Group 1 Software Introduces DualCoder Address Quality Software

Press release from the issuing company

LANHAM, Md., March 21 -- Group 1 Software, Inc. a Pitney Bowes Company, today introduced DualCoder(TM), a powerful address quality solution for high-volume mailers. DualCoder(TM) is the only address quality software available in the mailing industry that combines the strength of two industry leading coding tools to produce higher coding results for greater postal discounts and increased delivery of customer communications through the USPS automated handling system. "High volume mailers are constantly challenged with delivering accurate and timely delivery of communications to customers while minimizing costs in mail operations," said Bob Bowen, President of Group 1 Software. "We are pleased to provide mailers with DualCoder(TM), our new, powerful dual-coding system that will help them significantly deliver more mail, reduce returned mail costs and increase their customer contacts." DualCoder(TM) combines the strength of Group 1 Software's two premier CASS Certified(TM) coding solutions -- Finalist and CODE-1 Plus -- with an integration utility that automatically runs both tools. DualCoder(TM) employs a unique, two-step process that enables mailers to produce the highest coding results possible. First, an address file is processed against an identified primary coder of one's choosing. Once this process is completed, any rejected addresses are processed against the secondary coder that is chosen. This dual processing provides additional uplift and increases the coding results of processed addresses. DualCoder(TM) also automatically generates an uplift report identifying the percentage of coding uplift with the combined coders. Available immediately in the United States, DualCoder(TM) quickly and easily integrates and deploys within existing environments. Group 1 Software professional services are available as part of the Company's front-to-back-end address quality solution. Demonstrations of DualCoder(TM) are available at the Pitney Bowes booth #716 at the National Postal Forum, being held in Nashville, TN thru March 23, 2005.
