Beyond - Address Standardization

What is Address Standardization?

Address standardization compares an address entered or changed on a record by your staff with the U.S. Postal Service standard addresses. This can be helpful to ensure the addresses in your system are accurate for tax and reporting purposes. 

Address Standardization can be set up for:

  1. Employee Permanent Address
  2. Employee Temporary Address
  3. Customer Address
  4. Customer Billing Address
  5. Worksite Address
  6. Contact Address

For each address listed above, you can choose to enable address standardization as an option or make it a requirement to use the U.S. Postal Service standardized address when adding or updating addresses.

Address Standardization Basics

If the configuration is set to optional, the staff member will be able to choose which address they want to use. If they choose the standardized address, it will update the address when they close the window. 

If the configuration is set to required, the staff member will need to choose the standardized address in order to save.

If the address can not be found in the U.S. Postal Service database, a message will appear letting you know the address has not been found:
