2 © 2014 – ipc.be BEFORE YOU START READING… This User Guide is updated regularly, following software updates or users’ proposals. Although unlikely, it may be outdated at the time of consultation. If you have doubts, please contact: The pictures in this User Guide were taken in operations at different moments in time. Some of the pictured hardware corresponds to older versions that are no longer active. However, the function of the hardware and the functionalities of the software are identical from one device to another. All the described processes are therefore presently valid regardless of the hardware they relate to. There is no continuity between the different steps explained on the document. One step can be described by using a given operational example and the next one a slightly modified one (typically the displayed number of units processed with an MRD can vary between one process step and the following one) For any comment, suggestion or question about this User Guide, please contact: 2MRD POD user guide

3 © 2014 – ipc.be REGISTRATION PROCEDURE FOR HANDLERS USING IPC MAIL REGISTRATION DEVICE 3MRD POD user guide Take scanner from cradle Go to the staging area Check the screen for Home Page Next step…

4 © 2014 – ipc.be SCAN ONE RECEPTACLE ID PER CONTAINER 4MRD POD user guide 4 carts in this example: Next step… Note: If you printed a Ticket using the “Ticket” functionality please check Appendix 7 Respect the order : FROM TRACTOR BACKWARDS !

5 © 2014 – ipc.be HANDLER SELECTION 5MRD POD user guide Cradle the scanner back Pick handler name on the touch screen Confirm by pressing YES (click “No” to go back to previous screen) The system will move on to the FLIGHT SELECTION SCREEN (see next slide…)

6 © 2014 – ipc.be FLIGHT REGISTRATION SCREEN - ACCESS 6MRD POD user guide To register the flight reference or carrier code please click on this button. The flight registration screen will then open (see next slide) Here are displayed the units that were delivered, TWO in this example Print button to be used ONLY if the proper association of units to flights has been made. If no association has been made, the button will remain disabled. In case of a delivery of containers with mail from a mix of carriers or of an unknown carrier, and only in that case this screen can be directly used as Association screen. The “Print” button is disabled (no printing possible) until a proper association has taken place (see slide 12)

7 © 2014 – ipc.be FLIGHT REGISTRATION SCREEN - DESCRIPTION 7MRD POD user guide Alphanumeric keypad to be used for the introduction of flight reference Shortcut buttons with most frequently used Carrier references Dynamic flight list. By default shows the 4 most recent flights. As the flight reference is keyed-in the list will be updated (see following slides) Field where willl be displayed the flight reference as it is typed “Unknown” and “Mixed carrier” buttons. Disabled by default.

8 © 2014 – ipc.be FLIGHT REGISTRATION SCREEN – USE (1) 8MRD POD user guide The Handler starts by typing the first letter/number of the carrier code (1) or alternatively one of the shortcut buttons (2). In this example he types on the “S” and the list is automatically updated to display only the flight references starting with an “S” (the shortcut option is therefore disabled) If the flight he is looking for already appears on the list he can directly touch on it to select it (3) and then “OK” (3) (2) (1)

9 © 2014 – ipc.be FLIGHT REGISTRATION SCREEN – USE (2) 9MRD POD user guide The Handler types the second letter/number of the carrier code (1). In this example he types on the “Q” and the list is automatically updated to display only the flight references starting with an “SQ”. If the flight he is looking for already appears on the list the can directly touch on it to select it (2) and then “OK”. Also, if the delivery is of a mix of flights from SQ he should click on “Mixed” (3) and click on “OK”. If he knows the carrier but not the flight he should now click on “Unknown” (4) and then “OK” (2) (1) (3) (4)

10 © 2014 – ipc.be FLIGHT REGISTRATION SCREEN – USE (3) 10MRD POD user guide The Handler types the first number of conveyance reference of the flight (1). In this example he types on the “1” and the list is automatically updated to display only the flight references starting with “SQ 1”. Also the letter keypad is disabled, as no letter can follow a 2 letter carrier code. The options “Unknown” and “Mixed” are also disabled at this stage. If the flight he is looking for already appears on the list the can directly touch on it to select it (2) and then “OK” (1) (2)

11 © 2014 – ipc.be FLIGHT REGISTRATION SCREEN – USE (4) 11MRD POD user guide If the Handler did not find the flight reference to be registered on the flight list he might need to fully type in the complete reference. In the example he typed “SQ12” which is therefore displayed on the text field above. Now the flight reference is registered and he can click on “OK” (1) The system will request a confirmation to add the flight record (as it did not exist in the preloaded flight list). Click “YES” to continue. (1)

12 © 2014 – ipc.be CONTAINER TO FLIGHT ASSOCIATION SCREEN - DESCRIPTION 12MRD POD user guide To add more flight references to the list please click on this button. The flight registration screen will then open (see slides 6 to 11) Flights already selected by using the flight registration screen (see slides 7-11) Number of units handed over by the handler (2 in this example) If the unit contains a mix of flights from different carriers please use this button If the handler does not know the Carrier that transported the mail contained in the unit please use this button Label printing button

13 © 2014 – ipc.be CONTAINER TO FLIGHT ASSOCIATION SCREEN – USE (1) 13MRD POD user guide The handler assigns the flight by first clicking on the flight reference button (1) and then on the corresponding unit button (2) (in this case the SQ 012 is assigned to Unit 1) Note: At this stage the “Print” button is still disabled as the process is not yet complete (1) (2)

14 © 2014 – ipc.be CONTAINER TO FLIGHT ASSOCIATION SCREEN – USE (2) 14MRD POD user guide The handler assigns the flight by first clicking on the flight reference button (1) and then on the corresponding unit button (2)(in this case the UA 1166 is assigned to Unit 2). Once assignment finished the Print Button will be enabled. He clicks on it to launch printing (3) (1) (2) (3)

15 © 2014 – ipc.be CONTAINER TO FLIGHT ASSOCIATION SCREEN – USE (3) 15MRD POD user guide (1) Click on “END” button (1). The printing of labels is triggered by previous step but this step brings the device to its initial screen for next use.

The time-stamp of the delivery, once completed, will be the one of the ticket The ticket that is printed when tapping on the button has a very simple layout: Time of generation of the ticket Barcode encoding the time of generation of the ticket Reminder of instruction on when to scan the barcode
