NCOALink® processing in the U.S. Melissa Data’s NCOA services reduce
the cost of undeliverable mail and improve campaign effectiveness by enabling successful

and data processors manage a deluge of constantly-changing address data – about
43 million individuals, families, and businesses move annually in the U.S.
alone. International NCOA processing extends our capabilities and adds global impact
in meeting this challenge, helping customers optimize mailing strategies to
reduce costs, and eliminate undeliverable mail worldwide,” said Greg Brown,
vice president of marketing, Melissa Data.

Data is an NCOALink Full Service Provider licensee of the
USPS. Unlike limited licensees, the
company can match your list against the full USPS NCOALink dataset
of approximately 160 million records, which includes all permanent
change-of-address records filed with the USPS over the last 48 months.
NCOA-verified mail allows mailers to
receive bulk discounts, minimizing undeliverable-as-addressed (UAA) mail and
its corresponding processing requirements.

addition, NCOA guidelines help mailers meet stringent data quality regulations
specific to their region, for example, Canada’s in-country processing
requirements designed to protect privacy of its citizens and increase
accountability of data handlers. Melissa Data is one of only a handful of
vendors licensed by Canada Post® to provide Canadian NCOA processing,
matching data against 10+ million change-of-address records filed by Canadian
households and businesses within the last 72 months.

company’s cloud-based NCOA solutions ensure fast, safe, secure processing,
supporting high-volume mailers with more than one million records per hour. Both
U.S. and Canadian NCOA services are available by sending files via email to
Melissa Data’s service bureau, or by setting up
fully-automated NCOA workflows via FTP (File Transfer Protocol) technology. Click
