Address Cleansing / Validation


Datawash can clean up addresses that cannot be validated to attain a DPID (Delivery Point Identifier used in the barcode) in order to qualify for mailing discounts. Also, Datawash can update various parts of an address that change from time to time (Suburb boundaries, postcodes, etc)

These invalid addresses can contain spelling errors in the street or suburb information, missing or incorrect details. Where DPID allocation fails to return a DPID, Datawash uses automatic software to clean up erroneous information from the address and lift the quality of the address so that a DPID can be attained with high level of confidence.
