Melissa, a leading provider of global contact data quality and identity verification solutions, today expanded its partnership with Runner Technologies (Runner EDQ), a leading provider of integrated address verification solutions and Platinum level member of the Oracle Partner Network (OPN). Together the two firms deliver CLEAN_Address, an Oracle-validated, integrated address verification solution for PeopleSoft Enterprise, JD Edwards EnterpriseOne, and E-Business Suite platforms.
To achieve Oracle Validated Integration, Oracle partners are required to meet a stringent set of requirements that are based on the needs and priorities of Oracle customers. With this integration, CLEAN_Address can meet the needs of users to capture and maintain accurate address and contact data in a broad spectrum of markets, including healthcare, finance, travel and transportation, government, and higher education. Joint customers include Simon & Shuster, McKesson Corp., and the U.S. Small Business Administration.
“Today’s data-driven enterprise demands enterprise-grade data quality infrastructure – this is essential for successful master data management, data integration, and data aggregation,” said Bud Walker, vice president, enterprise sales and strategy, Melissa. “The collaboration between Melissa and Runner EDQ meets this need with the integration of postal address verification, email verification, and other data enhancements, ideal for systems such as human capital management, student information, financial, vendor management systems, and CRM platforms.”
“Achieving Oracle Validated Integration gives all our customers the confidence that integration between CLEAN_Address and Oracle is functionally sound and performs as tested,” said Greg Marinello, CEO, Runner EDQ. “By combining efforts and capitalizing on Melissa’s global toolset and authoritative reference datasets, we’re empowering Oracle users to directly engage with data quality, enabling them to cleanse, update, and enrich their existing and incoming data throughout the data lifecycle.”
CLEAN_Address also includes an API for custom development, allowing users to create business rules that enforce individual data quality standards.
