NovaLIS Technologies Selects Group 1 Software to Add Value to Their Software Solutions
Tuesday, October 19, 2004
LANHAM, Md., Oct. 18 -- Group 1 Software, a wholly- owned subsidiary of Pitney Bowes Inc., today announced that NovaLIS Technologies is integrating Group 1's data quality technology to provide important value-added functionality within their product offerings. This additional functionality will give NovaLIS' customers verified and enriched customer data for use in their applications. NovaLIS, based in Charlotte, North Carolina, is a leading provider of land information management products to government entities. "Our new partnership with Group 1 will enable us to provide more robust addressing functionality to our customers," says NovaLIS President/CEO Gary Waters. "We are already accomplishing this goal by integrating their very powerful mailing address verification tool with our software in a number of existing customer sites." To date, NovaLIS has integrated a component of Group 1's software with its land records management products. This integration enables NovaLIS customers to enter a Zip Code, and have the City and State information automatically populated. Upon saving the account record, the full mailing address is verified against the United States Postal Service (USPS) database provided by Group 1's CODE-1 Plus technology. System administrators have the option to allow an invalid address to be saved with warning or have the system force the end user to fix the address prior to being saved. The next step in integrating NovaLIS and Group 1 technology will include sorting mail in the proper order and providing certification for the USPS mailing discount. This will enable NovaLIS customers to qualify for postal discounts which could save them thousands of dollars annually. Future integration will leverage more of the Group 1 product base to provide every level of government utilizing the NovaLIS product suite with added features such as early warning of address changes, new addresses for approved subdivisions, and tax district identification. "We are delighted that NovaLIS chose Group 1 technology to integrate into their industry-leading products," said Bob Bowen, President of Group 1 Software. "We are proud to be able to add value to their already outstanding line of software solutions and are looking forward to our future integration efforts."
