.
