THE OBSTACLES THAT SLOW DOWN YOUR BUSINESS (AND HOW TO OVERCOME THEM)
Running a business efficiently means that, every day, you have to face numerous unexpected factors and problems and overcome them. A daily challenge that can be won with the help of colleagues, experts, partners and also cutting edge IT systems and software, like Address 4 – the multiplatform that has been developed to support all operations for Address Validation, Geocoding and Data Quality. For anyone running ecommerce, working on CMR, data entry and collection, operators in shipping and delivery sectors, address validation is a practical and secure solution to be ahead of the problems and therefore avoid a great deal. Here are 5 obstacles you can avoid with Address 4!
1) FAILED PRODUCT OR ADVERTISING DELIVERIES
The only way your products or advertising material can reach the customers the first time is to know their exact addresses. This goal can be achieved thanks to the online address validation which automatically checks the data entered by the user during the purchase or information request phases (Address Validation Autocomplete) or using the other methods provided for International Address Validation.
2) EXTRA COSTS DUE TO ERRORS AND DELAYS
Postal address validation and availability of updated and checked data is the best way to eliminate all extra costs due to errors, delays or duplicated and repeated work. To improve data quality is the first step to reduce waste to a minimum and make the most efficient use of your resources.
3) DISSATISFIED CUSTOMERS AND LOW CUSTOMER LOYALTY
Customer care is built over time by looking after your public and customer relations. Failed deliveries, emails addressed to the wrong people, delays in delivering brochures and pamphlets, these are all errors that determine the level of customer satisfaction and impact their loyalty. Discover how by integrating Address 4 addressed to Customer relationship management!
4) UNRELIABLE DATABASES FOR PROFILING AND MARKETING
Each actual or potential customer, each supplier and partner is represented by a series of data (address, town, phone number, name and surname). Creating a reliable database goes hand in hand with correct user profiling. The result is superior data quality, which is essential for all marketing, sales and promotional campaigns.
5) APPROXIMATE DATA COLLECTION AND MANAGEMENT
The fifth and final error that can be avoided with Address Validation is approximate data collection and management. By using Address 4 for all data entry operations you can count on automatic completion of any missing data and suggestions for the entered data, with the final validation of the address recorded in the database.
