Address Matching Software
Match your address data against a standardized government database like the USPS to get accurate and valid data. Improve your mailing campaigns, reduce operational costs and enhance operational efficiency with data you can rely on.
What is Address Matching?
Address matching is a back-end solution that matches address fields to a government database to verify and validate the accuracy of the address. This is made possible by matching or comparing elements of each address in the database (such as the city name, street name, zip code etc) against each attribute of the government database.
The final output of an address matching process is an address that follows the standardization of the USPS, which states that an a standardized address, ‘‘one that is fully spelled out, abbreviated using the Postal Service standard abbreviations, or as shown in the current Postal Service ZIP+4 file.”
Why Do You Need an Address Matching Software?
While address matching fundamentally helps you with validating your address against a reliable database, it is also used to solve problems with duplication and redundancy in address data. For example, if you have one entity with multiple variations of an address, the address matching solution will identify this redundancy and create one complete address for one entity.
Furthermore, an address matching software also lets you:
Clean address data and fix errors such as typos, incorrect structure, punctuation issues etc.
Match address data from multiple data sources for achieving single entity view.
Dedupe redundant data and get reliable data to use for analysis and reporting.

Match Against Government Databases
The primary function of address matching is to ensure that the data you have complies with the government database. This means, your address information must be real, valid and found in the list of addresses provided by the government.
Keep Your Reputation Intact
Avoid embarrassing situations when you are dealing with customers’ address information. Return mails, sending the wrong deliveries or targeting the wrong audience with a mail campaign are not just costly mistakes, but also embarrassing ones that can affect your reputation.
Merge Data from Multiple Sources
When it comes to contact information, address data is usually stored in multiple data sources. Sales, marketing, customer service could all be creating different variations of the same address. An address matching software will collect these disparate sources and unify them into one source of truth. This means you will have one entity with one final, complete, USPS validated address.
