The cost of Undeliverable as Addressed (UAA)
Whenever a piece of mail cannot be delivered because the address is incorrect, incomplete or illegible, the U.S. Postal Service (USPS) processes it as Undeliverable as Addressed (UAA). It is not only costly for the USPS, but also for the company sending mail as well, which could spend up to $25 per returned piece to make corrections and resend the mail.
Additionally, it can generate other problems for businesses including an increase in customer service costs, delayed payment from clients who haven’t received their bills or statements, leading ultimately to a bad customer experience.

Improve your address accuracy and get rewarded with the CASS certification postal savings
The Coding Accuracy Support System (CASS) enables organizations that send a large volume of mail to evaluate and improve the accuracy, the validation, the correction and the certification of their customer addresses.
This results in substantial reduced postal rate, which you can estimate with our estimator, for addresses that have been validated prior to being sent by mail.
While it is common for GIS platform providers to offer an integrated geocoding solution, companies often have mixed requirements, including geocoding, address recognition and postal address validation/certification.
Through the Precisely Geocoding Connector, Korem offers a unique CASS certified solution that combines high accuracy geocoding and integrates seamlessly with the ArcGIS ecosystem (ArcGIS Desktop, ArcGIS Pro, ArcGIS Portal and ArcGIS Online), for postal savings.
- USPS reports that 23.6% of mail is addressed incorrectly
- USPS estimates that data quality decays 17% per year
- Bad addresses cost the USPS $2 Billion per year, and costs mailers even more.
