Postal code software

Definition:

Postal code software provides address validation against the most recent U.S. Postal Service delivery point validation file.

Users enter information into the postal code software interface which automatically searches for, finds, and validates a standardized address. Some postal code software products can provide address validation in 15 or fewer keystrokes.

Utilizing address validation with postal code software is an effective way to:

  • Ensure accurate delivery and billing addresses
  • Reduce returned mail costs
  • Improve customer service

Postal code software providers, like Experian Data Quality, offer a valuable product and service to companies whom rely heavily on correct addresses. Experian Data Quality's product suite offers both front-end and back-end address verification services, which validate addresses against the latest data from the United States Postal Service®.
