Melissa Data Set to Launch Canadian Change of Address as a Web Service

By Admound Chou
Product Development Manager, Data Quality Solutions

Previously, our SmartMover Web Service handled only USPS® change-of-address processing. But SmartMover just got even better. SmartMover will now have the ability to perform Canadian Change of Address (CCOA) processing. In the past, CCOA processing was only available through our Data Enhancement Services (DES) department. Now you will be able to process U.S. and Canadian moves at any given time, as well as integrate it with existing applications.

Additionally, XML, REST, and JSON protocols will be available with this new version of CCOA as well. Please contact your product specialist at 1-800-MELISSA (635-4772) for more information.
