Step 1: CASS/DPV Validation / NCOALink
Our software communicates in real-time with the USPS Move Update service with 100% data security to process lists against 18-month NCOA data. (National Change of Address) EZ24x7 software then checks the CASS/DPVaddress against a list of known “registered” movers. Registered movers are those who have filled out a change of address card or submitted a change of address online. NCOALink processing runs at over 100,000 records per minute. NCOALink processing is integrated into the CASS/DPV validation processed directly from your PC. EZ24x7 does not require FTP upload and download processing your list in a few minutes. LACSLink®, eLOT® and RDI™ services are inexpensive add-on options to the NCOALink service.
Step 2: Enhance Address Look Up and Correction
Correcting input addresses prior to mailing is crucial to your business’s success. This helps reduce the undeliverable mail pieces before mail enters the mail stream and reduces undeliverable mail. The painter service helps find any deliverable U.S. postal address from the more than 150 million USPS delivery points while minimizing keystrokes by applying city lookup, ZIP Code™ lookup and delivery address lookup clues. Verifies, corrects, and standardizes the addresses in your database using the USPS National Database file. It also appends current ZIP+4™, Carrier Route and Delivery Point Codes. After your records are updated, they are standardized to meet USPS Coding Accuracy Support System (CASS) standards and a CASS Certificate (Form 3553) is produced
Address verification helps to ensure that your mail pieces will be delivered by the post office. If during the matching process any addresses are found to undeliverable record. However be out of range, an error will be returned to flag the address as a potentially, no records are deleted from your database. The Enhance service overwrites data in the Address field to meet abbreviation standards set by the USPS (i.e. ST for Street, N for North, etc.) and allows you to correct minor spelling errors.
Step 3: Postal Presort
Presort Accuracy and Validation Evaluation (PAVE) is used by mailers to take advantage of the tremendous postage discounts offered by the USPS for presorting all classes of mail: First Class, Periodicals, Standard Mail, and Package Service; and for all types of mail: letters, flats and parcels. Using software to presort your mail allows significant savings on postage and time-and labor-saving features enabling fast job turnarounds! From the NCOALink processed address list, presort the list into tray or sack order. Presorting the list generates required USPS Qualification Report, bar-coded tray or sack labels and required Postage Summary calculating and reporting the actual postage due. When you come to EZ24x7 for presort processing, you can expect competitive pricing, expert technology, and knowledgeable, friendly technical support.
