The world is getting smaller, but the gap between the countries with good geolocation services and bad ones is growing larger. Bad physical addresses create second class citizens of geolocation technology all over the world.
An Innovative Platform
Our Location Technology Platform for Global Companies and technology solution providers in countries where postal service does not work with standards addresses.
Users will be able to use non traditional formats to provide accurate location information. For example, we would be able to add “meta-data” to standardized addresses with a description of “the house on front of the mango street,” as many customers use physical landmarks to explain their address location.
Designed to work with addresses around the world
Bad addresses affects companies in such areas as rising mailing costs, returned mail expenses, and delivery delays, as well as product order fulfillment and access to existing mapping platforms and GIS systems.
Enterprise solutions are in the works for address governance and crowdsourcing efforts to improve address quality for each country. We believe this platform has the potential to change the way countries manage addresses around the world.
Our powerful API’s can be adapted to work with any country. More than 100 countries around the world have problems with addressing systems.
Our system helps non-English speakers to correctly spell complex English street names and English-speaking users to easily locate complex Spanish street names.
“In most industrialized countries, having a physical address is something that we take for granted. But in many developing countries, as well as in some emerging economies, the majority of people do not have an address. Yet addresses are an essential tool for economic and social development.”
