March 28th 2011: WorldAddresses.com, the provider of online international address lookup software, has been selected by Just Kampers – an organisation specialising in the sourcing and delivery of classic VW Camper van parts, accessories and insurance – with the aim to speed up the online purchasing process by 30%. By specifically focusing on reducing the billing and delivery address detail data entry time, Just Kampers is confident they can speed up the overall checkout process, which will enhance their online customers’ experience of the website.
With World Addresses Web, online customers need only enter their postcodes, rather than their full addresses when entering their delivery details, thus speeding up the checkout process overall. This process has now been made quicker and more efficient by deployment of World Addresses Web, which enters the data for them.
Launched 21 years ago, Just Kampers had previously used an address lookup service which offered UK-based address data only. Wanting to expand and begin international trading, Just Kampers needed to provide as equally robust and accommodating a functionality for its international customer base as its domestic one. Just Kampers’ Spanish, French, Italian and Dutch websites were therefore all launched in late 2010, with World Addresses Web fully installed and operational.
Ashley Swatton, IT Director at Just Kampers, comments, “Having used a UK-based address lookup service prior to World Addresses Web, we already appreciated just how much of an impact such a service had on the usability of our domestic website. It was therefore essential that with our expansion, this attention to detail was mirrored in our international sites. In order for the new launches to be successful however, we had to be assured of the reliability of the software and the comprehensive nature of the data underpinning it. World Addresses Web was by far the most suitable solution for us, with a high quality software product, convenient billing structure and also a particularly wide range of countries with accurate data. This will mean that should further countries become targets for us, World Addresses.com will be able to expand with us with ease.”
World Addresses Web is a hosted, cloud-based application allowing e-tailers to provide customers with a quick and easy method with which to enter both domestic and international address entry through online postcode-based verification.
World Addresses Web provides Just Kampers with trusted address information for a host of countries, making the checkout process quicker and more efficient for their ever expanding international customer base. Simply by entering a postcode, the customer can select their desired delivery address from a drop down list which automatically enters their address data, thus speeding up the checkout process. Just Kampers’ telesales staff can also be confident when completing sales over the phone, as the address lookup software ensures address validation. This means that when Just Kampers dispatch items, they can be confident that they are delivered to the correct address first time, reducing the potential risk of redelivery costs and delay.
Swatton continues, “WorldAddresses.com is also willing and able to source data for additional countries that we suggest to them, meaning that should we identify a strong market in a territory not currently served by World Addresses Web’s data, WorldAddresses.com will rapidly develop a product specifically for us.”
Emma Gooderham, Managing Director of WorldAddresses.com, explains, “There are 195 countries in the world and to produce datasets and products for each one of these simultaneously would be a hugely arduous task. We therefore actively engage with our customers to guide us as to which countries we should tackle first. Whilst our development of new territories is of course an ongoing process, some of our customers require particular countries sooner than we may have anticipated or scheduled, in which case, we are perfectly happy and more than flexible enough to immediately re-prioritise.”
