ANCHOR’s Canadian Residential Data is compiled from Canadian Directory files from all the provinces. The file is updated monthly and contains approximately 12MM residential records and 2.1MM Business records used for reverse append matching.
The official Canadian National Do-Not-Call List (NDNCL) which came into effect on Sept 30th 2008 should be utilized by telemarketers for DNC suppression.
Merge/Purge is the process that provides for updating, deleting and retaining duplicate and/or unique records within a single file or across multiple files. Our years of experience handling Canadian data make us one of the few US companies skilled in this process.
We have developed a flexible matching strategy that uses either exact matching or some percentage of exactness, and can be based on one field, multiple fields, and/or a subset of each field.
ANCHOR corrects and standardizes Canadian addresses to meet the Address Accuracy requirements of Canada Post. We use CPC-Software Evaluation and Recognition Program (SERP) approved address correction software to ensure that a mailing meets their address accuracy standard of at least 95%. We provide a Statement of Accuracy (SOA) for each database showing the accuracy percentage.
