Data Hygiene & Enhancement

AccurateLeads is able to provide a number of data cleansing services that ensure your list is as targeted and up to date as possible. All databases are in a constant state of change due to residential moves, business relocations, vacancies, and a number of other extraneous factors. That is why it is highly important to update you records on a regular basis.
Annually there is approximately:

  • 45 million plus residential moves
  • 5 million plus business moves
  • 32 million plus USPS address changes

Do not waste money on invalid and undeliverable addresses. Below are some of the more popular database cleansing and hygiene services we provide.


The NCOALink™ System makes available the current change of address information that can help reduce your undeliverable mail. Addressing errors are identified and corrected before mail enters the mail stream. Mailers use NCOALink™ to save thousands of dollars that would have been spent on wasted materials and postage. In addition, valuable customer names that would have been lost have been updated to receive current and future mailings.

Phone Append/Verification

When you upload your file to us we will match your input records based on Name and Address criteria, to comprehensive Consumer files and provide back, in the output file a current telephone number. Telephone append includes updated area codes on matched records. We will also append a code field telling you which DNC database the client is currently listed in. Please be aware, however, that you will be required to supply a Subscriber Authorization Number (SAN) from the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) and a signed Authorization Form.

The SAN is available by registering at:
The Authorization form is available upon request.

If your organization is exempt from the DNC regulations, you will need to sign and fax a waiver form to us. The waiver form is available upon request.
You or the owner of the data should ensure that your telemarketing efforts conform to all Federal and State DNC legislation.

Reverse Phone Append

Identify your customers and add their names and addresses to your marketing list of phone numbers. By appending consumer addresses you can now follow up with a direct mail message to your list of customer phone numbers.

Data Append

With over 500 demographics and lifestyle elements available for append, you can understand the household income, age, education levels, presence of children and lifestyle characteristics of your customers. Appending demographics, behavioral and mortgage information gives you the clearest picture of who your customers really are and allows you to market to them the proper way.

Walk Sequencing (DSF2)

Use DSF2 to check address accuracy, identify address types, and obtain walk sequence numbers. DSF2 processing also identifies business versus residential addresses, which you can use to obtain the best parcel shipping rates. In addition, DSF2 provides walk sequence codes, which allows ordering of mail pieces in the exact order the mail carrier travels. These codes can be used to qualify for the U.S. Postal Service’s Enhanced Carrier Route (ECR) Basic, High Density, or Saturation postal discounts.

File Suppression

We can take your customer file and upload it into our system, allowing an internal map to remove any of your customers from future mailing lists purchased from us. We can also suppress previous orders so that you are receiving current and unique records each time you order.

Printouts & Labels

We can conveniently provide your list to you in a hard copy printout form. We have several templates available to choose from to fit your needs. We also can print your list on peel and stick labels or send to you in label format.
