Save money

If your organisation, like most, has a vast array of different address databases scattered throughout its departments the costs can start to add up: database licensing, server maintenance and multiple departments trying to keep these databases up to date. SinglePoint can remove these costs, saving your staff time and money.

Increase Efficiency

By providing the ability for multiple address databases to be included, SinglePoint enables shared services between multiple organisations to be embraced, reducing costs and increasing efficiency.

From the colour and layout through to the search criteria, SinglePoint can be customized to look, feel and work exactly how you want it to.

SinglePoint has countless methods of use:

  • Combination with a names database to give access to both names and addresses

Fully Compatible with AddressBase Premium

AddressBase Premium is the most accurate and up to date dataset available. It contains over 40 million entries, each one featuring a Unique Property Reference Number (UPRN). Since no UPRN can ever be used twice, even when a property no longer exists, ensuring no duplication. SinglePoint can give every department in an organisation access to AddressBase Premium records and through the use of the UPRN, each user can be assured of consistent accuracy throughout the organisation.

Use the Singlepoint Web Service to embed address searching into your existing applications, eliminating the need to switch between systems to search for address data.

  • Royal Mail PAF
  • Key holder information

Feedback for user notification of address omissions or errors

If configured to an SMTP mail server then users can use the feedback link to report gazetteer errors to the configured custodian.

By having SinglePoint installed centrally it eliminates the need for different Address databases, and with that, the need for multiple licensing and server maintenance costs. It also reduces the time each department has to spend maintaining their own records, as everything is stored centrally, meaning their time can be spent on more beneficial tasks.

As well as being installed onsite, SinglePoint is also available as a hosted solution, giving you the same level of service, but without the initial set up costs.

Designed with GIS in Mind

Designed with GIS in Mind

The use of GIS in both the Public and Private sector is becoming increasingly important, yet it is still limited to a few departments. With the benefits it can bring, SinglePoint has been designed with multiple departments and GIS in mind

Find out more

The use of GIS in organisations is rapidly changing and expanding, but it is still restricted to a limited amount of departments. SinglePoint has been designed with GIS in mind to maximize the benefits that can be gained from its use.

Address data sources contain a geocode alongside the address, which enables a property’s location to be sourced on a map using GIS. SinglePoint has been designed to work with any 3rd party web mapping solution, both commercial and open source, giving all users access to the spatial visualization of the data. The results are also fully customizable, regardless of whether you’re using Bing, Google Maps, MapInfo or another 3rd party application, subject to the appropriate mapping licenses you hold.

Web Services and Integration

Web Services and Integration

Singlepoint also facilitates integration with other key systems through the use of web services. Whether you’re looking for a postcode lookup dropdown on a form/web page or for a complex geographic lookup search – SinglePoint has the Web Services you are looking for.

Web Services

SinglePoint can be embedded into your own web pages to enable address searching across an organization, eliminating the need for every user to have the application installed. This is facilitated by the SOAP Web service which allows external systems to connect to SinglePoint to do address searches and lookups. These Web Services allow for users to search the data without being able to edit it, reducing the risk of users accidentally comprising the data.

Integration

Along with external systems, SinglePoint can be integrated with other Aligned Assets modules. SinglePoint can act as a searching tool with our Gazetteer Management modules iManage and Bluelight as well as being integrated with our Address matching and cleansing module iMatch.
