You just need to know where to look, how to gather the right information and understand how regulations and data management can help.

NCOALink — Finding The Right Vendor At The Right Price

Mailers need to have their addresses run through the National Change of Address database and that usually means using an outside vendor that is an NCOALink licensee. Too often, the selection process of the vendor is a quick decision without comparing costs. And issues like data security and customer data protection are not considered, especially with processing done over the internet. This course details current USPS-approved licensees and outlines steps every mailer should take before utilizing the services.
