Melissa and Runner EDQ Deliver Data Quality to Oracle Users

Melissa, a provider of global contact data quality and identity verification solutions, has expanded its partnership with Runner Technologies (Runner EDQ), a provider of integrated address verification solutions and Platinum-level member of the Oracle Partner Network (OPN).

Together, the two firms are rolling out 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, the companies say, 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.

Enterprise-grade data quality infrastructure is essential for successful master data management, data integration, and data aggregation, said Bud Walker, vice president, enterprise sales and strategy, Melissa, noting the expanded collaboration between Melissa and Runner EDQ enables integration of postal address verification, email verification, and other data enhancements, making it well suited for systems such as human capital management, student information, financial, vendor management systems, and CRM platforms.  

CLEAN_Address also includes an API for custom development, allowing users to create business rules that enforce individual data quality standards.

Detailed information on CLEAN_Address and access to a free trial is available here.
