Announcing Enhanced Capabilities for Address Validation – Canada

Service Objects supports address validation capabilities for contact addresses around the globe – however, we have long had a special relationship with people doing business with Canada. Many of our global clients market to businesses and consumers with Canadian addresses, and our DOTS Address Validation – Canada service is one of our flagship products.

We are pleased to announce a major upgrade of Address Validation – Canada with numerous performance and accuracy enhancements. Here is a quick overview of what’s new in this latest release.

What’s new in AV – Canada

Our Address Validation – Canada product is engineered from the ground up to work with the unique requirements of Canadian addresses. Using up-to-date address data from Canada Post, it covers over 15 million addresses in all 10 provinces and 3 territories of Canada. It can verify, correct and append contact addresses in English or French, with language auto-detection capabilities, as well as formatting and casing options in either language.

Some of the new enhancements available in this latest release include:

  • New datasets and better algorithms to significantly increase match rates for addresses, with a 40% increase in addresses found and matched
  • Improved processing capabilities for difficult to parse addresses
  • Enhanced and more complete data provided on returned addresses

This product features an API-based interface allowing you to integrate it with major business automation platforms, as well as the ability to use it through cloud connectors, batch list processing, or online quick lookups for individual addresses. The enhancements in this new release, combined with sophisticated fuzzy matching logic, provide even more robust match and correction rates for challenging contact addresses.

Part of a global family of address validation products

Address Validation – Canada supports your real-time applications with an average 90ms response time as well as unparalleled data quality.

It helps you standardize your Canadian contact addresses for improved efficiency, and reduce costs by avoiding lost, undeliverable and returned mail and packages.
