Reduces undeliverable mail by providing the most current address information.
Prevents duplicate mail pieces or re-mailings after address corrections are received. Reduces mailer cost!
Locatable Address Conversion System is best known as the 911 conversion process.
This process converts rural route addresses to city style address format. This process is available with NCOA.
The Delivery Sequence File Generation 2 system assists mailers in obtaining accurate delivery address information and facilitates identification of erroneous addresses contained in mailers address files. DSF2 also provides additional information such as type of delivery and LACS information. As mailers use DSF2, it will help to reduce the amount of “undeliverable as addressed” pieces. In turn this will result in more efficient mail processing and delivery operations.
