In the next version of Univex Software we add support for postcode address files. These are known as the Postal Address File of NZ Post and Australia Post.
So what does this file do? All the street addresses in Australia or New Zealand are indexed in the Univex database. That means less errors when entering customer, supplier or employee data. You will always ensure the street address is in the correct suburb and has the correct post code. Whilst we have had postal databases in Univex for generations of Univex systems, the inclusion of street names adds further confidence that the data input is correct.
Whilst snail-mail direct marketing campaigns might not be so popular anymore, especially with our Univex Mail bulk e-mail service, they can still be effective with a targeted approach.
Thinking of opening up another branch? You can use the data in the Univex system to find out where customers live, how much they spend, and how far they will travel to visit in-store.
Or perhaps you merely want to plot the concentration of customers so you know where to target letterbox drops for maximum effectiveness? Having an accurate customer address database will help with that decision making.
Very soon the address validation will also be deployed to the Univex e-commerce software. This will ensure your online orders are going to a recognised address. This reduces delays in shipping and the chance of mis-deliveries, which results in happier customers!
So if your POS, e-commerce, and back office software vendor isn’t helping you reduce your workload, why not give Univex a call and we’ll help make your good business, in to a great one.
