United States Postal Service® Awards First NCOALink™ Full Service Provider License to Anchor Computer

Farmingdale, NY (PRWEB) May 6, 2004 -

We are pleased to announce Anchor Computer has been awarded the first *NCOALink™ Full Service Provider license issued by the USPS® (United States Postal Service®). Using secure data store technology the “Full Service Provider” NCOALink™ database provides mailers with more change-of-address moves, since it uses 48 months of up-to-date address information, versus the “Limited Service Provider” database that provides only 18 months of address information.

National Change of Address (*NCOA) identifies customers who have moved, improving mail deliverability and reducing the cost and time required to forward mail. The existing NCOA program will be replaced by NCOALink™ on September 30th 2004. In the interim mailers can process their address files through Anchor using either the existing NCOA program or use the new NCOALink™ program.

NCOALink™ is the third product introduced by the USPS that allows mailers to realize unprecedented address quality improvement. The first products were DPV™ (Delivery Point Validation) and DSF2™ (Delivery Sequence File Second Generation). For more information on NCOALink™ and our other address hygiene data processing services please visit

For resellers and end-users who want to process their change-of-addresses in-house, Anchor Software’s new USPS certified MaxMover™ interface software is available. Resellers can obtain either a Limited Service Provider (18 months) or a Full Service Provider (48 months) license - and use MaxMover™ to access encrypted NCOALink™ change-of-address information. Organizations that process their own data only can become an End-User licensee that will provide 18 months of change of address data. The current *FASTforward® Mailing List Correction (MLC) program will no longer be available after September 30th 2005. For more information on our new MaxMover™ software, please visit .
