Address Cleansing And Validation Services

Address Cleansing and Validation

Accurately validated addresses are vital for your service delivery, operations and reporting efficiency. Mailing out is now a costly exercise and it can be even more expensive if the mail is not delivered to the right address or the right person.

Datawash can cleanse and correct your invalid addresses and append a DPID (Delivery Point Identifier used in the barcode) to help you qualify for Australia Post’s mailing discounts. Datawash can also update parts of your addresses such as Suburb boundaries, postcodes, etc that change frequently.

Invalid addresses often contain spelling errors in the street or suburb information, missing or incorrect details. Where no DPID can be found for an address, Datawash’s automatic software can clean and correct the errors within the address and improve the quality of the address so that a DPID can be appended with high confidence level.
