What is Address IQ?
Firstlogic Address IQ (AIQ) is self-managed server software that provides USPS® CASS address cleansing, NCOA change of address, geocoding, and mail deliverability transforms for the United States. Configure the settings for your batch processing jobs using our native no-code interface, or your own text editor. Alternatively, build your own custom workflow by integrating directly with the optional SDK. Available as a self-managed product, AIQ can be run on-premise or deployed on your cloud provider.
Pay by license, not by record. You won't be surprised by usage fees. Our annual subscription includes the software license, maintenance, and technical support - all in one fee.
We provide you the software, directories, and know-how to install and manage the software on your own infrastructure.
Your data never leaves your infrastructure - records are processed entirely offline. Easily comply with privacy best practices and regulations.
Direct access to Microsoft SQL Server, MySQL, Oracle RDBMS, ASCII, delimited, dBase3, or EBCDIC flat files.

Address-Level Geocoding.Address-Level Geocoding converts physical addresses into latitude and longitude coordinates using multiple industry leading geocoding directory providers.

What reports are provided by Address IQ?
Address IQ provides several canned reports. The three main reports include:
- Job Summary (*.ajs) report. The job summary report will provide you with statistics about the job as far as the number of records input, standardized, corrected, elements appended, and results from the optional ACE modules that were enabled.
- USPS Form 3553 (CASS certificate) that in many situations is still required with the mailing when submitted to the USPS .
- Error Report. This is an columnar report that details which records could not be assigned within the USPS postal directories, and what error code (reason) was given for not being able
to make the assignment.
If these reports do not give you the level of detail that you are looking for, you can generate statistics files. These statistics files can be generated in either an ASCII or Dbase3 format that you can then use to generate any type of report.
