MetaBot component that can be integrated into a task bot requiring address scrubbing/validation using FREE USPS service. Fully documented with debugging and parametrized architecture for ease of use and portability.
This MetaBot is fully documented in the included PDF file. This MetaBot requires a USPS Web Tools user account. The account is free and can be obtained from the following site https://www.usps.com/business/web-tools-apis/welcome.htm
Key Use Case: - Validate a new lead address information: Leads received via web or third-party resources do not always guarantee accurate address info. Use this MetaBot to validate and properly format a new lead address before adding it to your CRM. - Validate an Address prior to submitting a shipping transaction. - Validate an address prior to calling a Google Maps API to ensure accurate results. - Validate an address prior to adding a contact record to Outlook contacts etc.
