  • Every survey you send is correct and accounted for until it reaches your respondents.
  • You have seamless access to critical information like program progress and requisite reports throughout the lifecycle of your survey program.
  • Your surveys will be delivered on time, every time.
  • You maintain 100% compliance with contract requirements and government regulations.

Delivering on time, every time.

NPC’s secure and modern print, mail and fulfillment facilities provide redundant data management and print production so there are zero interruptions to delivering your survey programs.

How we can help…

  • End-to-End Accountability & Accuracy

    Make sure each and every survey package is correct and accounted for.

    We use a closed-loop process with camera verification and quality checkpoints to precisely track and trace mail pieces throughout the production process. This ensures that each survey is printed, packaged and mailed in accordance with the intended survey methodology. An audit report verifies that each survey packaged was produced and mailed with the correct cover letter, survey and BRE.

  • Just-in-Time Production

    Deliver a better experience and get your surveys to people faster.

    We can help you reduce production-to-delivery times so you can get surveys to people sooner and minimize the number of survey re-mailings. Respondents who already completed a survey will appreciate not being sent duplicate mailings, and you’ll save valuable printing and postage costs in the process.

  • Return Mail Management

    Avoid the burden of undeliverable mail and reduce survey processing time and costs.

    Managing and processing completed surveys and undeliverable mail is a costly resource drain on your organization. We can help you process completed surveys quickly and accurately, digitally capture the survey response data, and provide the information back to you in any format.
