In some countries, postal authorities have introduced certification programs to define quality standards for address verification software. As in the United States, Canada or Australia, postal certification is an absolute necessity if you plan to post bulk mail at discounted rate in France. Customers standardizing their French addresses with AddressDoctor can benefit from special lowered rates offered by la Poste and drastically reduce costs resulting from inaccurate addresses and non-deliverable mail.
“Postal certifications serve as a standard for quality measurement for address validation software,” said Steffen Niehues, vice president and general manager, AddressDoctor. “Companies using AddressDoctor to verify French addresses will automatically profit from the new certification ensuring timely mail delivery thanks to accurate and correctly formatted addresses. Systems Integrators using AddressDoctor’s Software Library in their solutions, which is embedded in the Informatica Master Data Management (MDM) and Informatica Data Quality, will be able to provide SNA approved address verification for France.”
