Would using AVS and CVV2 increase the likelihood that my transactions are approved?

I am experiencing an irritatingly high number of transactions that are declined by the card's issuers (message: Transaction Status: Declined (Card declined by issuer - Contact card issuer to determine reason.)). 


At the moment, we don't seem to use AVS or CVV2 features for our transactions. If we were to modify our setup to use these features, would our transactions be more likely go through more often, or would it have no impact on whether or not the issuer decides to decline a particular transaction?


All of my transactions are with large businesses, so it isn't usually an issue of the customer not being able to financially complete the transaction. It seems to usually be an issue where the issuer is worried that the transaction might be fraudulent.
