La Poste confirms certification of Uniserv

Uniserv re-certified by La Poste including HEXACLE and HEXALIGNE 3

Pforzheim, 15.10.2014 – Uniserv GmbH, the expert in successful customer data management with Smart Customer MDM with its headquarters in Pforzheim and subsidiaries in Paris, France, and Amsterdam, Holland, has passed the re-certification audit of the French post office, La Poste, for the data quality functions for standardization and structuring and the postal validation of addresses from France to the full extent, both for Unix and Windows. In turn, users have confirmation that they can be absolutely certain of meeting the addressing requirements of the French post office when using the Uniserv products through to September 2016. They thereby profit above all from lower postage rates as well as from guaranteed and preferential delivery of the respective items.

Uniserv - La Poste Certification - 2014

The certification itself is carried out by the SNA (Service National de l’Adresse). Apart from HEXAVIA as a reference file for French streets and HEXAPOSTE, the reference file for French postcodes and CEDEX codes, the certification includes HEXACLE (reference file for French house numbers) and HEXALIGNE 3 as a reference file for secondary address unit designators or designations of geographical positions. Uniserv therefore continues to be virtually the only provider of data quality functions for France which is fully certified for all the tasks relating to RNVP (restructuration, normalisation, validation postale) for the market in France.

Users from France as well as those from outside France who wish to reliably edit and process their address data for the French market profit in many respects. On the one hand, end customers can be accurately identified and written to, because the complete data can be validated down to the level of the house number and the surname of the addressee and corrected if necessary. This means a lower return rate as a result of a precise approach and therefore a sustained reduction in the costs. Furthermore, the obtainable postage discounts have an additional positive impact. This is an aspect which is of particular interest for mass mailings.

"We are pleased that we have again received the certification to the full extent, i.e. for HEXACLE and HEXALIGNE 3 as well as HEXAVIA and HEXAPOSTE", says Roland Pfeiffer, CEO of Uniserv. "Uniserv therefore remains an established and, above all, reliable player for all companies in France and naturally for companies which look to France."
