Informatica Address Verification Overview

Informatica Address Verification Overview

You can use Informatica Address Verification to verify addresses from more than 240 countries and territories. Address Verification uses the most up-to-date and complete postal reference data and ensures quality and accuracy for addresses. You can verify addresses in a quick, efficient, and effective manner.
The address verification workflow includes transliteration, parsing, formatting, validation, and enrichment of addresses. You can use the integrated transliteration capabilities to validate addresses captured in different writing systems and languages. Address Verification also standardizes and formats the address data to meet the compliance requirements that the local postal authorities specify.
Address Verification complies with the following postal certifications:
  • Address Matching Approval System (AMAS) certification for Australia Post
  • Coding Accuracy Support System (CASS) certification for the United States Postal Services
  • SendRight certification for New Zealand Post
  • Service National de L'Adresse (SNA) certification for La Poste of France
  • Software Evaluation and Recognition Program (SERP) certification for Canada Post
Address verification can retrieve address enrichments for valid addresses. Enrichments include geocoordinates, country-specific enrichments such as INSEE codes in France and time-zone codes in the United States, and demographic profiles such as CAMEO.
