If PostalOne! rejects a mailing, or if you are notified of an error, or still worse, if your Mailer Scorecard reflects assessable errors, corrective action necessary can be painstaking to resolve the problem(s). And, adding another level of pain to the process, the mailer must cancel the statement, change or populate the correct matching Permit or NPA and resubmit. This is extremely inefficient. With the DAT-PreCheck solution, you can remove all the headaches – again - before you ever go into production or submit that file to PostalOne!
Make sure the following are correct:
DAT-PreCheck displays and validates the Mailer Identification numbers (MIDs) and Customer Registration Identification numbers (CRIDs) of the Mail Owners and Mail Service Providers identified in a Mail.dat® file. Additionally, DAT-PreCheck validates the Nonprofit Authorization Numbers (NPAs) for any mailing claiming nonprofit pricing. It also provides information outlining the Service Type Identifiers (STIDs) populated in the Mail.dat file and validates the Labeling List file dates that were used during the presort process. The newest addition to this great validation tool is the ability to detect duplicate Intelligent Mail barcodes (IMbs).
DAT-PreCheck warns of By/For conflicts and show mailers what the “primary” mail owner identifier was based on a list of processing priorities. It can also show mailers any conflicts with the STIDs being used, outdated Labeling List data, and duplicated IMbs so corrective action can be taken before going into mail production or uploading the Mail.dat files to PostalOne!
