Bell and Howell Introduces Prepaid DSF2

Wednesday, January 25, 2012

Press release from the issuing company

Bell and Howell, a leader in address quality and document messaging innovations, introduces prepaid DSF2 processing through the Data Services department. Mailers now have the ability to purchase blocks of DSF2 service credits, for faster job submission and easy budgeting. Bell and Howell is one of only 14 companies that are official DSF2 licensed service providers.

DSF2 service appends Walk Sequence information to address records, giving mailers the ability to sort mailpieces in sequential order for each individual carrier route. Providing the USPS® with this data allows mailers to take advantage of associated postage discounts in the form of Walk Sequence Saturation or High Density rates, which can result in significant savings. This service also enhances list data, providing details on addresses such as address type (residential, educational, business, seasonal), mailbox location (curb, door, central) and more.    

As a true DSF2 service licensee, Bell and Howell provides real-time* access to DSF2 processing and Walk Sequence sortation. “Mailers have come to rely on our in-house DSF2 processing as the most efficient way to append Walk Sequence data to their mailings,” says Chris Lien, Bell and Howell president of BCC Solutions. “Not having to rely on a third party service provider to process lists means that Bell and Howell can provide mailers with the fastest turnarounds and most competitive rates for Saturation and Walk Sequence mailings. With the introduction of the prepaid option, taking advantage of DSF2 service is now more efficient than ever. By purchasing credits in bulk, customers can seamlessly integrate that step of the mailing process into their operations. There’s no need to take extra time to make a purchase every time they use it; the credits are ready and waiting for them to submit their data. In a matter of minutes, they’ll be on their way, with enhanced data and potentially sizable savings.”
