Having the correct name is essential to effectively communicating with a customer or lead. Name Validation performs a 40-step check to help your business weed out bogus and inaccurate names and prevents embarrassing personalization mistakes being sent to customers and prospects.
Your brand has a lot riding on getting your customer and prospects names right. Accurate names are key to effective personalization and also an important indicator of fraudulent and bogus web form submissions.
