Canada Post’s NCOA updates are great, but they miss a significant portion of movers. More than 40% of movers do not fill out a change-of-address form with Canada Post due to the expense and reduced perceived value of mail. Cleanlist’s Proprietary Change of Address service detects moves not registered with Canada Post and will help you fill in the gaps.
For the best results, we recommend running our Proprietary Change of Address (PCOA) service in conjunction with our Canada Post-certified National Change of Address (NCOA) service. Our testing has shown that update rates improve by as much as 40% compared to Canada Post NCOA alone. Or, for organizations who are unable to comply with Canada Post’s NCOA data licensing restrictions, PCOA may be the only solution you need.
Your result file will contain your original input file with the new, corrected data appended to it. A summary report provides you with statistical data describing your results and a record layout defines field positioning and content.
