BOSTON, MA--(Marketwire -06/13/12)- Experian® QAS®, a part of Experian Marketing Services and a leading provider of address verification software and services, today announced that the Supervisor of Elections Office in Leon County, Fla., has implemented QAS Pro to validate address information for registered voters. The agency expects address verification to reduce costs, improve staff efficiency and enhance the overall voter experience.
"We were not entering our addresses according to USPS® standards, which prevented us from qualifying for additional mailing discounts," said Chris Moore, GIS/demographics manager at the Supervisor of Elections Office in Leon County, Fla. "With the new software, we are not only USPS-compliant, but we can ensure the validity of addresses as they are entered. This helps to ensure the accuracy of voter addresses for precinct assignment and makes certain that absentee ballots are delivered in a timely manner."
QAS Pro helps reduce the amount of keystrokes needed to enter an address and prompts users for missing information. This enables the county to ensure data quality from information entered by temporary workers around election cycles with little training.
"Accurate contact data is essential for any government agency," said David Northridge, vice president of client retention, Experian QAS. "Utilizing point-of-capture software, agencies can improve overall staff efficiency by collecting the right information as it is being entered and ensure better service to constituents -- especially during busy election cycles."
