Undeliverable Mail Management

Regardless of address cleansing, EVERY mailing has a percentage of addresses that are undeliverable. Instead of undeliverable mail being returned to you and/or your outlying locations, we set the return address as AIS. Instead of your staff having to handle trays/tubs of mail, we perform all the handling/scanning/keying, creating a simple data file that is sent to you for updating your client database. This process not only significantly saves you in people/time/resources, but provides you with important information in a timely manner to prevent sending out these bad addresses on future mailings. As this is all provided for less than the cost of a postage stamp, the service pays for itself.

Data Cleansing / Management Services (Five services AIS provides to improve data quality):

1. Correct & Standardize Addresses - Improve the deliverability of your mailings, earn postal discounts and ensure efficient postal processing by verifying and standardizing addresses and adding ZIP + 4 and postal codes with CASS processing.

2. Move Update of Your Mailing Lists - Your house file deteriorates approximately 15 percent annually because over 40 million American families, individuals, and businesses pick up and move each year. National Change of Address (NCOA) processing matches your list against a dataset of permanent change-of-address records filed with the USPS over the last 48 months.

3. Track Unregistered Movers – There are approximately 40% of movers that don't file a change-of-address with the USPS? We use multi-source change-of-address processing to find them, a database of 121 million change-of-address records from sources such as magazine publishers, banks and credit card companies, mail-order forms, and various other sources.

4. Eliminate Uninterested or Unavailable Recipients - Lower production and postage costs with suppression services. Cease mailing to the Direct Marketing Association's (DMA) advertising mail opt-out list, deceased individuals, and people incarcerated in correctional facilities.

5. Undeliverable Mail Management - Regardless of address cleansing, every mailing has a percentage of undeliverable addresses. Instead of your staff having to handle trays or tubs of return mail, undeliverable mail is routed directly to our AIS Mail Handling Facility for scanning/keying, creating a simple data file that is sent back to you for updating your internal database. This process not only significantly saves you in people/time/resources, but provides you with important information in a timely manner to prevent future bad mailings. Thus, the service pays for itself.
