RAF Technology is a global leader in pattern recognition offering a broad portfolio of software products from high speed fixed camera systems used for parcel and letter mail processing to mobile computer and smartphone enterprise applications used for cargo container chain of custody tracking and license plate recognition. With over 20 years of experience in image-based symbology, RAF Technology has developed the most advanced optical character recognition products used worldwide for extracting data from a variety of fonts and different styles for printed character sets as well as intelligent character recognition for handwriting. Our software supports a wide variety of applications and is primarily deployed in the logistics, transportation and security sectors.
But capturing data is only half of RAF’s success story. What truly makes us unique in the industry is our ability to verify data once it has been captured. Our patented data search engine which we call Smart Match ™ not only provides the highest read rates available today, but also offers the lowest error rates or “false Positives”. This is extremely important for enterprises since extracting mission critical data accurately as early as possible in their supply chain provides a huge cost savings and benefit to their bottom line. Because RAF’s unique pattern recognition technology is so tightly integrated with our data verification search engine many fortune 500 businesses and government entities have integrated our software solutions to resolve their most esoteric challenges.
RAF has been granted over 25 US patents and has several patents pending in the areas of image-based symbology recognition, database security, high speed weighing, item identification, and image authentication used for digitally fingerprinting high monetary value printed objects such as tax stamps.
RAF is headquartered in Redmond, Washington and was founded in 1989. Our current customers include the United States Postal Service, UPS, DHL, Australia Post, PEMCO Insurance, Pitney Bowes, Motorola Solutions, Honeywell, Datalogic, and numerous other enterprises businesses throughout the world.
