The PAVE program is a process, designed in cooperation with the mailing
industry, to evaluate presort software and determine its accuracy in sorting
and hardware developers, i.e., companies that develop presort software
or manufacture presorting equipment for resale or internal use. PAVE provides
a common platform to measure the quality of presort products, including
an evaluation of standardized documentation, container labels and postage
statement facsimiles that support presorted mailings, and, by doing so,
improves the accuracy of presorted mailings.
