    Data Processing

    A mailing is only as good as its list and in turn the quality of the data. The quality of the address list is critical for the smooth realization of a mailing. We routinely use sophisticated database cleaning methods to improve lists before mailing. Duplicates are recognized and removed using a merge/purge that is second to none. Not only does preliminary data work cut down on waste and "professionalize" the appearance of your mailings, but a refined list also allows you more freedom to manipulate the data. So ultimately you reach your prospects efficiently and professionally.

    Some of the Data Processing Services we offer are proprietary and have been developed over the course of 30 years in business. If you are not sure what services you may need or are new to direct marketing don't hesitate to contact us and we will be happy to walk you through the process without any of the confusing lingo. Below is a partial list of the Data Processing services we offer along with a brief explanation.
