Explanation of the matching algorithm used by Verimove when processing input records

Products Affected:  Verimove
Verimove 'move-update' processing requires an input record that has been CASS-coded, In addition to name information, CASS-coded address (includes 5-digit ZIP and  +4 ZIP information in the record) and city/state information, all of these components will be in the record that is to be submitted for 'move-update' processing.
  • Verimove first uses the ZIP5/ZIP4 information to query the NCOALink database; if there is a match, Verimove secondly uses name-elements (last) to query the NCOALink database; if there is a match, Verimove next determines if the move-data in the NCOALink database is entered as Individual, Family, or Business (i.e. Forwarding Type Code).
  • If the file is entered as an "I" type-code (Individual), then other name elements are analyzed (first, middle, and any title/suffix, etc.) before the output 'moved' information is posted and processing moves to the next record.
  • If 'type-code' is other than "I" type-code (Business, Family, etc.), then there is no further requirement for name-processing and move-data is posted and processing continues with next record.

This description applies for any job/file/definition as it relates to the Verimove "move-update" processing logic.
