Minimise risk

Deploying new solutions into your environment(s) can be a time consuming process, often involving the co-ordination of resource from many different departments and with varying degrees of risk.

QAS Professional Services can assist with every stage of deployment including:

  • initial product installation into a development environment
  • assisting your developers with integration work
  • migrating a solution from one environment to another

The benefits of assistance from one of our team include reduced implementation time and minimal risk of disruption or downtime during the process.


Our Consultants evaluate your Experian QAS software to check that every element has been integrated correctly. Key tests are undertaken to:

  • assess how the solution performs against potential data concerns, such as long words, special characters and recoded postcodes
  • guarantee accurate contact data is returned
  • ensure configuration is appropriate and the interation is resilient, scalable and seamless

Your own business processes are taken into account and an impartial view is given on whether the solution is:

  • user-friendly and intuitive
  • appropriate for your audience

Postal Data in the Republic of Ireland can be a challenge to capture accurately, as a single address may have many valid variants.
