We can make sure that the right information is being added correctly, to ensure consistency and accuracy, especially if a number of different people have access to the input process. Datawash can save businesses money and time by ensuring they have a healthy, clean database ready to utilize to its full potential.

Datawash can clean up addresses that cannot be validated to attain a DPID (Delivery Point Identifier used in the mailing barcode) in order to qualify for mailing discounts.
