DataMatch Enterprise Documents: Address Verification


This premium feature allows you to validate address and company information with the USPS database among others.  This feature is a “must-have” if you are using DataMatch Enterprise to clean a mailing list. This page will include the number of days that are remaining in the validation of the current CASS files database. This database needs to be renewed every 60 days and will be sent to licensed users before it expires.

The user may move items to the left pane he or she does not want to see in the export.  By default, all of the fields are active.  The user may move some or all to the inactive, left-hand pane.  The following is a description of the available fields:
