Norway Post Selects Syslore Address Recognition System


mCorrection software significantly streamlines the optical character recognition (OCR) based automated mail sorting process and decreases the proportion of manual work and the amount of mail delivered to incorrect
addresses. mCorrection builds on artificial intelligence and fuzzy search algorithms, which are used to match
and correct incomplete, inaccurate and incorrect address, name and recipient information more efficiently
and accurately than ever before. In addition to increasing the read rates, mCorrection is designed to
maximize the sorting depth. Recognition to the deepest delivery point level allows more mail to be sorted to
the exact door-to-door sequence.

All of Norwayʼs postal traffic will run through the system and the system will be used in all of Norway Postʼs
sorting centres. A new South-Eastern Norway sorting center for letters opens at Robsrud outside Oslo in
2010. mCorrection system will operate as a centralized system, which will be integrated to both the old and
new sorting centresʼ address recognition systems. The project will start this year and it is estimated that it will
continue up to year 2011.

Syslore's Quality Tool software is also part of the delivery. Quality Tool is a web based monitoring, measuring
and comparison tool for postal address recognition. The tool enables postal operators to monitor and
compare address recognition performance and to analyze bottlenecks, development areas and quality
problems in their recognition process.

Norway Post comments: “Our goal is to further automate our mail sorting process and to minimize the
amount of letters which must be video coded. Norway Post is happy to choose Syslore for this multiyear
project. We look forward to a successful co-operation with Syslore.”

'This contract is significant for Syslore', says Syslore CEO, Henri Tykkä. 'We are really happy to be able to
start long-term collaboration with Norway Post. In the present financial situation, companies only invest in
software and systems that return real value added and cost savings. In addition to the general financial
situation, the postal field is facing big challenges as letter volumes decrease, electronic communication
methods become more widespread and the competition in the postal business tightens up. Thus, this
contract manifests the significant cost savings that our software will bring about and the added value created
by the innovative solutions that we have developed. We have developed solutions for postal services for
several years and now we can also leverage on this experience in our co-operation with Norway Post'.
