Why do I need to perform address verification?

Are you in an industry where there is need to send shipments to locations around the world or to send individuals to locations for pickup, drop-offs, repairs or other business reasons?
Are you using Microsoft Dynamics 365 (CRM) or Power Apps to store addresses (accounts, customers, contacts, work orders etc)?

If you answered yes to both of these questions, you should know there is no way to make sure addresses are accurate in Dynamics 365. This can result in shipments being sent to wrong locations and returned, or to people being sent to locations that do not exist. The cost of managing returns, drivers' loss of time, gas consumption among many other errors can be a great burden for any business.

To reduce the cost associated with these types of errors, using Address Validation for Dynamics 365 & Power Apps is a simple and inexpensive solution.

There are free community tools for address verification. Why should we buy a product?

Many of our customers have come to us after the free tool(s) they were using stopped working, stopped being maintained or took a long time to get updated.

As an IVS solution provider, we maintain our solution and always make sure they are updated along with Microsoft's updates to the platform. We also provide support and bug fixes.

Lastly, we offer a wide range of options when it comes to supported address verification APIs. This gives you choice and flexibility : research the APIs, match with your needs, pick one and get going.

Why buy Address Validation for Dataverse if I can buy similar tools from an address verification shop?

We position ourselves differently from traditional data quality API vendors. Most of these companies have deep data quality expertise and large proprietary databases and search algorithms. Very few of these companies have the proper Dynamics 365/Power Platform expertise. Our focus is to work in reverse, we are driven towards providing an empowering and flexible address verification solution for organizations using Microsoft Dynamics 365.

  • Easy configuration for admins and end users
  • Flexibility in enabling address verification on any table and any address column
  • The ability for CRM owners to decide which API they want to use
  • The ability to verify addresses without any user interactions (using workflows) or a user friend address autocomplete widget
  • Straight forward licencing model : we do not make any money on address verification transactions, we just give you the tool and freedom to choose your own verification API
