<p>New version of international address management solution sets new standard for address capture and verification</p>
<p>SYDNEY – 25 February 2004 – QAS, leading international address management software company, today announced the Asia Pacific release of Version 4.0 of its award winning QuickAddress range, offering enhanced functionality and improved efficiency to users.</p>
<p>QAS developed Version 4.0 following extensive consultation with its user base, resulting in a solution that provides enhanced data integrity and improved return on investment (ROI).</p>
<p>QuickAddress Version 4.0 sports a new merged search engine, improving data entry efficiency and enhancing ease of use. It is also significantly less resource hungry, freeing up bandwidth, processing power and storage requirements to deliver improved scalability. Major improvements for developers are also incorporated, making QuickAddress easier and faster to implement.</p>
<p>QuickAddress Pro, QAS’ flagship product, designed to ensure accurate capture of addresses at the point of customer contact in a sales and customer service environment, is more intuitive than its predecessor, returning a full or complete address despite users entering ambiguous data.</p>
<p>QuickAddress Batch also incorporates new features such as the ability to identify addresses within your database that have seen a change in occupancy, thus ensuring the opportunity to update your database with the latest address details. This reduces the costs associated with return to sender mail by ensuring all mail is received by the person for whom it was intended.</p>
<p>Commenting on the Asia Pacific launch, Glenn Parker, Managing Director, QAS Asia Pacific, said, “Version 4.0 is the result of our extensive experience and a great deal of end-user research and feedback. This solution will increase data integrity levels by compensating for ‘fuzzy’ data entries while providing increased efficiencies and cost savings through improved ease of use and reduced IT administration.</p>
<p>“Version 4.0 demonstrates QAS’ commitment to maintaining its position as the leading international address management software supplier through pro-active application development. QuickAddress Version 4.0 preserves the best attributes of previous versions – the software’s stability, sophistication and comprehensive functionality – while setting new standards in accuracy and efficiency in the address management marketplace.”</p>
<p>QuickAddress Version 4.0 will be supplied to all current QuickAddress Version 3.0 users as part of their ongoing licensing agreement.</p>
<p>QuickAddress Version 4.0 now delivers accurate address capture and verification for up to 10.6 million postal addresses in Australia and 300 million in 15 of the world’s developed economies, based on data secured from national postal authorities.</p>
<p>Like its predecessors, the new version continues to tie-in with other data sets where required, such as geographical information systems (GIS), Census Collection District files, Relations Code and Descriptive data, Mosaic Codes and Descriptions, GCD Latitude/ CCDS Longitude level data and GHS Latitude/Longitude Household level data.</p>
