Lob started 7 years ago with our print & mail API, but we kept hearing from customers that ensuring addresses are valid and actually deliverable is a huge challenge. In fact, we found that with one customer, in particular, nearly 25% of their mail was being sent to undeliverable addresses! As a result, the Address Verification API was born. We spent almost 2 years achieving what’s called CASS certification by USPS which validates the accuracy of our software, and when we passed the test - they told us Lob was the first new company in nearly a decade to pass it.
Lob’s Address Verification API verifies that addresses are actually deliverable TO AVOID sending mail to undeliverable addresses and cutting major costs for companies. The API ensures addresses adhere to required postal formatting and automatically corrects addresses when they are incorrectly formatted.
Lob was built by technical co-founders with a vision to make the world programmable. We offer two flagship APIs (print & mail and address verification) that enable companies to send postal mail as effortlessly as sending emails. Lob is venture-backed by the most reputable investors in tech, and we are rapidly growing our team to shape the future of our company and meet the demands of a quickly growing customer base and dynamic product offerings.
