Effective November 23, 2008 the USPS requires all discounted mail (standard mail) meets the Move Update regulations.
To make sure your mail reaches them it is good business to update your address lists now.
More importantly, the USPS is taking undeliverable-as-addressed mail very seriously. When an address is undeliverable, for whatever reason, the entire mail piece is lost. Therefore, departments must consider not only the obvious cost of lost opportunity, but also the entire cost of producing and mailing the piece.
Address updating improves mailings in all categories by helping mailpieces hit their intended targets.
The Move Update standard is a means of reducing the number of mailpieces in your mailing that require forwarding or return from addresses in your file with household/resident-filed "change-of-address" orders received and maintained by the Postal Service. This process is called National Change of Address or NCOA.
Mail Services offers fast turnaround, convenient processing, and affordable rates. There's no easier way to stay compliant, competitive, and cost effective.
