President’s Message

It was good to hear from you

By Craig Aman, President and CEO

Thank you for your feedback. We appreciate it!

As I read through the 2019 Client Satisfaction Survey results, I found myself sitting on the edge of my seat. Not because I thought I would see anything negative, but because what all of you think about MACC is truly that important to me.

Software Update

Make your job easier with address comments

It’s easy to add comments to addresses. Address comments can be anything from simple instructions, notes, or driving directions to something like adding the word “FIBER” to a location offering fiber service. To add a comment to one address at a time, go to the Address Editor. I recommend using the Address Suite to make it easy to navigate through all types of address options.

Creative Solutions

Timing is everything when it comes to bill inserts

A good rule of thumb for making sure your bill inserts are ready on time for inserting is to remember the numbers five and 10. If you are having your inserts printed elsewhere and delivered to MACC, please make sure they arrive five business days in advance of your bill transmit day. If you are having files printed by MACC’s Creative Services Team, please send artwork to us at least 10 business days prior to your transmit day. Printing requests for inserts received within three days of bill transmit may be subject to a $50 late fee. For questions regarding bill inserts, please contact Kristi Rounds at 402-533-5184 or [email protected].
