Innovative, Secure, Optimized Document Delivery & Payment Processing

PCI ScrubAddress Scrubbing

What’s more important to efficient, cost-effective document delivery than accurate addresses? At PCI Group, our PCI Address Scrubbing technology keeps your mail moving forward while minimizing the high costs associated with undelivered mail. We’ve integrated this proprietary technology into our postal presorting process and in conjunction with our deployment of the U.S. Postal Service’s Intelligent Mail Barcode (IMB). Applying these technologies, your addresses are automatically scrubbed for maximum hygiene and optimum mail delivery. Before any document is mailed, PCI Scrub™ identifies and intercepts inaccurate or incomplete addresses. If there is updated address information, the bad address is replaced with the good address and placed on the outgoing document. You receive notification of the new address electronically so you can update your database for future mailings. Where a correct address cannot be found, PCI rejects the address before printing the letter thereby saving you stationery and postage costs. We provide this information to you in either a hardcopy report or an electronic file which is available to you within hours of file receipt. PCI has processed over 40 million electronic address change records in over three years and over 150 million manual envelopes in the past decade. That’s more than any other document delivery provider. The cost and time savings of our electronic address scrub and change capabilities to our clients have been considerable.
