WorksRight Software, Inc. announces the availability of PER/DPV, a new Delivery Point Validation system to improve the accuracy of mail delivery. PER/DPV is based on the U.S Postal Service's DPV (Delivery Point Validation) data set.
PER/DPV is offered as an optional add-on product to WorksRight's popular PER/ZIP4 CASS (Coding Accuracy Support System) software. PER/ZIP4 matches addresses to the national ZIP + 4 Postal database. This matching process allows ZIP Codes, ZIP + 4's, and other mailing information to be verified, corrected, and updated.
Currently PER/ZIP4 and other CASS products match addresses to range records in the ZIP + 4 database. For example, any address between 501 and 599 Cobblestone Court will be given a ZIP + 4 code, whether it is a deliverable address or not.
PER/DPV takes address matching to the next level. After PER/ZIP4 assigns a ZIP + 4 code to an address, PER/DPV can be used to determine that 501 Cobblestone is valid and 511 is not valid for actual delivery of mail.
PER/ZIP4 is used in mailing operations to insure that outgoing mail has accurate ZIP Codes and is free of common mistakes in spelling and format. Use of PER/ZIP4 for CASS certification is part of the process used to qualify for postage discounts.
The combination of PER/ZIP4 and PER/DPV offers mailers an opportunity to further improve mailing accuracy.
PER/ZIP4 includes many standard features for which other vendors charge extra. Batch processing for complete files as well as API's for processing individual addresses are included. Sample code for printing POSTNET bar codes is also included at no extra charge.
Although PER/DPV is intended as a tool for improving mailing efficiency, many companies also benefit from reduced charges from other carriers. Accurate addresses greatly reduce the number of "charge-backs" for invalid address information.
