PCOA — Private Change of Address
When people move and change addresses, not everyone completes and registers this change-of-address with the USPS. Without this registration, the move is not recorded in the NCOALink database, and therefore no forwarding address can be provided.
However, by using Peachtree Data’s PCOA (Private Change of Address) service we can search beyond the boundaries of NCOALink alone.
The PCOA database is compiled from multiple private sources, such as magazine publishers and credit card companies. Often these companies will receive change-of-address notifications that are not reported to the USPS.
This allows you the opportunity to update your database and stay in contact with your customers who might otherwise become undeliverable records on your marketing database.
It is always recommended that you run this in conjunction with NCOALink, rather than as a standalone service. NCOALink is still the best method to capture the most moves and is required in order to meet the USPS Move Update Requirements.
Find change-of-address information beyond the USPS NCOALink file with PCOA.
