Address accuracy saves time and money. It is the backbone of excellent service, customer retention, duplicate prevention, analysis, enhanced reputation and more profitable business performance.
Access to UK adult resident and organisation names and telephone numbers meets a legitimate business need to establish identity, reduce fraud, drive marketing activity and recover debts.
Maintaining a clean, duplicate-free customer, supporter, member or prospect address database is foundational to effective marketing, high quality service and on-time delivery.
Cleansed addresses make access to Royal Mail postage discounts possible and data analysis more reliable. This protects reputation and supports sound financial management.
Successful electronic payments require precise, accurate bank account numbers, sort codes or credit and debit card numbers. But people make mistakes when reading them, writing them down or keying them in.
Some even try to delay payment or defraud by introducing deliberate errors.
UK based organisations trade and deliver goods and services across the globe. But international address data formats vary widely and address inaccuracy causes expensive service failures and non-delivery.
