STANDARDIZATION AND REFORMATTING PROCESSING
Data reliability is not only about the postal components of your customers' data, but also about the other elements.
Treatment of courtesies
This is done using a table of 125,000 elements against countries of origin, which allows the separation of surname and first name if they are entered together, in order to assign a 'civil status' code.

All countries combined, there are 1,236,000 cases of enrichment of different civilities, depending on the person's first name and country.
Structure and reformatting of the email
- Email address: we check its structure, validating the presence of the essential elements for its routing (arobase, extension....)
Structure and reformatting of the telephone or fax number worldwide
- Telephone/fax number: A suitable treatment makes it possible to standardise them, and to identify whether it is a fixed or mobile line.
We reformat telephone and/or fax numbers according to the local standard in the country.
The process is based on the international telephone and fax number repository.
This repository contains the ISO country codes, the English and French country names, the international dialling code, the length and format of telephone and fax numbers, the internet extension and the geographical area.
By creating algorithms with specific profiles, telephone and fax numbers can be reformatted.
Please note that this is a reformatting to the local standard and not a correction of these fax numbers, i.e. it is a check that the length and formatting of the number is correct for the country.
