It costs organizations substantial amounts of money to not have a “verify and cleanse” solution in place for validating contact data. With that in mind, let’s examine some of Melissa's industry-leading, flexible Web APIs that help you achieve contact data quality in real-time.
Service Objects' DOTS Name Validation 2 (NV2) API addresses the problem of false names within contact lists. NV2 uses the latest research to allow businesses to weed out fraudulent names at the point-of-entry. The new NV2 service is offered in two different ways to validate – real time API to work with online forms and connected applications and batch file mode for large list processing.
Twilio SendGrid's Email Validation API is now publicly available. The API validates email addresses by searching in real-time for errors such as typos, inactive, non-existent, disposable and shared mailboxes. Further, the API checks for proper syntax, DNS records, disposable domains, and more.
