Description

The ANKLink will allow mailers to make informed decisions regarding a specific customer. If the data indicates the customer has moved, the mailer may choose to suppress the customer from the list. Otherwise the mailer could attempt to determine the new address by seeking the services of an NCOALink Full Service Provider licensee. ANKLink has the potential to reduce the production of UAA (Undeliverable as Addressed) mail, which reduces production, preparation and postage costs.

ANKLink data will not return the new address but will inform mailers of customer moves that occurred in months 19-48, along with the move effective date. Development, distribution and use are all covered under the existing NCOALink licenses.

Annual License Fee (ANKLink only): $4,150.00 (LSP) $915.00 (EUM).

What’s next?

ANKLink certification is covered under the NCOALink Developer testing. Limited Service Provider and End User Mailer licensees who wish to obtain the ANKLink  Product will need to contact their NCOALink Distributor.
