NIPOST Address Verification System (AVS)- Notification

As soon as the assigned agent has been contacted, they will visit the location to verify from people around and not the person being verified (with the aim to verify and not investigate too!). After this, the agent will fill out feedback notes on his app.

NIPOST Address Verification System (AVS)- NotesThis will be key in determining if the address or person is truly verifiable.

Quality Control

You may be wondering: what if the agent arbitrarily fills out a report without visiting the location?

Well, to avoid false reports, the app creators have included a feature called Geotagging to avoid fictitious reports. With this feature, the agent is required to tag the location being verified within a distance of at least 20 meters. If this is not done, the report will be red-flagged.

The agent is also required to take a picture of the location as well as append an electronic signature.

Resolving Nipost Not Verifiable Addresses

There are 3 main reasons why an address will not be verified
1 – Address does not exist
2 – Address is not accessible
3 – The candidate does not live thereNiposting Job applygist.com

Irrespective of this reasons, the agent still has to leave notes, sign and geotag but taking an image is not required.

Can Nipost AVS Work Without Internet Network

Knowing that agents may have to visit areas with poor internet network service, the app has been designed to work offline. It is designed to allow the agents to sign in, Geo-tag and take pictures off-line. It will then synchronize as soon as it is connected to an internet network.

He identified poor infrastructures such as roads, postal addresses, and utilities as some of the factors hampering the development of e-commerce in the country.

Shittu added that if the power supply and Internet connectivity were available to most rural and urban areas, the postal sector would make a significant impact.

“The issue of infrastructure…. the roads, postal addressing, ICT infrastructure, and such utilities are critical to e-commerce development. There is no gainsaying that the current situation in most developing countries remained poor,”
