Data hygiene is essential to a well-functioning database. It's also essential to make sure you're not wasting money! Mailings sent to old or incomplete addresses unnecessarily divert funds.
Through an integration, your database can compared with publicly-available information and updated to be accurate. In particular, an NCOA update provides new addresses, supplied to USPS, for any existing accounts in your database who have relocated.
Updated address are imported into NeonCRM in USPS format. This format abbreviates street type designations and cardinal directions and includes a 9-digit zip code. Apartments and other additional address data is included in Address Line 1. An example of how an updated address would look in Neon is below:

- Can this service be used for Canadian and/or international addresses?
- Unfortunately, no. This service only works for United States addresses. Canadian and international addresses will be ignored in the scan.
- What data will be used to determine if an address needs to be updated?
- The TrueGivers & NeonCRM integration pulls First Name, Last Name, Address, City, State/Province, and five-digit Zip fields. The data in those fields will be used to determine if there are more up-to-date addresses, deceased data, and enhancement data for your account records.
- If a more up-to-date address is found for an account record, what will happen to the old address in NeonCRM?
- The TrueGivers & NeonCRM integration adds the more up-to-date address to the account record as the primary address. The old address is archived. The TrueGivers & NeonCRM integration never deletes any data.
- How will I know which addresses were updated by the address update?
- Within your TrueGivers account, you can see an Input Data Report and a Mailing Address Report.
- Does the service update secondary addresses in my NeonCRM system?
- The TrueGivers & NeonCRM integration updates the primary address of all individual accounts and the address of the primary contact on all company accounts. Secondary addresses and secondary contact addresses are not updated.
- What does deceased information tell me?
- A "deceased match" occurs when the TrueGivers & NeonCRM integration identifies one of your records on one of multiple sources including: consumer opt-in, Social Security Administration, and other public web sources. When the data is synchronized to your database, it's pushed into Custom Fields. Additionally, we provide three deceased fields: Deceased Type, Deceased Date, and Deceased Link. These provide information for you to confirm the deceased data. Individual matches indicate that there was a Full name + Address match. Household matches indicate that there was a Last Name + Address match
- Not all deceased records may be matched depending on the input data and the data available in the source. This may include records with too many matches, non-unique names, missing address or name details or other variations that make the confidence too low to pinpoint a match. If you have a record that is invalid for either no match or is simply the incorrect person, please send the full details to firstname.lastname@example.org.
