Developer Guide for DOTS Lead Enhancement Plus - Top-quality data cleansing and enrichment services including address verification, name validation, email verification, and more
DOTS Lead Enhancement Plus(also referred to as LEP) is a publicly available XML web service that is designed to enhance, embellish and append additional elements to good leads. This service enhances the contact information with an emphasis on appending.
This composite service takes as completely optional inputs: Name, email, phone number, address1, address2, city, region, country, and IP address. The idea for this service is "do what you can with the data you are given". This service makes use of many "ala carte" services provided by Service Objects, Inc to validate and append as best possible.
This service works for both US and Canadian leads. Address and phone information is only available for US and Canada so other international leads will not work correctly. International names, emails and IPs are acceptable.
