This document gives an overview of Address_Cleanse.
The Address_Cleanse Data Quality Suite is a global address verification and standardization application designed to confirm address information for companies and individuals entered in Oracle. The application will specifically compare street, city, state, postal code, and ZIP +4 information stored in the Oracle database against United States Postal Service records.
This service is intended to prevent the storage of inaccurate information which may be caused by data entry mistakes, misspellings, missing apartment numbers, an unrecorded change of address, etc.
Address_Cleanse is currently in use by several departments in a number of UW System campuses. Users will know whether they are eligible to use this application.
The application interfaces with the Oracle database and runs on Windows Server 2008. It is compatible with all supported browsers.
Address_Cleanse will primarily be used during regular business hours (M-F, 8am-5pm), although it technically can be run 24x7.
This application is only available on machines capable of connecting to the Oracle database.
