As a global powerhouse in electronics and electrical engineering, Siemens has always been synonymous with technological excellence, innovation, quality, reliability and internationality. Today, as an integrated technology company, bundling the comprehensive expertise of the entire organization, Siemens is supporting customers in some 190 countries with innovative, made-to--measure solutions from a single source.

Specifically, the Industry Mobility Infrastructure Logistics Business Unit is the world leader in mail processing solutions, including innovations in optical character recognition and postal logistics. The company is represented on all continents with production facilities, sales and service organizations, representatives and service centers.

Of the many projects and products created by the Siemens engineers, the two discussed here are ARTread™ and DPR™.  ARTread is the next generation OCR Reading technology optimized to process mailipece images in order to gather all the details from the envelope face for a wide variety of mailpiece types.  The product uses some of the latest Microsoft technology to produce a configurable and flexible GUI for the user experience.  DPR is a product that is being produced to work in conjunction with other Siemens address readers to enhance the accept rate and lower the error rate of address interpretation.  It performs this through a collection of specialized “agents” that are optimized to process specific components of an address, and then working in conjunction, produce a result with a very high degree of accuracy.

    In submitting my name and business company name which has periods after 4 uppercase letters indicating acronyms for the words God Leads And Directs; it rejects the periods indicating acronyms therefore not allowing me to submit the full and legal name and entity of my business...which got me thinking...hey guys, I'm submitting a comment to i.e. Microsoft Corp. specifically the DPEUSPublicSectorTeam and surely you must program, author, and develop your own design and schematics to your webpages; and you do not allow in a space recognition of a name and or 'Company' name perhaps included in the 'Public Sector Industry" (slight smile here) I would suggest implementing the option to fully let all industries in the public sector access to submit my 2 cents (2 images of President Abraham Lincoln) in it's legal name and title for a precise and accurate description of the entity of industry submitting her opinion to your 'Discussion'. Which happens to be a great and ideal addition to your USPSDPETEAM. The Full Legal Name of My Business is G.L.A.D.

However I am dealing with a major thief and identity theft imposed upon me by others, now I see my business ideas out the in the public sector of industry. I am the only owner and Author-inventor, researcher, 'wisdom' is knowledge correctly applied to bring about real solutions bringing about solid resolutions of truth in its simplest form = 1 cent the least valued by society however it's of the 'most' value and worth the penny 1 cent displays the face of a US President Honest Abe Abraham Lincoln. What do you value more Money or the Truth? I have no employees associated to date to my company. And 1 person--> Author to All of my CPTTS's. (Intelligence Not In An Artificial Way.)
