Mailsort Services

At Pack-IT Hereford we are pleased to help you in achieving best cost effectiveness for your direct mail. Mailsort is the name given to a range of discounted postal services offered by via the Royal Mail to its clients that produce large volumes of mail for delivery in the UK.

Mailsort brings you two benefits:

It is vital for anyone that posts in volume, whether via Mailsort or standard post, to ensure that the image of their company or organisation is enhanced and seen in the best possible light.

In a recent survey of direct mail recipients¹, eighty five percent agreed that "inaccuracies in the name and address reflect badly on the image of the company" - potential customers will have already formed a negative opinion even before they have opened the envelope.

This is why good address management is essential for any company that communicates directly with customers or prospects - whether they are sending a bill, fulfilling orders or information requests, or approaching new prospects, via direct mail.

The use of the postcode and the attainment of the required 90% level of postcoding for Mailsort may initially seem a chore. However, as more and more companies recognise the advantages of direct mail, the costs of poor address data are increasing substantially.

We are able to prepare and deliver good address management and ensure that all elements of your addresses, from individual names through to the postcode, are as accurate as possible.

Our address cleaning software uses many address features as defined by the Royal Mail. An additional benefit is that the software also has the advantage of holding the complete Postal Address File.

Deduplication of Address Records is carried out using in-house software. The system matches individual records using postcode elements from the Postal Address file, such as surname, initials, street names and postal towns.
