VeriMove business name matching algorithm

Product Affected: VeriMove


 
VeriMove's Business Name matching algorithm consists of first, checking if there is a move on file for the input address.  Second, VeriMove applies fuzzy matching to standardize the name of the company provided in the USPS data.

Currently, the USPS does not have a rule as to how tight or loose this matching can be.  VeriMove's logic is hard-coded to 65%. Sixty-Five percent of the name must match to be considered a match.  If the business name does not meet the required 65%, VeriMove will not return a match.
