It's a no-brainer. But how's it possible?
When you use SummonsDirect, you qualify for Automated First Class Pre-sort postage -- typically $0.35 per piece. If you're not using SummonsDirect, you're probably paying closer to $0.44 per piece.
When you use SummonsDirect your jury questionnaire and/or summons data is automatically run against the National Change of Address registry (NCOA) in real time at regular intervals (daily, weekly, or monthly depending on volume and desired run frequency). If you're printing and mailing in-house and your juror questionnaire or summons data is not run against the National Change of Address Registry (NCOA) at least every 90 days, the USPS may charge you an additional $0.07 per piece postage.
SummonsDirect employs integrated logic to analyze the NCOA return codes for juror eligibility and deliverability before questionnaire or summons documents are produced. This means that you only incur production costs for jurors who are eligible to serve and whose address is deliverable. Mailing services that use Fast Forward don't do this!!!!! They produce the document and simply forward it, whether the juror is eligilble to serve or not.
With SummonsDirect your documents are CASS certified for more accurate document delivery. CASS is a system which improves the accuracy of carrier route, adds or updates five-digit zip codes and zip +4, and adds delivery point codes that appear on each document.
Updated juror address and eligibility data is automatically delivered back to the JMS. So, your jury source list is always up to date and accurate.
USPS trucks reside in our facility. With SummonsDirect your documents are guaranteed to hit the mail stream within 48 hours of your scheduled run.
