The Postalytics Mail Address Savings Analysis offers subscription users (Marketer, Pro and Agency) the ability to access a summary level, or a detailed reporting, of their cost savings from suppressing invalid addresses.
How Does the Mail Address Savings Data Work?
Within Postalytics there are three address verification processes that take place: contact import validation, CASS, and NCOA address verification. If an address is found to have an issue during any one of those processes, Postalytics labels it as “invalid" and does not include it in the mailing.
For each campaign, we calculate the cost per piece of mail and multiply that by the contacts that were “invalid” and not sent. This equals the savings per campaign.
Note 1: Although the summary and detailed reports are only available to subscriber (Marketer, Pro and Agency) accounts, the address validation processes mentioned above takes place for all Postalytics account types.
Note 2: The savings calculation begins with all mail sent through your Postalytics account starting on 8/18/2022. Mail that was sent prior to 8/18/2022 is not used in the calculations due to some database restructuring that went into effect on that date.
