Service Objects Expands DOTS Address Validation – International Global Coverage & Adds Apartment & Suite Level Validation

New release offers major improvements including expanded global address coverage.

SANTA BARBARA, CA (October 14, 2020)

Service Objects, the leading provider of real-time global contact validation solutions, is announcing a significant upgrade to its DOTS Address Validation – International (AVI) service for correcting, standardizing and appending global addresses in real time. This major new release substantially enhances both its processing logic and address coverage, just in time for a predicted record 2020 holiday shopping season.

We are proud to offer industry-leading capabilities for international addresses at a historic point in time where worldwide retail and digital markets are growing faster than ever.

Geoff Grow, CEO, Service Objects

This new release dramatically increases the number of global addresses that can be processed at street level or better, now covering 88% of the world’s countries – a more than threefold increase in the number of countries covered at this level. Overall, global address coverage has been increased by a total of 77% compared with the previous release.

These expanded capabilities include subpremise level validation at the apartment or suite level for an additional 14 countries, including Canada, Australia, the United Kingdom, Hong Kong and many more. It also includes transliteration capabilities for eight countries including Japan and China, together with existing capabilities to validate addresses in local languages.

In addition, Address Validation – International provides support for over 250 countries and territories worldwide, verifying and correcting addresses to each country’s postal formats and cultural idiosyncrasies, supporting over 25,000 alternate country names and language variations. Continually updated on a daily basis from country-specific postal authorities, AVI offers up to 99.5% match accuracy and response times as fast as 200 milliseconds.

“These expanded capabilities represent a major investment on the part of Service Objects to serve an increasingly global marketplace,” said Founder and CEO Geoff Grow. “We are proud to offer industry-leading capabilities for international addresses, alongside our flagship address validation services for the United States and Canada, at a historic point in time where worldwide retail and digital markets are growing faster than ever.”
