Strategic Planning combines a wide variety of data processing services
and years of experience to provide you with the ability to get the most
from your files. Experienced data processing professionals will work with
you to help you choose the right course of action to take. By utilizing
the vast resources and expertise we have amassed through the years, we
can make your database marketing or mailing program successful.
We can build a file from various input sources such as hard copy for
data entry, magnetic
tape, cartridge, floppy disk or modem transfer. Our experience in building
and enhancing the data on your files is a trademark of Strategic Planning
and we can help you lay out your needs to get maximum use of your database
for your marketing efforts.
After we build your file, we can update it at your convenience (usually
monthly, quarterly) by processing adds, deletes and changes, updating
history and donor information and providing reports to track your
activity. We'll work with you in an effort to design and implement
whatever data you want to maintain for your file.
We'll reformat your file to our standard layout and provide you
with the following options to use in processing your data: Name
parsing, fixed fielding, upper/lower case, city/state/zip parsing,
address standardization, zip code correction, file clean up, state
verification, gender coding, ethnic coding, phone appending and
We can process one or more lists at a time and determine the elimination
of duplicate names which gives you the ability to ensure the deliverability
of only one piece of mail to a consumer or business location. This will
help you avoid spending extra money on postage and keep the postal patron
from being inundated with duplicate mail.
By providing you with the latest postal enhancements, we can ensure that
your mail gets processed in the most efficient and cost saving manner.
