Experian QAS Joins Symitar's Vendor Integration Program to Integrate Address Verification

Data Quality Software Company Designs Address Verification Enhancement to Decrease Operational Costs, Increase Marketing Returns and Improve Member Satisfaction

BOSTON, MA--(Marketwire - December 14, 2010) - Experian® QAS®, a leading provider of address verification software and services, today announced membership in the Symitar™ Vendor Integration Program (VIP). Symitar is the leading provider of information processing solutions for credit unions of all sizes. VIP membership now allows Experian QAS to integrate its address verification software into Symitar's Episys® core processing system.

The new functionality allows users to verify and standardize member addresses in real time. The QAS Pro Web integration with Episys is designed to reduce returned mail and associated costs, improve member satisfaction and increase marketing effectiveness.

"Credit Unions have a finite number of potential members; therefore, service is of paramount importance," says David Northridge, vice president of client retention, Experian QAS. "By verifying the member's address up front, credit unions can do more to improve the member onboarding process and ensure the delivery of time-sensitive communications."

VIP membership enables Experian to integrate the QAS software directly with Episys, significantly reducing rollout and maintenance requirements for Episys users. Once enabled, Episys users have the ability to leverage Experian QAS functionality for all newly captured addresses, as well as for existing addresses that have not yet been verified.

The QAS Pro Web integration with Episys is available to users immediately.
