Experian QAS integrates email, telephone and international address validation

08/28/2012

Experian® QAS®, a part of Experian Marketing Services and a leading provider of address verification software and services, today announced the release of three new integrations: email verification, phone validation and international data for address verification.

These products are integrated into Salesforce and are designed to boost form completion, reduce costs and improve business intelligence.

"As businesses continue to leverage digital communications and expand their international reach, we want to help them capture contact information as accurately as possible," said Thomas Schutz, senior vice president, general manager of Experian QAS. "Our tools provide a wide range of contact data validation, allowing businesses to improve the way they communicate with consumers and enhance overall data quality."

Email verification ensures deliverability by identifying format and syntax errors and verifying that a domain can receive mail. Phone validation checks U.S. and Canadian landlines for area code and format errors before standardizing the telephone number.

International data for address verification extends the current address verification capabilities within Salesforce CRM by validating address information for up to 219 countries.

These Experian QAS tools are immediately available for test drive and deployment on the AppExchange, the app marketplace for the social enterprise, at http://www.salesforce.com/appexchange.
