J&P Cycles Purchases Experian QAS Software to Enhance Customer Service

Retailer Rolls Out Address Verification on Website to Prevent Undeliverable Packages

BOSTON, MA--(Marketwire - September 28, 2010) -  Experian® QAS®, a leading provider of address verification software and services, today announced that J&P Cycles, the world's largest aftermarket motorcycle parts and accessories store, has rolled out QAS Pro Web on its ecommerce site and has purchased QAS Pro for its call center. The products are expected to reduce undeliverable packages, diminish returned mail and prevent duplicate addresses.

"Our main focus is customer service," said Tim Barcz, senior manager of ecommerce at J&P Cycles. "We want to make sure that when you order a product from us, you get that package in a timely fashion. We see address verification as one more piece of the customer service pie to help us ensure customer satisfaction."

In addition to accurate package delivery, J&P Cycles expects the Experian QAS products to ensure the accuracy of addresses entering the database, preventing duplicates, saving costs and increasing the delivery of marketing pieces.

"Inaccurate addresses collected on the ecommerce site or call center hurt customer service efforts and ultimately damage customer retention," said David Northridge, vice president of client retention, Experian QAS. "By collecting accurate contact information, retailers can improve the customer shopping experience, but perhaps more importantly, continue to connect with those customers and promote cross-sell and up-sell opportunities in the future."
