AddressPro on Amazon Cloud, real time address validation hosted on AWS

 

Anchor Software’s AddressPro on the Amazon Cloud is a robust and highly scalable address quality web service solution using Anchor Software’s proven address cleansing technology. Accurate address information helps organizations better communicate with customers, constituents, prospects, employees, and partners; and, subsequently, “address quality” initiatives ensure the accuracy, completeness, and consistency of address data across the enterprise. AddressPro represents Anchor’s most advanced, easy-to-use address quality solution to date, since it uses industry standard SOAP, XML and Rest web service technology, and provides the ability to support multiple users and/or systems simultaneously. This model allows processing threads to share database resources that are used by the address-processing engine. Additionally, AddressPro generates configurable logs that can help troubleshoot issues a user may encounter. AddressPro provides easy access to address quality wherever data is collected and shared across the organization from multiple touch points. This address data can be used for outbound communications, inbound identification, and business decisions. Data collected through data imports, web portals, call center interfaces, contract administration, accounting, marketing, points-of-sale, or other means can be seamlessly verified and cleansed via the Amazon Cloud. 

Features:

  • Performs standard USPS address verification and correction
  • SOAP/XML implementation for easy setup and intergration
  • Multi-threaded operation for resource sharing
  • Optional geocoding information

 

Benefits:

  • Internal systems working with clean data reduces the need to cleanse addresses later in the process – providing a more efficient environment
  • Address issues can be resolved at the time of entry – ensuring addresses will be accurate
  • Ensures timely customer communications due to accurate address information
  • Integrates into departmental, web, or enterprise applications
  • Easy integration with commercial off-the-shelf third-party applications

Reverse Geocoding

Geocoding is a  system that takes an address and translates it into latitude and longitude coordinates. This location data can then be used in a number of ways, such as by plotting the location on a map, generating driving directions, determine local financial information, or even cross-reference the location with photographs taken in the area. 

Reverse geocoding is like stadard geocoding and uses some of the same databases and informationresources, it simply works in reverse. Instead of starting with an address, reverse geocoding starts with a set of coordinates, given in latitude and longitude, and ends up with an address or name of a business.

Reverse Geocoding can be used for:

  • Mapping and Directions
  • Mobile Marketing
  • Customer Retention
  • Emergency/911 Reports
  • Insurance Claims
  • Marketing Research
  • Utility Reporting
  • Social Networks

Customer Data Hub

360 Customer View via Golden Records 

Operating a worldwide business while maintaining close contact with local customers across all channels presents a major challenge for many companies. While most companies have large stores of data on individual customers or prospects, oftentimes this data is stored in disparate systems spread throughout various departments in the company. These data silos hinder a 360° view of the customer and inconsistencies in the data itself ‘dilute’ the customer image, resulting in sub-optimal customer service. With the Anchor’s Customer Data Hub, you always have consistent, up-to-date and readily available customer master that data that allow you to supply your operative and analytic processes with the correct partner data, thereby creating the foundations for commercial success.

The Customer Data Hub extracts and consolidates customer master data from a wide range of disparate data sources. Thanks to identity resolution, you can determine the unique identity of your customer throughout all processes and systems. The optimized data can be consolidated to a Golden Record. Individual sets of rules enable leading datasets to be automatically processed and supplemented. Synchronization of the golden record with the source systems is also possible as required. 

Web-based data stewardship interfaces help define and administer appropriate sets of rules, guidelines, work-flows and processes within the framework of data governance. For example, master datasets can be merged and master data reinstated with original elements (“unmerged”), and relationships and hierarchies can be shown. Any changes made to the master data are clearly visible and can be understood. Once a sufficient data quality level has been achieved, it can be easily maintained for the future. Appropriate rights for the respective user are allocated, setting out who can read, add, and alter differing types of data from different sources. From within the framework of an established data governance initiative, you can coordinate and control a powerful master data management based upon reliable customer master data.

Anchor’s CDH solution means that exhaustive programming, adaptation, and time-consuming software maintenance are no longer needed. The Customer Data Hub does not require complex integration projects or changes to currently existing data models. Based upon the principles of lean integration, this approach enables fast presentation of operatively pertinent results and gradual incorporation of further customer data into your CDH solution. This reduces costs, while at keeping the project itself lean and the project risk calculable. Rapid implementation of a CDH solution with high scalability and targeted behavior of data will generate a positive return on investment (ROI).

Master Data Management Tools for Data Governance and Management

Leverage Big Data with Master Data Management

When duplicate customer data exists across disparate systems in large organizations, the results can have a negative impact on effective business decisions, operational efficiencies, customer retention, and new sales opportunities. A quality Master Data Management system is crucial for dealing with data across extensive enterprises, especially those with many product offerings or that have expanded through extensive series of mergers and acquisitions.

Master Data Management is a process that ensures an organization does not use multiple, inconsistent versions of the same data in different operational segments. This issue can be especially troublesome for large organizations where there could be many units tracking the same information, but all keeping that information in different formats, with varying degrees of accuracy and completeness. Through the use of a process called record linkage, the organization is able to associate different records that relate to the same entity or item.

On a small scale, deduplication processes on a single database may be enough to correct  redundant data. But in large organizations with 5, 10 or even 100 separate databases containing customer information, a quality Master Data Management system is required to manage the huge amounts of data involved.  Anchor Software’s Master Data Management system employs the most advanced technology to provide organizations with  master data , or “golden record,” on each customer.  Validating, standardizing and consolidating data across multiple systems, allows a 360º view of each customer, with accurate and complete data available to all stakeholders across the enterprise.
