The improvement and cleansing of addresses reduces undeliverable mail and can improve mailing discounts. Correct addressing can also maintain your brand image and the chances of identifying duplicates within your database.
Our advanced Address Cleansing service compares your address data against Royal Mail's Postcode Address File (PAF). PAF is the primary reference for all address data in the UK and contains over 1.8 million UK postcodes and over 30 million residential and business addresses. The file is updated 4,000 – 5,000 times a day adding new addresses and making changes to existing addresses such as postcode changes.
Our service improves address quality in a number of ways:
Address elements e.g. postcode changes
Mispellings within address elements
Missing address elements e.g. missing town
Save Time and Money
Allocate marketing spend to target audiences and reduce time on manually updating data

We provide a range of output options to ensure that the enhanced data is compatible with your systems.
