Gone aways have a profound effect on businesses for many different reasons


Gone aways are a key data decay catalyst in consumer databases. Around 1 in 10 people move home each year, demonstrating the impact gone aways have on customer data management. Your business might hold a large quota of incorrect customer addresses that not only cause you to waste time and money on bad customer data, but may also result in a breach of data protection law.



Attempting to contact a gone away at a previous address is time misspent and reflects negatively on your brand; or worse opens up potential for identity fraud.
