On 21st April 2010, SOLYSTIC celebrated the installation of their 1,000th MARS machine in the Mail Processing Facility at Thonon-les-Bains (France). The MARS carrier route sequencing machine, has become the worldwide standard in its category, due to its performance levels, its reliability and simplicity of use.

Thanks to its small footprint, MARS can be installed in branch offices. Its competitive and attractive purchase cost assures a rapid return on investment.

By the Spring of 2010, more than 1,400 MARS machine have been sold. Each new series has benefited from improvements, whether it is performance, ergonomics or noise levels. Its 'single level' design means that MARS is widely recognised as being the most ergonomically designed machine available. Very little training is required for an operator to take control of a MARS machine.

SOLYSTIC can produce MARS at a rate of 9 units per week. The on-site installation process then takes a further two days.

The MARS machine was designed to meet the requirements of sustainable development: the low noise level (65 dB) contributes significantly to the working conditions of its operators. The component parts of the MARS have been selected to meet ROHS requirements.

Numerous additional services are proposed with the MARS: The 'Service Desk' lets users monitor service requests or technical support operations. Web-based training programmes (e-learning) can be used to prepare or refresh operators and maintainers knowledge.

The consistent use of MARS worldwide over the last ten years is living proof of its efficiency and reliability. This exceptional MARS contributes to reduce distribution costs, estimated at 50% of the total cost of processing a letter.

The MARS has made its mark in the long history of improvements to postal sorting.
