New Address Verification Integration Designed to Improve the Customer Experience and Reduce Operational Costs

BOSTON, MA--(Marketwire - May 25, 2010) - Experian® QAS®, a leading provider of address verification software and services, today announced a new integration to Demandware, the global leader in on-demand ecommerce, that is designed to improve the customer experience and reduce operational costs. The new address verification functionality works seamlessly within the retailer's existing ecommerce interface and can be enabled quickly and with minimal information technology resources.

"We are excited to expand our relationship with Demandware," said David Northridge, vice president of client retention, Experian QAS. "Retailers want address quality enhancements without the hassle of custom integrations and architectural changes, and QAS for Demandware offers a competitive integration with which we can build shared success with Demandware."

The Experian QAS functionality ensures that every address is complete and accurate in real time with minimal change to the existing online shopping experience. By avoiding address errors, retailers will reduce back-end staff rework and operational costs while improving the customer experience.
