Harte-Hanks Trillium Software(TM) Announces Delivery Point


Validation Enables Customers to Verify That Addresses are Served by the United
                            States Postal Service

BILLERICA, Mass., Dec. 16 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Trillium Software(TM), a division of Harte-Hanks, Inc. (NYSE: HHS) and the market leader in global data quality solutions, announced today that the Trillium Software System(R) has received Delivery Point Validation from the United States Postal Service (USPS). Delivery Point Validation (DPV), which authenticates the accuracy of mailings, is now available as part of the Trillium Software System.

By implementing DPV technology with the Trillium Software System, customers can verify quickly and easily that a given U.S. street address actually exists, down to the street, apartment or suite number, and nine-digit ZIP Code. The DPV data set, which consists of the nearly 150 million addresses to which the USPS delivers daily, is updated monthly. The new technology significantly reduces undeliverable-as-addressed mail resulting from inaccurate addresses, offering marketers and mailers considerable savings in production, postage and labor costs.

"Harte-Hanks has an extraordinary amount of postal experience built over decades working alongside the Postal Service, and providing mail management expertise to hundreds of clients," said Gary Skidmore, corporate officer and senior vice president, Harte-Hanks. Skidmore noted that DPV is built into the most advanced customer data management process applications of Harte-Hanks.

"Building DPV technology into our software provides added benefit to organizations looking to truly understand the existence of, and exact location of physical addresses," said Len Dubois, vice president of marketing for Trillium Software. "By identifying the precise location of a prospect or customer, organizations can reduce costs through more efficient routing of package delivery, decrease the liability associated with mail fraud and increase customer service and satisfaction."

The latest release of the Trillium Software System, Version 7, provides organizations with an easy-to-use software solution that identifies, quantifies and corrects data problems that jeopardize such critical business processes as customer relationship management (CRM), enterprise resource planning (ERP), supply chain management (SCM) and business intelligence (BI) systems.
