Tempe, AZ -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/09/2014 -- Melissa Data, a top provider of data quality and address management solutions, has just launched a new Move Update function for its Listware for Excel tool, a data enrichment product that integrates into Microsoft Excel. The Move Update function is the company’s proprietary change of address verification service, which provides users easy access to literally millions of address records in the United States.
The timing for the new Move Update function could not be any better; right now many companies are preparing to send out mailings to their customers and potential clients. Thanks to the easy-to-use Excel add-in, companies will be able to access records that date back more than 10 years, including data on moves that have taken place as recently as 30 days ago. By offering this new service, Melissa Data—which also offers email address verification services—hopes to save companies an often significant amount of money on returned mail.
This new tool is an outstanding option for mailers that are challenged by the licensing costs or volume mailing requirements of the U.S. Post Office’s national change-of-address product called NCOA. As an address verification tool, Listware for Excel is able to search through years’ worth of data from a variety of sources and provides users with the current addresses for both companies and people. As a bonus, no IT experience is needed to use the program.
More than 35 million Americans moved last year; that’s over 11 percent of the population, yet this information is often not updated in individual or small business contact databases,” said Greg Brown, vice president of marketing for Melissa Data.
“Mailing campaigns and even simple holiday mailings for individuals benefit from better data quality, ensuring packages and cards arrive on time at the right address.”
