SERP Overview

How to run SERP certified verification

There are two ways to run the SERP certified certification in the Loqate Engine:

I. You may invoke the SERP certification process for Canada directly by adding the process “SERP” to the process-list.
In batch mode, run lqtbatch with the process set as “serp”. lqtbatch also generates a SERP address accuracy report, which defaults to_summary.txt. You may specify a name for the address accuracy report as follows:

lqtbatch … -p serp … [-r mysummaryfile.txt]

II. You may invoke the certification process by calling the “verify” process while setting the server-option “CertifiedCountryList” to “CAN” – this will internally invoke the SERP process for Canadian addresses in your dataset. As we extend our certification process support to other countries, you will be able to specify the countries for which you want to run the certified process (as opposed to the Loqate “verify” process) through comma-separated list of country code values for the “CertifiedCountryList” option.

Please note: At this time, SERP is only compatible with Win32, Win64, Lin32, and Lin64

SERP process requires the following fields as input,

Address1, Address2 (optional), Locality (optional), AdministrativeArea (optional), PostalCode(optional), and Country.
