Farmingdale, NY (PRWEB) May 6, 2004 -
We are pleased to announce Anchor Computer has been awarded the first *NCOALinkÂ Full Service Provider license issued by the USPSÂ® (United States Postal ServiceÂ®). Using secure data store technology the ÂFull Service ProviderÂ NCOALinkÂ database provides mailers with more change-of-address moves, since it uses 48 months of up-to-date address information, versus the ÂLimited Service ProviderÂ database that provides only 18 months of address information.
National Change of Address (*NCOA) identifies customers who have moved, improving mail deliverability and reducing the cost and time required to forward mail. The existing NCOA program will be replaced by NCOALinkÂ on September 30th 2004. In the interim mailers can process their address files through Anchor using either the existing NCOA program or use the new NCOALinkÂ program.
NCOALinkÂ is the third product introduced by the USPS that allows mailers to realize unprecedented address quality improvement. The first products were DPVÂ (Delivery Point Validation) and DSF2Â (Delivery Sequence File Second Generation). For more information on NCOALinkÂ and our other address hygiene data processing services please visit http://www.AnchorComputer.com.
For resellers and end-users who want to process their change-of-addresses in-house, Anchor SoftwareÂs new USPS certified MaxMoverÂ interface software is available. Resellers can obtain either a Limited Service Provider (18 months) or a Full Service Provider (48 months) license - and use MaxMoverÂ to access encrypted NCOALinkÂ change-of-address information. Organizations that process their own data only can become an End-User licensee that will provide 18 months of change of address data. The current *FASTforwardÂ® Mailing List Correction (MLC) program will no longer be available after September 30th 2005. For more information on our new MaxMoverÂ software, please visit http://www.AnchorComputerSoftware.com .
