Experian to help with address standardization at Indiana CU

Rachel Wheeler Archive
Address standardization will be made easier at Purdue Employees Federal Credit Union (PEFCU) in Indiana using software provided by Experian.

The software will be used to make sure that address data entered by members on the internet is accurate and the firm's NCOALink file will be used to check all 57,000 members by QAS Professional Services, reports the Credit Union Times.

The measures are being taken to make sure that Move Update bulk mailing rules are adhered to when they are checked on a quarterly basis.

Michelle Gustin, IT services manager at PEFCU, told the website: "With cleaner, more standardized addresses, we anticipate seeing not only a reduction in returned mail, but also a higher success rate of members receiving communication."

In other news, thousands of checks destined for people across the US have been sent back to the Inland Revenue Service as returned mail due to incorrect address data being used, with the Gainesville Times reporting the return of $5 million worth of checks from Georgia alone.
