What is the XDM?
The Xtended Data Module (XDM) extends your central address database into a full corporate asset by enabling the storage of any kind of additional information alongside the address information.
Put simply, the XDM makes all information instantly accessible to all systems and users.
It is designed to move your gazetteer beyond the confines of BS7666 and enable complete control over the choice of information stored.
What the XDM Does
The XDM creates user defined fields against each entry in your gazetteer into which additional information about that property can be entered.
An unlimited number of data categories can be added using the XDM Management Console. Within each Category, columns of all standard data types are supported (e.g. Integers, Floats, Text) as well as lookup columns and filtered lookup columns.

Using the XDM to bring systems together
A variety of information which relates to property is often distributed across different systems with different user interfaces and databases, and it has been difficult to bring this information together and make it universally available, until now.
Using the XDM, relevant data from separate systems can be incorporated into a central system providing consistent user interfaces, making it easier to disseminate to a wider audience.
This results in considerable time saving and goes a long way to avoiding the issues involved when additional training, for additional systems is otherwise required. With only one system the efficiency gains are clear.
