The ATS NCOA system is a standalone .Net application which allows for
seamless integration with the NCOA (National Change of Address)
database. The application uses the .NET iMIS
Business Objects to export and read in address changes and updates. In
addition address corrections will be automatically updated and logged in
iMIS. This innovative system is a low-cost
method for iMIS users to update their database
with accurate address information. What is the Move Update Requirement?
The new Move Update requirement that went into effect November 23, 2008
requires addresses on all presorted First-Class Mail® and Standard Mail®
be updated within 95 days before the mailing date with a USPS-approved
method. NCOALink is one of the approved methods for updating addresses.
The update standard applies to each address, not to a specific list or
mailing. While many organizations feel that their mail houses will apply
updates to their lists, this process does NOT subsequently update their
iMIS database. The ATS National Change of
Address NCOA Update Utility for iMIS is a
cutting-edge application that allows the user to easily integrate
changes from the USPS NCOA system with their iMIS customer address data. The application uses the
iMIS Business Objects to ensure accurate, full
updates of address changes, and will trigger change logging during the
import process (if enabled within iMIS). Use
of this utility requires that the organization own the eCustomer module.
System Requirements: • This application includes an installer. It
requires a license to the Customer .NET iMIS
Business Object • This application requires that the .NET 2.0
framework be installed. • This application requires a license to
the NCOA database service through ATS.
