Global-Z International was founded in 1989 as a database technology company, providing companies with customized sales and marketing database solutions. Early on, the company recognized the growing need for businesses to promote their products and services internationally. The development of international address databases had always been difficult due to inadequate validation and correction technology, or incomplete postal authority data. Global-Z was the first company to introduce worldwide address verification and correction solutions.
“Our approach involves a unique synthesis and comprehensive understanding of technology, languages and cultures — knowledge that can give you a competitive advantage in the international marketplace. Through focused training and travel programs, our employees nurture their awareness of standards and practices around the world.”
