(NYSE: HHS), a worldwide, direct and targeted marketing company, today announced the availability of ADQ Direct(TM), an online portal that leverages the strength of Harte-Hanks Advanced Data Quality (ADQ), a service for verifying, correcting and enhancing multichannel contact information of customers and prospects. ADQ Direct provides all of the functionality and flexibility of ADQ through an easy-to-use Web interface that gives Harte-Hanks clients rapid access to sophisticated data quality and enhancement capabilities in a self-service environment.
By design, ADQ Direct enables companies to enhance the quality of their data to support the delivery of marketing and relationship communications across all media channels, such as direct mail, phone and e-mail.

And because it delivers high quality contact information, ADQ Direct enables more accurate analytics and segmentation to help companies enhance their customer knowledge.
"We've designed ADQ Direct for those companies seeking to optimize the accuracy of customer contact information within their internal data warehouses," said Kathy Calta, corporate officer and senior vice president, Harte-Hanks. "With this Web-based solution, our clients have access to what we believe to be an optimal combination of licensed postal products, proprietary data quality sources, and the best third-party sources commercially available, which provides them with current, accurate multichannel contact information.
We do all of this in a self-service environment available on demand." ADQ Direct's interface provides the do-it-yourself power, simplicity, and control that information technology (IT) and marketing professionals want, while providing an affordable, solid, low-risk foundation for customer and prospect relationship management.
