Experian QAS launches new online data cleansing services through ecommerce site

10/05/2011

Experian® QAS®, a part of Experian Marketing Services and a leading provider of address verification software and services, today released three new data cleansing services for its ecommerce site. The new services allow for online NCOALink® processing, Advanced Address Correction, and deceased and prison suppression.

The products provide a scalable 24-hour service that enables companies to upload data files through the Experian QAS Website so that contact details can be matched against any of the data files within 48 hours. Returned files permit businesses to update and correct outdated contact data to create a more complete customer view.

"Contact data is a dynamic piece of information for any business, and that data needs to be updated on a regular basis," said Thomas Schutz, senior vice president, general manager of Experian QAS. "The goal of these new products is to provide a quick, convenient way for businesses to clean existing contact data files to increase marketing conversion and improve business analytics."

The new services are completely hosted and automatically updated with the latest data available. This allows businesses to free up internal IT resources that would otherwise be spent managing and rolling out on-premise products and services.

These services are available now at http://www.qas.com/solutions/ncoa-address-update.htm.
