Firstlogic offers Mover I.D. option to organizations using
LA CROSSE, Wis., March 28, 2005 Firstlogic, Inc., a global provider of commercial mail and information quality software solutions, announced today that its Mover I.D. option is available to organizations that have licensed the companys Postalsoft Business Edition mailing software system.
This option is available for licensing immediately for mailers seeking United States Postal Service® (USPS®) end-user or limited service provider certification for the NCOALink program. For certified organizations, Mover I.D. provides a direct link to USPS change-of-address data for the preceding 18 months. With this new capability, mailers and service providers can perform both address cleansing and Move Update processing in a single pass.
Postalsoft Business Edition clients also have the option of using an existing electronic file exchange to Lorton Data, a full-service NCOALink licensee, for change-of-address processing. Lorton Data, which uses the Mover I.D. option in Firstlogics Postalsoft® Professional Edition software, has access to USPS change-of-address information for the most recent 48 months.
We are very pleased to be partnering with Lorton Data. Besides being a well-respected provider of database services, Lorton Data was the first licensee since 1991 to receive a full-service license from the USPS for the National Change of Address program. says Chris Lien, Firstlogics commercial mail market director.
Approximately 40 million Americans move each year, or roughly 17% of all deliverable addresses. The NCOALink program gives commercial mailers and list owners a streamlined, automated way to make sure their mailing lists reflect the latest change-of-address information. It is also one of the ways mailers can satisfy the First Class automation mail requirements for Move Update processing.
Mailers must also consider how undeliverable as addressed (UAA) mail affects their own bottom line, as a consequence of wasted production and postage costs, says Pam Corbeille-Lepel from Lorton Data. If you have a list of 50,000 addresses and each mail piece costs 50 cents for production and postage, a 25% undeliverable rate which is not uncommon will result in a loss of $6,250. Even worse, this may be repeated many times during the course of a year. By leveraging the NCOALink technology, you can improve your overall mail deliverability and keep UAA costs down.
