Question: What benefit does an undeliverable direct mail piece have to your company? Answer: None. Every direct mail piece, regardless of class, has two things in common: the intended recipient and the address. When both are accurate and complete, the mail piece can be delivered quickly and easily to anywhere in the world from Boise, Caldwell, Meridian, Nampa or to any Treasure Valley business location.
If either the recipient has moved or the address is incorrect or missing an important addressing element, then the mail piece could become undeliverable-as-addressed (UAA) mail. This wastes your time, effort, and costs your company money. AutoSort is committed to making sure our clients’ direct mail, advertising mail, medical billing, invoice or statements are delivered accurately and efficiently. No one technique provides a 100% solution, but by processing your mail through our systems we can minimize your undelivered mail along with providing electronic files to update your data.
- Address Standardization: Adding ZIP+4 coding and proper spelling to addresses.
- Delivery Point Validation (DPV): This insures that there is an actual, physical mail box for that address.
- National Change of Address Link (NCOAlink): To update addresses for those addressees who have moved and filed a change of address card at the Post Office.
