Additional enhancements designed to deliver more user-friendly functionality and data processing capabilities

Boston, Mass., Feb. 22, 2010 — Experian® QAS®, a leading provider of address verification software and services, and CedarCrestone, a leading consulting firm specializing in the deployment, management and optimization of Oracle applications and technology, today announced a project to enhance QAS products within PeopleSoft Campus Solutions and Human Capital Management.

“These enhancements are the direct result of conversations with our clients, who requested additional functionality to better support critical business functions. The timing is also important, as a number of colleges and universities are evaluating address validation vendors for their version 9.0 PeopleSoft applications,” said David Northridge, director of customer retention at Experian QAS.

The new QAS for PeopleSoft interface has been overhauled to improve usability and to seamlessly conform to the PeopleSoft environment. The upcoming release also will integrate the QAS Batch functionality into the PeopleSoft tables so that users can clean existing records without ever leaving their enterprise resource planning system.

“We are pleased to enhance the Experian QAS higher-education software with improved online and batch address verification capabilities. This new functionality should help colleges and universities improve key business processes, which continue to be a critical focus of our higher-education consulting and hosting services,” said Jim Lyon, CedarCrestone general manager of higher education.

Experian QAS and CedarCrestone anticipate the release of these new features in early March 2010.
