Latest version of address verification web service leverages USPS® data records and Delivery Point Validation (DPV) to offer the highest level of accurate mailing information available.
SANTA BARBARA, Calif., – September 25, 2013 – Service Objects, the leading provider of real-time contact validation for businesses, announced today the launch of its latest address verification product, DOTS Address Validation – US 3SM. This real-time web service API enables companies to instantly verify, correct and standardize address data using the most up-to-date information from the USPS®.
Leveraging their USPS CASS™-certified address engine of over 165 million unique addresses, this enhanced service validates and cleanses addresses by correcting typos and missing information while Delivery Point Validation (DPV) verifies that the address is deliverable and flags for vacancies and addresses that are likely to return mail.
