AddressAccelerator and AddressFinder are different solutions depending on what information is needed.
AddressFinder returns information on constituents who have moved or are now undeliverable. This process is done through the Data Health Center in Raiser's Edge or by sending Blackbaud an Excel file with the names, addresses, and ID's of the records that need to be run. AddressFinder complies with the USPS Move Update Standard (BB455852) where records need to have NCOA run within 95 days of a mailing.
AddressAccelerator is a set of files that you load locally to standardize addresses as they are entered. These can either be found on the Downloads page of the Blackbaud website or we can send a DVD to your organization. AddressAccelerator does not include address changes for constituents who have moved. For more information, refer to What is AddressAccelerator? (BB81717)
