Address Coding Engines are built keeping certain countries and datasets in mind. It is practically impossible for a single Addressing Coding engine to do extremely well for all countries.

Most Address Validation vendors take a single ‘Coding Engine’ approach that focuses on their few key countries.

Providing the best possible address validation answer requires multiple coding engines and a great deal of reference data that increases the cost. For some business use cases, this extra cost provides benefit to our customer’s business. But some customers are cost focus and do not require the absolute best answer possible.

Spectrum OnDemand takes an approach to balance cost and desired quality to meet our customer business needs by providing 3 levels of international address validation: Basic, Pro and Premium.

ValidateMailingAddress (Basic)

ValidateMailingAddress (Basic) chooses the optimal coding engine for the country and avoids the most expensive engines and datasets. In some cases, the choice will be excellent if the reference data is not expensive.

ValidateMailingAddressPro

ValidateMailingAddressPro uses the best single choice of engine for the country. When it cannot get results, it then runs into another coding engine to uplift that poor result to a better result. This approach slightly increases the cost but provides very good results.

ValidateMailingAddressPremium

ValidateMailingAddressPremium tries to get the best result possible. It uses multiple engines and uplift steps to get the best result. These extra steps cost more to us to provide but it gives the best result possible which many clients need.
