Royal Mail PAF Database
Address cleansing involves checking your data against the Postal Address File, also known as the PAF database. It contains every address record in the UK and includes all address elements including; town, county, and full postcodes.
As part of our free data quality appraisal we check your address data against this comprehensive database for incomplete or partial addresses.
Every part of the address can be verified and if necessary, updated.
Combined with our data cleansing tools, our address correction service will ensure the enhanced data returned to you has a correctly formatted postcode, town and county.
Returning Corrected Address Data
After your data cleanse is complete, our data cleansing team can return a clean file that is ready to mail. We can even help you format your clean address file for print, if needed.
Alternatively, we can return an updated file with a ‘flag’ or indicator field so you can update your own CRM. Clean address data is only useful if you can take advantage of it.
Whatever your requirements we are happy to help and provide useful advice however we can.
