Furthermore, any new system that streamlines the communication and exchange of information between both parties in the list rental process is of value to the entire list marketing industry.

Leading Worldwide Data Quality and Enhancement Services Provider Data Services, Inc. has announced that it has completed its linkup with the new NextMark Select Service for enhanced Data Card Functionality. Data Services' list marketing clients will now have the option to employ the increased data card utilities, including giving list rental prospects the ability to submit a count request directly from the data card, provided by NextMark's new High-Definition (HD) Data Card functionality.

"Getting your data card noticed by list brokers and other rental prospects is critical for every list manager," says Jerry Messer, President/CEO of Data Services, Inc. "Furthermore, any new system that streamlines the communication and exchange of information between both parties in the list rental process is of value to the entire list marketing industry." This "streamlined" process comes with NextMark Select's innovative addition of list count requests from the data card itself. In addition, the HD Datacards allow brokers and mailers instant access to detailed mailing list profile information, saving clicks, time and frustration.

In the past, for many list professionals, lack of automated counts on the data card meant a series of phone calls, emails and delays as list brokers, managers and service providers went back and forth getting the latest counts and other list profile information. List owners and managers housing their files/databases with Data Services, Inc. will now have the option to link their data with the associated data card and fully realize the competitive advantage provided by the new HD Data Card functionality.

"Data Services continues to innovate in order to advance the interest of our clients..." Messer commented, "...and being one of the first service providers to deliver the new capabilities afforded by NextMark Select's HD Data Cards is another example of this commitment." Data Services utilizes the same proprietary count engine behind its List Express (LEX) System for online list counts, selections, and rental fulfillment to ensure counts are delivered to the appropriate list manager in a matter of seconds after they are requested by brokers on NextMark.

Messer noted, "The speed at which our List Count technology is able to provide accurate counts is of paramount importance to list marketers looking to make full use of the new NextMark system." Clients utilizing Data Services' LEX System have long enjoyed 24/7 online access to their managed data, the ability to run counts in a matter of seconds, the ability to ship list rental orders, and the freedom to do all this directly from any desktop. Applying Data Services' list count technology to extend the count request capability to the rental prospect, while still allowing the list manager/owner the ability to approve the count request and include additional/alternative recommendations in his/her response, enables the process of renting a marketing list to take place more efficiently than previously possible.

NextMark is impressed by Data Services' implementation of NextMark Select.

"Data Services did a great job in implementing NextMark Select and establishing the electronic bridge between NextMark's data cards and the mailing lists they host," commented Joseph Pych, President, NextMark, Inc. "They are one of the first to deliver these advanced tools that are highly sought after by list brokers. Data Services' linkup to NextMark Select gives their clients a big advantage in reaching list brokers in this highly competitive marketplace."

High-definition data cards are currently available to NextMark list research subscribers for no additional fee. A video presentation of the new technology is available online at
