Experian QAS Launches QAS Pro On Demand

Web-Based Address Verification Product Now Available in a Software as a Service Deployment Model

BOSTON, MA--(Marketwire - May 5, 2009) - Experian® QAS®, a leading provider of address verification software and services, today announced the release of QAS Pro On Demand. The new service combines QAS' proven contact data management technology with Experian's secure hosting capabilities.

QAS Pro On Demand provides companies with a scalable 24-hour service that enables U.S. and international addresses to be quickly and securely validated via the Internet. Even when critical address information is absent, such as an apartment number or a street directional, the service intuitively narrows down possible address matches and prompts the user for missing information. This ensures that a complete and correctly formatted address populates an organization's database. The company's new software as a service (SaaS) proposition enables organizations to greatly reduce the costs associated with incomplete customer records.

"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," said Joel Curry, chief operating officer, Experian QAS. "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, providing users with highly secure access to data. The new service is updated with the most recent postal data available, allowing organizations to free up valuable internal IT resources that would be spent managing and rolling out the product.

QAS Pro On Demand is available immediately.
