When you’re holding millions of addresses in numerous formats across multiple systems there’s plenty of scope for error. Add to that the inconsistencies derived from manual input and the 2+ million address changes made in Great Britain every 6 weeks (GeoPlace), and it’s easy to see how quickly your address data can get out of date.
Clean address data is critical. By address matching and cleansing your data, you’ll increase efficiency across the whole organisation improving outcomes such as more accurate billing for councils and utilities, or reduced response times for emergency services.
Our address matching and cleansing tool (iMatch) matches your data against the most up-to-date dataset available, AddressBase Premium. Bringing your data up to the British Standard BS7666, it provides the standard address identifier, the Unique Property Reference Number (UPRN) and geographic coordinates. By using the UPRN as an identifier, you can cross reference your data with any other systems ensuring accurate addresses organisation-wide. The geo coordinates will drive compatibility with background mapping and aerial photography, allowing any department’s data to be viewed spatially.
Its simple interface is easy to configure and effortless to use, showing the matching status of each record that’s processed.
Our solution can facilitate both automated address matching, as well as interactive matching when a more manual approach is needed. You can tailor the automated address matching to suit your needs by choosing:
This maximises achieving an automatic match and results in less time and effort spent in manual address matching. As it is rare that one set of matching criteria will cater for every address in your data set, you can implement multiple matching runs against the data, each with its own set of matching requirements.
Our newly developed iMatch Advanced is an additional capability that will deliver matching at ultimate speed. Developed for a project with national address coverage, it is capable of matching 50 million addresses in 10 hours, achieving the same match rate of 85 – 90%.
This ultimate speed is achieved by eliminating any user interface and uses multiple servers to parallel process the matching. This is the product for any large scale, corporate-wide matching needs, such as those required by large, complex organisations like the energy and water utilities.
With the remaining unmatched records, iMatch will show in-depth detail on potential matches so users can make an informed choice. This could include:
Simply choose the potential match and then accept, ignore, reject or log any issues found. This enables complete control over the quality of data on an address by address basis.
Once a match is complete, simply export the results of the match back to the source system for address cleansing. The match results will contain the UPRN from the match, the matched BS7666 address and the original address from the source system.
Our address matching and cleansing solution can be implemented as a standalone piece of software or as a module as part of our LLPG, LSG and AddressBase Premium gazetteers. By seamlessly integrating with our gazetteers, you can be sure your central data repository will be providing the highest quality data.
