Case Study: A Complex Mailing and Distribution Project for a Non-Profit Organization

Upper/lower casing

Proper casing of names, companies and addresses adds a professional and personal touch. HURT COMPANIES can also create personalized salutations.

CASS certification (Coding Accuracy Support System)

CASS is USPS requirements to maximize presort discounts. CASS increases postage savings and helps with duplication removal.

NCOA, DSF, DPV

HURT COMPANIES can update your addresses with new movers and eliminate undeliverable addresses. DPV takes standard ZIP + 4 encoding an important step further by flagging addresses that dont exist as a valid delivery point.

Merge/purge

Purging duplicate addresses is the next step toward postage and production savings, and not just with exact dupes. Our algorithms can detect near and/or fuzzy matches. HURT COMPANIES can suppress records, append seed lists for a more precise, targeted mailing.

Presort discounts

Presorting a mailing list for first-class or standard rates will result in savings over straight first class mailing. This process includes zip+4 appending, bar coding and/or carrier routing for letters, flats and postcards.

Quality control

At HURT COMPANIES we treat quality control as the final, most important step. After the data cleanup and presort process, we assure our clients that no records were fabricated, erroneously changed, or unjustifiably eliminated.

Printing

HURT COMPANIES can perform custom ink-jet and laser printing including: 4/6-color printing, 1up/3up labels, postcards, brochures, envelopes, letters, reports, variable data printing and more...

Data management

HURT COMPANIES transforms customer data into valuable, structured information by developing, mining and analyzing databases—the key to survival in todays highly competitive environment. Normalization, standardization, data queries and dupe elimination are a few key factors for optimizing a data table into strategic database marketing information.
