Melissa's Improvements in Dynamics CRM

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Dirty data, in all forms, is bad for business. Here at Melissa, our primary concern is cleansing it from all of your platforms, including Microsoft Dynamics® CRM. Melissa currently offers many solutions for Dynamics CRM in order to combat problems with bad data.

 

We offer the Personator® solution in order to cleanse and enrich your U.S. and Canadian data. We offer the Global Verify solution to correct and verify your addresses, phone numbers, names, and email addresses on an international level. Soon, we will release the Express Entry® solution in order to prevent bad data from entering your environment. As we strive to offer you the best solutions, Melissa constantly seeks to improve its solutions to better suit your needs.

 

Coming in a future update, we will offer the following new features to our Express Entry service:


•          Personator Workflows

•          Reverse Lookup for Express Entry

•          Express Entry Integration into Global Verify

Personator Workflows

Dynamics CRM is utilized in many different ways in the business world. The creation of contact, account, and lead records is handled through many different environments that may not leverage the standard form. In addition, sometimes users may forget to use our services to cleanse and correct information before saving and storing a record. 


To address these issues, we have created workflows for the Personator solution for the currently supported out-of-box entities. These workflows can be activated to leverage our Personator service on records automatically, such as upon creation of a new record. This will allow users to create records from a different environment, such as a separate portal, to have their information automatically validated through our workflows.

 

Reverse Lookups for Express Entry

Different users enter address information in different orders. With Dynamics CRM's ability to customize forms, it is apparent that not everyone will start by entering a street address. With our new feature, Reverse Lookups, users can enter information starting from the most general piece of information down to the most specific. For example, now a user, after entering his or her default country, can begin by entering the postal code to determine the city and state of the particular record. After filling out these fields, the user can then enter in the street address and select from a list of addresses only in that particular city, state, and postal code.

 

Express Entry Integration into Global Verify

Many customers require different methods of verification. In order to address these concerns, we have integrated our Express Entry service into our Global Verify solution. Now, you can utilize the Express Entry service to autocomplete addresses when entering data as well as verify phone and email with the click of a button.

Verified and Correct Worldwide Customer Addresses Reduce Shipping Costs and Eliminate Online Fraud; Fast, Address Auto-Completion Boosts Shopper Conversion Rates


Rancho Santa Margarita, CALIF. - March 24, 2015 - Melissa Data, a leading provider of contact data quality and data integration solutions, today announced a new global address verification plugin for users of the Magento content management system for ecommerce websites. The Magento plugin was developed by Crafty Clicks, a Magento technology partner and address lookup service provider, and incorporates Melissa Data's Global Address Verification cloud service so online merchants can verify, correct, and auto-fill addresses as they are entered, validating information for more than 240 countries and territories in real-time. Crafty Clicks and Melissa Data are now engaged in an exclusive partnership enabling data quality in Magento-based ecommerce sites, with plans for continued strategic development of high-value data quality plugins for other popular ecommerce platforms.

"Melissa Data's global address capabilities complement our own expertise in UK-based address verification. Using proven solutions and without wasting development resources, Magento users can now extend the value of contact data quality across a worldwide customer base," said Adam Stylo, founder and president, Crafty Clicks. "By adding address auto-completion and post-checkout address verification to their sites, online merchants not only assure fewer lost parcels and reduced delivery support, but also increase overall usability for customers. Shopper conversions improve, boosted by a fast, accurate, and convenient checkout experience so essential to online sales."

Magento-based sites can seamlessly validate and cleanse international addresses at point of entry, correcting and standardizing them into the official postal format of each geographic locale, and adding missing components such as postal codes or region. Address fields are also populated automatically after the first few digits or letters have been entered using Melissa Data's Express Entry address auto-completion functionality. This speeds data entry with up to 50 percent fewer keystrokes; online shoppers have an improved shopping experience with just one step between shopping cart and checkout, drastically reducing the drop-off rate during the checkout process.

Web-Based Tools Significantly Improve Email Marketing With Real-Time Verification of Emailbox Deliverability


RANCHO SANTA MARGARITA, CA--(Marketwired - Jan 21, 2015) - Melissa Data, a leading provider of contact data quality and address management solutions, today announced the availability of real-time Email Mailbox Verification for its Global Email Cloud Service solution. Email Mailbox Verification helps remove up to 95 percent of bad emails in a customer database and is a critical tool in improving email deliverability. With this feature, users have a powerful new tool to help prevent bounce-backs and avoid spam traps -- protecting sender reputation from blacklisting.

Melissa Data's Global Email Cloud Service offers a flexible range of data quality operations, including the ability to add domain names, specify misspelling fixes, standardize casing of email addresses, and identify invalid domain names for suppression. Processes can be customized to individual business needs, allowing users to intelligently manage various email datasets with different levels of validation. General email formatting and syntax errors can be quickly remedied, for instance, changing an "!" to "@" or correcting ".c0m" to ".com." Top level domain (TLD) names can be validated and corrected; domains are verified against an extensive database of known good and bad domain addresses and the domain's existence is validated through MaileXchange (MX) lookup. Once a domain is determined to be valid, Email Mailbox Verification allows users to further validate that the specific emailbox exists and is deliverable.

"Ensuring email data quality has necessarily become a best practice for marketers," said Bud Walker, director of data quality solutions, Melissa Data. "The Global Email Service protects business operations with flexible, cascading data quality features that start with basic spelling and syntax, move up to domain-level verification, and then apply the gold standard in terms of verifying specific emailbox deliverability in real-time. No more lost opportunities for customer communication, mailing campaigns are more effective and resources are not wasted on direct marketing efforts that go nowhere."

Using Global Email Cloud Service, email addresses are parsed and standardized and can be validated in real-time or batch processing. By standardizing addresses as they are entered, for instance at point of sale or online guest book entry, online merchants or marketers eliminate the need for a "confirming email" field which can decrease Web form completion and conversion rates. Online fraud is reduced, while the reliability of overall contact information is improved.

Global Email Cloud Service also supports marketers in maintaining compliance with CAN-SPAM guidelines; the service is enhanced with current data defining mobile domains, so marketers can avoid sending unwanted commercial messages without prior permission from the recipient. The Global Email Service uses a simple web-based API to enable all features, and supports multiple protocols such as JSON, SOAP, XML and REST.
