Address Data Management

FlexMail™ can link to external databases and manipulate data from any industry standard data format, including Access, dBase, Excel, XML, delimited/fixed-length text, and any OBDC compliant database.

FlexMail™ can sort and filter your database according to your needs, and save your queries for future use.

FlexMail™ also can connect to multiple data sources simultaneously for supplementary lookups and suppression lists.

Cleansing Data

With the optional USPS add-on module, FlexMail™ will run USPS CASS and NCOA processes to correct and standardize addresses and update your lists with NCOA move updates.

Certified Presort Discount

The USPS module also sorts and prepares your address lists for the lowest possible automation rates, plus uploading all the USPS paperwork required by the USPS.
