Melissa Data Partners With NetzTurm GmbH to Offer Real-Time Global Address Verification to Shopware Users

Online Merchants Can Now Verify and Correct Worldwide Customer Addresses; Better Customer Data Reduces Shipping Costs and Eliminates Online Fraud

RANCHO SANTA MARGARITA, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/25/14 -- Melissa Data, a leading provider of contact data quality and integration solutions, today announced a new data quality plug-in for users of Shopware, ensuring powerful contact data quality for e-commerce applications. The Shopware plug-in enables online merchants to verify and correct addresses as they are entered, validating information from more than 240 countries and territories in real-time. The plug-in is based on Melissa Data's Global Address Verification capabilities and was developed by NetzTurm GmbH, a service provider for the implementation of online stores, search engine optimization and web design. The two firms are now engaged in an exclusive partnership for data quality in Shopware-based ecommerce sites.

Online merchants can instantly validate and cleanse international addresses, correcting and standardizing them into the official postal format of each geographic locale, and adding missing components such as postal codes or region. Data fields are populated automatically using an efficient type-ahead feature that auto-completes entries after the first few digits or letters have been entered. Data entry is not only correct, but also up to 50 percent faster with reduced keystrokes, improving the customer's online experience and increasing website conversions.

"With data quality integrated into Shopware, online shoppers have only one step between shopping cart and checkout, which can drastically reduce the drop-off rate during the checkout process. Bad data is eliminated at the source, improving the customer's overall shopping experience with faster, easier order entry and fewer delivery errors," said Gary Van Roekel, COO, Melissa Data. "For the online merchant, accurate shipping and billing information is everything -- reducing online fraud, enabling smooth operations and ensuring the best overall customer service."

In addition to ensuring lower shipping costs, timely deliveries and lower return rates, better customer data also improves the success rate of merchants' direct marketing activities. The solution also supports online shops in reaching new markets and customer groups. Both Melissa Data and NetzTurm also plan to develop further joint plug-in technologies for other e-commerce platforms in the future.

Click here to download the Shopware data quality plug-in, available as a stand-alone product, or bundled with "One-Page-Checkout" from NetzTurm. The plug-in is available at a net price of 759 EUR including 5,000 queries valid for one year and the auto-completion feature for international addresses.

In recent years, containers have taken the world by storm. Companies of all sizes and industries have realized the massive benefits of containers, such as unprecedented mobility, higher hardware utilization, and increased flexibility and agility; however, many containers today are non-persistent.

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm.
Back in February of 2017, Andrew Clay Schafer of Pivotal tweeted the following: “seriously tho, the whole software industry is stuck on deployment when we desperately need architecture and telemetry.” Intrigue in a 140 characters. For me, I hear Andrew saying, “we’re jumping to step 5 before we’ve successfully completed steps 1-4.”
All organizations that did not originate this moment have a pre-existing culture as well as legacy technology and processes that can be more or less amenable to DevOps implementation. That organizational culture is influenced by the personalities and management styles of Executive Management, the wider culture in which the organization is situated, and the personalities of key team members at all levels of the organization. This culture and entrenched interests usually throw a wrench in the work...
