Mailing Services

You’ve put a lot of resources into developing your direct mail marketing materials. So, when it’s time to mail, you can rely on Allegra to provide fast, accurate, and reliable mail fulfillment. After all, the best direct mail piece is worthless if it doesn’t reach the intended recipient.

Whether your mail consists of postcards, stuffed envelopes, flyers, newsletters, and annual reports, or just about any size and shape dimensional piece, Allegra’s mailing facility can handle it fast and efficiently.

Avoid Wasted Mailing Costs
Bad address data results in wasting money from printing and postage on mail pieces that aren’t delivered or are delivered to the wrong person. Our mailing systems help reduce these wasted costs with CASS Certification, DPV, and NCOA address corrections.

Mail Processing
To present business mail as “bulk mail” in order to obtain the substantial bulk mail discounts, there are significant requirements for the USPS (United States Postal Service) BMEU (Business Mail Entry Unit) to accept the mailing.

All presorted, standard and nonprofit mail must go through a rigorous data validation process before it is presented. This includes CASS Certification, Delivery point validation and move update. At Allegra, our mailing software is integrated directly with the USPS database, allowing us to perform these services on your behalf.

What is CASS Certification?
Coding Accuracy Support System (CASS) is a system that allows us to clean up your data by normalizing it and adding missing information when possible. The system ensures that information in your mailing database is complete. In some cases, it can add missing information like zip codes.

What is Delivery Point Validation?
Delivery point validation or (DPV) allow us to verify if an address is a deliverable by checking it against the USPS database of known addresses.

What is move update?

The move update process allows us to identify people who have moved and update your records to ensure they receive your mail piece. This is done by comparing your list to the National Change of Address (NCOA) database. Anyone who has filed a change of address in the last forty-eight months will then be updated.
