Symphony Blackbox gives users control over their address data exports. Through automation, filtering and scheduling, users can tailor their exports to whatever parameters they wish, giving peace of mind that their data will be sent out to those who require it.
In most instances Symphony Blackbox will be used to update departmental address data with the most recent changes (change-only-updates). However there are instances in which only certain types of address data will require export, or certain departments will require only subsets of the data.
To facilitate this, Symphony Blackbox has various filter settings that enable full flexibility for data deployment by configuring the recipients to receive only the address data exports that they want.
Automation is essential in today’s fast-paced world and anything that can minimise human interaction is a desirable commodity.
Fundamental to Symphony Blackbox is that it not only ensures that all departments are using the most up to date address data, but importantly that the process of updating is almost entirely automated. Key to it is the simple ‘set and forget’ functionality, which means once you have set up who receives what, and when they receive it, all you need to do is run the process once and Blackbox will automatically do the rest.
In addition to automatically updating your systems, it will also automatically generate and send out emails to the recipients, as well as giving access to a full, complete audit trail of those notifications, which can be found in the repository folder location. It is then easy to review results that have been previously sent to individual recipients.
In order to make your integration as simple as possible, Symphony Blackbox comes with a Scheduled Importer that will recognise when you have exported your gazetteer data and automatically import it for distribution across the council.
Loading your gazetteer data into the Symphony schema, which forms the basis of our award winning gazetteer management system, means that you are only required to run the process once and the Blackbox will then configure that data as per your settings and export to your recipient list.
