Salesforce Address Validation

Accurate and standardized address data is crucial for businesses in today’s digital world. With Salesforce Address Validation, businesses can eliminate errors, improve data quality, and enhance customer experiences. One such tool is AddressTools by Proven Works. In this blog post, we’ll explore the key features and benefits of AddressTools and how it can optimize address-validation processes within Salesforce.

Comprehensive Functionality for Standard and Custom Objects

AddressTools integrates with standard Salesforce objects like leads, accounts, contacts, and contracts. Moreover, it supports custom objects and fields, allowing you to tailor the functionality to your specific business needs. Whether it’s a custom address block on an opportunity or a unique object, AddressTools has you covered.

Power Search: Effortless Address Lookup

With AddressTools’ Power Search functionality, searching for addresses becomes a breeze. Start typing the address, and the system narrows down the results to an exact match.

This feature leverages data from global postal authorities, with a focus on the renowned U.S. Postal Service. Even if an address is out of range, AddressTools presents viable options based on proximity. This ensures accurate and verified addresses are populated across fields.

Standardization and Customization

AddressTools offers powerful features to standardize and customize address values. State codes like “NY” are automatically converted to their full names like “New York,” while country codes such as “US” are transformed to “United States.”

Users can choose to store the full names or codes as per their preference. Additionally, alternate values can be stored alongside standardized ones, ensuring flexibility for diverse integration requirements.

Advanced Data Population

In addition to basic address fields, AddressTools populates other vital information for a comprehensive address profile. The address status feature indicates whether an address is a verified U.S. Postal Service address.

County data is populated from the premise, including fuzzy matches based on zip codes. Custom region data can also be automatically populated based on the address values.

This enables efficient territory management and seamless flow automation.

Customizable Validation Rules

AddressTools empowers users to set up customizable validation rules to maintain data integrity. Individual address fields can be made mandatory or optional, both globally and on a per-country basis.

This level of flexibility allows businesses to enforce data consistency while accommodating specific user requirements. Validation rules can be enabled or disabled for different fields, record types, objects, users, or profiles, striking the right balance between data quality and user experience.

Automated Address Verification

AddressTools streamlines the address verification process through automation. A simple process can be configured to verify addresses that haven’t been checked automatically.

Leveraging future methods and premise-level address verification, AddressTools swiftly validates addresses in real-time. This ensures accurate data entry and minimizes manual effort.

Lightning Component for Seamless Address Management

AddressTools provides a Lightning component that can be utilized across Salesforce on any object. This component enhances user experience by allowing them to verify or edit addresses directly on the detail page.
