CASS Certification

Lower Your Postage Bill and Reduce Undeliverable Mail

You can improve the responsiveness of your direct mail campaign by updating your in-house mailing list with CASS Certification/DPV. Just send us your file in any of our accepted output formats and we’ll process it through the Coding Accuracy Support System (sometimes referred to as “Zip+4 appending”). You’ll lower postage costs and reduce undeliverable mail! The USPS requires CASS certification every 6 months to qualify for barcode discounted mailings.

Here is what CASS does:

  • Validates address information at the exact delivery point to determine if mail peice is deliverable
  • Corrects spelling errors in street names, cities and state abbreviations
  • Corrects Zip Code and appends Zip+4 and Delivery Point Barcode data
  • Adds or standardizes directions (North, South, East, West, etc.)
  • Adds or standardizes suffixes (Avenue, Street, Boulevard, etc.)
  • Qualifies mailings for reduced postage rates
  • Reduces undeliverable mail with more accurate addresses
  • Improves duplicate identification
  • Error report identifies potentially undeliverable addresses

LIMITATIONS: Cass certification will not make your list 100% deliverable! It does not verify that the name (or company) associated with your address is correct and therefore deliverable. See NCOA for further options to clean your list.
