Address Verification Software
AddressVerifier improves the deliverability of your mail piece by matching the incoming address or your entire file against the most current USPS® ZIP+4® database. This callable Application Programming Interface (API) easily integrates into most data entry or web applications that run on virtually any hardware platform. Optional add-on modules instantly assure greater mail deliverability, improved bottom line performance and provides valuable customer data. The USPS file is updated monthly and contains ZIP Code® and street names for all residential and commercial addresses. In addition to providing a correct standardized address including street number and name, city, state and ZIP Code, AddressVerifier also provides congressional district, county name, delivery point barcode, and carrier route codes. These functions provide added accuracy and improved marketing information.
- Delivery Point Validation (DPV) confirms the actual existence of an address down to the house number using a USPS proprietary database.
- GeoCoding assigns latitude and longitude coordinates at the ZIP+4 level for routing, mapping or marketing research applications.
- Telephone Area Code/Exchange option assigns and/or validates area code and telephone exchange information.
AddressVerifier is used to quickly enter and verify address and related information correctly, and can be embedded in Internet, on-line call center, point of sale, or batch processing applications. The reduced number of keystrokes, due to the context sensitive look-up feature, increases productivity. After entering the ZIP Code, house number, and just a few strokes of the street name, AddressVerifier provides the rest of the address. The accuracy of the address data improves your deliverability, and the residual data elements reduce ancillary batch processing steps. This translates into lower costs and a higher level of customer satisfaction.
Since AddressVerifier is a callable API for in-house use or ASP use with behind the scene functionality, there is no need to change the format of the current user program. User training is virtually immediate.
