India, March 12 -- AccuZIP, a national software company providing solutions to the mailing industry to streamline data management and the multi-channel communications process, has announced that it will provide end of life options for SAP Postalsoft customers faced with their ACE, DataRightIQ or Match/Consolidate products being end-of-life on 31 March 2015.
With the end-of-life announcement, SAP Postalsoft customers will need to make a decision as to which data quality platform they want to use going forward for address verification and data cleansing.
Steve Belmonte, President and CEO of AccuZIP, believes the experience already helping a number of Postalsoft Presort software customers transition to AccuZIP will be well received by those customers looking for a new data quality platform.
Firstlogic's Postalsoft, for example, has three basic modules that allow you to do everything from address correction and encoding to presorting and Label design and printing.
The data is used within Firstlogic's i.d.Centric data quality suite and its Postalsoft print and mail solutions for a greater level of addressing functionality.
The company's Postalsoft brand provides postal automation, mail preparation, and document generation software and services that make print and mail operations more effective and profitable.
Tools that are available to assist with basic data clean up include products from Group 1, Trillium, and PostalSoft.
The desired recipients are selected from a database of vendors and exported as a .DBF file for address correction and presorting by Postalsoft, a specialized application that creates its own .MDF file, with corrected, pre-sorted addresses.
Both Group 1 Software and PostalSoft are hard at work on international versions of their software.
New software such as PostalSoft enabled the Bee to achieve matches between customer lists and its own database that previously had been impossible, he added.
My undying thanks for helping to decipher the gobbledygook of postalese to the following (in alphabetical order): Lorie Bush-Zibell and Bob Schimek of Postalsoft; Gene Del Polito, AMMA; Brian Denneny of the Philadelphia Post Office; Lee Epstein, Mailmen, Inc.
So, for example, when Postalsoft software is used, the lists are automatically CASS- and PAVE-certified.
