Verify and improve unstructured addresses from 3rd parties
Oni Address Cleansing Engine is a backend web service (API) designed for businesses who need to validate and improve the quality of unstructured addresses captured from 3rd parties, from systems where there is no front-end validation in place, or even when transcribing addresses from paper to a digital platform.
Key features include:
Most logistics and delivery companies validate 3rd party addresses by cross-checking them with their own or 3rd party database / APIs, or even via Google’s Geocoding API.
However this won’t be enough in most cases: these solutions will only tell you that something is wrong with an address, but they won’t tell you why it’s wrong. They will also only validate the fields provided by the customer at checkout but won’t tell you which fields are missing.
Oni ACE can solve this problem by identifying missing components as well as offering a customer feedback loop using a link based front-end validation service AVW.
If you operate in regions such as the Middle East or Asia, you might be having issues when translating addresses written in special characters. Translating languages such as Arabic and Chinese require a complex process of transliteration from one system of writing to another based on phonetic similarity.
ACE incorporates advanced machine learning technologies for an accurate transliteration that allows for faster address validation while maintaining the integrity of the address.
Having the right Address Validation system in place is critical for financial services and insurance companies: ensuring a customer provides a valid address when opening a bank account helps prevent fraudulent users. It also guarantees that customers receive key communications via post, such as bank cards. Additionally, maintaining a clean address data set enables the collection of debts to be simplified by ensuring correspondence is received to enforce repayments.
When it comes to a business customer instead, being able to identify a change in address or understand if there is still business operating at a certain address, can be vital in helping banks to comply with laws.
Our Address cleansing service can alert you when one of your business customers changes their listing, avoiding failure to comply with industry regulations.
Retailers and ecommerce providers should capture and validate the customer addresses at the source with our Address Verification Widget.
If no front end validation was in place, Oni’s ACE can work retrospectively to identify and fix incorrect or incomplete addresses to avoid future missed deliveries, redeliveries and other futile charges that can hinder your business growth.
Oni’s address cleansing engine also helps retailers and ecommerce providers identify and remove duplicates of customer addresses within a CRM.
