Records matching to the USPS National Change of Address database are returned with the new address, identified as an individual, family or business move and move date provided. Use of the USPS NCOA process helps to ensure the mail piece is delivered to the targeted customer. An average of 20% of the population moves annually.
Merge Purge System
Record linking and duplicate identification is customized to a client’s set of business rules. Records are linked using traditional name address as well as a key numeric link, such as Phone, Account Number, etc. This allows our clients to test and validate any combination of linking rules to create potential duplicate groups for consolidation. The number of identified duplicate sets are maximized, while minimizing the number of unmatched records. Using Postal Soft de-dupe software with customized client record linking rules, results in a clean consolidated file, and enhances the effectiveness of all mail campaigns.

Modeling scoring, Segmenting, Keycoding, and Mail File Creation

The mail file is created with name, address, and segmentation codes. Scoring model can be applied. A history file is created so it can be matched back to the future response file.
