Experian QAS has released QAS Pro On Demand. Combining QAS' contact data management technology with Experian's secure hosting capabilities, QAS Pro On Demand offers companies a scalable 24-hour service that enables U.S. and international addresses to be quickly and securely validated via the Internet. According to the London-based provider of address verification software and services, if critical address information such as an apartment number or a street directional is absent, the service is able to narrow down possible address matches and prompts the user for missing information.

Claiming the vendor's new software as a service (SaaS) proposition enables organizations to greatly reduce costs associated with incomplete customer records, Joel Curry, chief operating officer, Experian QAS, said in a release, "By offering address verification in a SaaS model, we are enabling organizations of all sizes to maintain accurate contact data in a cost-effective platform. As businesses change over time, our new infrastructure is able to adapt to shifting demands."

The entire hardware and software platform is hosted and managed by Experian, which, the company says, provides users with highly secure access to data. According to the provider, the service is updated with the most recent postal data available, allowing organizations to free internal IT resources that would otherwise be spent managing and rolling out the product.
