Improve accuracy in real-time and batch processing

Spectrum Universal Addressing Module

Increase customer satisfaction and profitability by capturing more accurate address information at the point of data entry.

Improve Accuracy in Real-Time and Batch Processing

Address data exists throughout your enterprise – in customer databases, call centres, websites, and marketing systems. Companies that capture address information via the web or interact with customers in a call centre environment must ensure address accuracy in real time. Reliable address information is required to communicate effectively with your customers, develop an accurate single customer view and leverage your customer-facing technology investments. In addition, accurate information enables organisations to ensure the deliverability of goods and services, personalise customer communications, and identify and eliminate related or duplicate records from marketing campaigns.

The Universal Addressing Module for the Spectrum Technology Platform is a sophisticated Java-based application that provides address validation, correction and standardisation technologies for over 220 countries and dependencies worldwide. With the increasing need to ensure data quality in real-time in mission- critical applications, the Universal Addressing solution allows organisations to quickly and easily integrate this important functionality into their operating environments.
