Experian QAS Enables Nonprofit to Improve Data Quality and
Operational Efficiency 
BOSTON, MA -- (Marketwire) -- 10/24/12 --   Experian(R) QAS(R), a
part of Experian Marketing Services and a leading provider of address
verification software and services, today announced that Invisible
Children has deployed Experian QAS address verification software for
Salesforce via the AppExchange, the world's most-popular cloud
marketplace for social apps for business. The nonprofit agency chose
the address verification software to enhance overall data quality and
to improve staff efficiency, lobbying efforts and fundraising
campaigns.  
"Mailing address details are entered into our system by both
individuals online and over 190 volunteers," said Liz Allen, director
of customer engagement at Invisible Children. "With all of those
channels and people, it can be difficult to manage any validation or
data quality standards. With the inline workflow that Experian QAS
provides, we no longer have to worry about our users entering
inaccurate information." 
Invisible Children chose Experian QAS's address verification solution
to ensure physical mailings are delivered using the most updated
address data available and to reduce wasted mail costs. Having
improved address data quality also will help the organization
generate more accurate demographic reports, improve intelligence and
enable better targeting of congressional districts for lobbying
efforts. 
"Contact data is crucial to many business functions," said David
Northridge, vice president of client retention, Experian QAS. "It is
important for organizations to remove the possibility for human error
in data entry, which is the number one cause of errors. Accurate data
will enable organizations to realize a host of benefits, including
precise reporting and improved communications."
