Address Management

Chances are, your Organisation uses addresses in many of its computer systems. From updating your LLPG, providing an address lookup on your website or storing an address in your accounting system addresses can be of critical importance to your Organisation. Aligned Assets provides software that makes Address Management Simple.

For some organizations you need the ability to manage these addresses, UK Councils have a statutory duty to do so, but other organizations also need to manage addresses, such as the Emergency Services, Local and National Governments, Utilities and Insurance companies from around the world. No matter what service your business provides having access to accurate and current data will help you do things better.

Address Management allows your Organisation to receive the very best address data available, hold it within a centralized structured format, manage property lifecycle and share that data with other users and systems. If you want to create additional address data in recognized industry standards you can do so too. Address management is the process of not only using address data but of building it and building upon it. Corporate gazetteer management is ensuring that this data is then shared across and used by an entire Organisation.

Address Cleansing for Energy Suppliers

Poor quality addresses within an Organisation create major headaches and confusion, leading to unnecessary wastage in billing, handling of customer inquiries, household visits or other operational activities. Aligned Assets can help energy suppliers review, cleanse and match their own address data to ensure they are as accurate and up-to-date data as possible. Not only will this help with coping with the Central Switching Service (CSS), it will give any energy supplier large benefits in its own right.

By implementing Aligned Assets’ cleansing solution, iMatch, a user can take a list of addresses in any structured or unstructured format and cleanse it against the most up-to-date and accurate address product available, Ordnance Survey’s AddressBase Premium. The end result is an official address that complies with British Standard B7666, and therefore includes the nationally recognized Unique Property Reference Number (UPRN)and geographic coordinates of that property. The solution is so flexible it can integrate with any other system being employed, resulting in synchronized, accurate and up-to-date address data being shared across the whole Organisation. By using the automated processes and technology, the need for manual intervention, and therefore duplication of effort, is removed, saving time and money.

Address Matching & Cleansing

Poor quality addresses within an Organisation create major headaches and confusion, resulting in unnecessary wastage in billing, handling of customer inquiries, household visits or other operational activities.

Over the last 22 years, Aligned Assets has enabled local authorities, emergency services, and water company customers to cleanse and match their address data to that in AddressBase Premium, achieving large efficiencies in the provision of council services, accurate billing and emergency response to the public.

Using sophisticated matching routines within the matching solution, iMatch a user can take a list of addresses in any structured or unstructured format and cleanse it against a centralized address list, such as AddressBase Premium or your central gazetteer (provided it us up-to-date and accurate). The end result is an official address that complies with British Standard B7666, and therefore includes the nationally recognized Unique Property Reference Number (UPRN) and geographic coordinates of that property.

Easy to use, Aligned Assets software can integrate with any other system being employed, resulting in synchronized, accurate and up-to-date address data being shared across the whole organization. By using the automated processes and technology, the need for manual intervention, and therefore duplication of effort, is removed, saving time and money.

Cleansing and matching address data is essential for any organization using addresses, and depending on your requirements, the company can either provide a solution as a module within a corporate gazetteer, as a standalone product or as a service where the matching is done for you.
