Bell and Howell, LLC, provider of BCC postal and data quality solutions that optimize client communications, announces the release of the Accurant AIX 64 platform. It joins Win32, Win64 and Linux 64 as the available options for this multiplatform solution. Accurant is Bell and Howell’s premier address validation and standardization solution.

 Accurant helps to eliminate data errors at the point of capture by confirming address records against the most current USPS reference data, and by cleansing the data when run in batch mode. Supporting multiple inputs and outputs in a single run, addresses are standardized and enhanced with ZIP code, carrier route, delivery point and other information. It alerts users to non-validated addresses and supplies possible reasons why addresses are undeliverable.

 Users can enter addresses quickly by leveraging Accurant’s express entry feature, which gives location suggestions in real time as addresses are entered through a Web-based interface. When addresses are entered incorrectly, Accurant returns with a list of suggested addresses. This helps the company and its customers by safeguarding databases against incorrectly entered addresses, and ensuring that products ordered are delivered promptly and accurately.
