COMPANY PROFILE $20 billion dollars a year is wasted on returned mail, according to the USPS® – a number that will only increase as postage rates and penalties for returned mail continue to rise. Staying on top of address changes with address hygiene solutions is the only way to avoid costly fees associated with undeliverable mail caused by Change-of Address (COA) errors.
Melissa Direct, a division of Melissa, can help mailers solve that problem and stay up-to-date with international and domestic address changes in a number of ways. For 30 plus years, Melissa has helped more than 10,000 companies worldwide to stay in touch with customers and prospects, improve deliverability, cut costs and improve ROI with address and other contact data quality solutions.
NCOALink® National Change of Address Processing Melissa, a full service license provider of NCOALink®, will match your list against the full USPS® NCOALink dataset of 160 million moves filed over the last 48 months. The company also offers 24-month processing. Plus, with NCOALink, you’ll meet the USPS Move Update requirement to qualify for First-Class Mail® and Standard Mail® discounts.
Beyond NCOALink® Melissa helps you identify the 40% of movers that do not file a change-of-address notice with the USPS by leveraging mCOA (60 months of 121 million records, multi-sourced) and pCOA (30 years of proprietary information) databases.
