Address data fit for purpose across the customer lifecycle

Address validation ensures only accurate and complete addresses are populated in your database. Addresses can be validated both at the point of capture and as existing records in your database. There are two ways to seamlessly integrate this into your processes and workflows:

- Profile and segment your data to highlight new business opportunities

- Cleanse contact information for more effective up-sell and cross- sell communications

- Capture accurate customer information the first time for superior customer service

Validate address data in real-time or bulk

Address validation ensures only accurate and complete addresses are populated in your database. Addresses can be validated both at the point of capture and as existing records in your database. There are two ways to seamlessly integrate this into your processes and workflows:

Real – time - search for a person’s address, from minimal information such as a postcode or the first line of an address, and return a valid complete address in real time

Bulk – mode - validate existing addresses by matching against reference datasets (such as the PAF), with further enrichment capabilities if required
