Saudi Post selects Intermec’s mobile computers and RFID readers

Integrated GPS system to provide postal workers with turn-by-turn voice navigation

By CBR Staff Writer

Saudi Post has awarded Intermec Technologies a contract to equip its postal delivery team with CN3 mobile computers and add-on IP30 handheld radio-frequency identification readers.

Saudi Post’s complete system for mail delivery, which integrates many of its systems including its CRM and sorting machines, has been implemented to make the dispatch process for postal workers more efficient. The system also incorporates navigation and automatic vehicle location applications.

According to Intermec, the CN3, with up to four integrated radios including GPS, will enable Saudi Post to stay connected with its postal workers through voice and high-speed data in real time, no matter where the workers are located.

The integrated GPS system provides postal workers with hands-free, turn-by-turn voice navigation, making driving safer and more efficient. The versatility of the CN3/IP30 system provides radio-frequency identification (RFID) read-write capability in a single device.

Saudi Post is planning to extend its Intermec CN3/IP30 system to more client services in the future, including potentially empowering workers to process customer payments.

Patrick J. Byrne, President & CEO of Intermec, said: Intermec continues to increase its footprint with major postal organizations. We are delighted to have been selected by Saudi Post to help them increase customer satisfaction, transform their operations and reduce costs in a challenging economic environment.”
