Why your customer support team needs Address Validation
You may be asking why you’d need an address lookup and autocomplete system in your CRM. Allow us to indulge for a moment. Salesforce and other CRM platforms place a priority on speed and usability. Fast and simple-to-use features help to keep customers satisfied and, as a result, could bring about more sales. Adopting an address lookup and validation system allows your customers and customer service team to input accurate data in as few taps and clicks as possible.
Let’s take a closer look at the benefits of Fetchify’s address lookup feature…we guarantee it’s worth the read.
What is an address check and validation API?
Fetchify’s address lookup allows you to verify, repair, and update shipping addresses in your CRM. This provides a valuable experience, resulting in satisfied customers and increased sales. The address validation tool checks your customers’ addresses at point of entry and auto-fills the form with a certified and correctly formatted match, based on accurate data from Royal Mail, USPS, and other leading global address suppliers.
This address auto-complete product saves the customer and your support team time, making phone calls and visits to your site more enjoyable and encouraging return visits. In your CRM, the tool allows your team to enter customer data quickly and accurately, and also to search your database by accurate addresses, making customer service phone calls quicker and easier.
Why should you validate addresses?
There are several reasons why validation is not only important, but paramount, to business success and reputation. Having a proper address validation system not only brings peace of mind to customers but to distributors, too. Fetchify aims to:
Validate shipping addresses
Correct mistakes and errors in address input, with a properly formatted and validated shipping address at checkout, and auto-update orders before shipment. The post-checkout address validation tool for Shopify Standard-Advanced also alerts buyers that an error was fixed prior to the item being shipped.
Reduce failed shipments
The automated input of accurate address data from Royal Mail, US Postal Service, and other leading sources reduces the chances of unsuccessful deliveries and returns.
Reduce administration and costs by reducing shipment complaints and increasing customer satisfaction. Customer phone calls are also streamlined with easy and accurate data retrieval in your back-office system.
With proper addresses in place and fewer unsuccessful deliveries or returns, there’s less chance of customer complaints and other issues, leaving you with plenty of time to look after current and potential customers, as well as maintaining a smooth internal operation.
