I have good news for all our customers who would like to identify residential addresses in their mailing lists or customer management systems.
Recent changes to the USPS® RDI™ data set license requirements have made it possible for Satori Software to offer the service to our customers directly — at a lower total cost! With our improved RDI add-on, you can process lists against the RDI data set to mark residential addresses without going through the expense and hassle of licensing and obtaining the data sets from USPS.
The first requirement for Full-Service is unique barcodes. Every mail piece, tray, sack or large container has a barcode. There are three barcode types: the Intelligent Mail® piece barcode (IMb™), the Intelligent Mail tray barcode (IMtb, also used on sacks) and the Intelligent Mail container barcode (IMcb). The IMcb is used on large containers like pallets, hampers, rolling stock and APCs. Each of these new barcodes has a field called the Serial Number. This field must be unique across all your mailings for a minimum of 45 days.
