Uncertain about the future of your mailing services?

June 11, 2019

Recently, Thompson Street Capital Partners, who acquired BCC back in 2017, acquired a few smaller mailing software distributors. For those who used Satori®, which includes products like Bulk Mailer®, Architect, Ignite and Monticello, this can leave you feeling a bit uncertain about your mailing services going forward.

This acquisition has left a lot of companies stressed about how to go forward with their mailing service software.

You may be asking; what will you use? How will you transition? Do you have to switch to BCC — and what will that cost?

At AccuZIP, you should know that unlike BCC, we’re not funded by venture capitalists — distant from the company and its customers, looking only at their bottom line. We pride ourselves on customer service—including always having a live person to answer your calls—with free and unlimited support. We feel these larger companies are losing sight of what’s important and all the while raising prices. That’s why we also offer a unique Price Lock Guarantee. We’ll never raise your price or annual renewal fee if your account remains in good standing.

If you’re thinking of switching your mailing services software company, you’ll save thousands by switching to AccuZIP.

We provide all-in-one postal and mailing software, data cleansing software, mail tracking and reporting.

Someone live will always answer your call!*

First-Class Mail™ isn’t going away—and your business can take advantage of that!

Ask anyone, they’ll tell you digital transactions are replacing First Class Mail (FCM), making the postal service obsolete for your business. But is that true?

Direct mail is still a fantastic way to reach your audience, grab their attention and connect on that personal level that matters to your bottom line. And more and more, you can integrate direct mail with your online marketing strategy so you have a synergistic system where everything works together to build and sustain your brand. Think of how many pieces of mail you've seen recently sporting QR codes, URLs to social media sites, and SMS short codes. Direct mail affords marketers reach, allows more of your information to be communicated than most online advertising efforts, and since everyone loves choice, gives buyers the opportunity to respond to a call to action in the way that they want, on their own time.

There are a few reasons you should use FCM and AccuZIP postal software for your business.

High ROI

You’ll get a lot higher return on mailings than on online display ads. In fact, mailings have a median ROI of 29%; online displays are only 16%.

You can accurately target your audience.

AccuZIP will help you keep your mailing lists up-to-date and accurate so that you’re never missing the right customer or wasting money on postage that going to the wrong address.

Direct mail is trackable.

Depending on how you want your recipients to reach you, you can choose a phone number that’s unique to your direct mail campaign. If you want them to contact you on your website, you can create a unique landing page to track your results.

Your marketing stands out.

It’s true that fewer businesses are sending out mail, but that’s not because it doesn’t work. All you need do is look at the numbers, but it does mean your piece will stand out. It’s like a handwritten letter; you don’t get many anymore, but that only makes it more special when you do.

AccuZIP can help you with all of your mailing services needs, including data cleansing, postal presorting, address printing, tags and reports. Call us!
