Customised address maintenance
Around 800,000 people in Switzerland relocate every year. If you do not keep your addresses up-to-date, you risk losing 10% of your customer base on average, every year.
Ongoing address maintenance pays off.
The advantages for you:
- Always have correct customer addresses
- Significant reduction of undeliverable items
- Increased efficiency of your own mail processing
- Greater accuracy of direct marketing campaigns
- Improvement of customer satisfaction
You decide which of the following Swiss Post address maintenance services you would like to use. Your choice of services depends on your specific requirements, as well as on the personnel and technical conditions in your company or organization. Regardless of which option you choose, you will always receive all available relocation information for private individuals and businesses from throughout Switzerland, as well as for relocations to or from the Principality of Liechtenstein.
The choice is yours:
