Match and cleanse your address data to the British Standard

When you’re holding large volumes of addresses in different formats across multiple systems, there’s plenty of scope for error. Combined with the inconsistencies caused by manual input, plus millions of address changes in Great Britain every six weeks, it’s clear to see how address data can rapidly become out of date.

Consistent, up-to-date address data that has been cleansed to the British Standard BS7666 can support local authorities in achieving accurate billing and delivery of services, increased administrative efficiency and a reduced risk of fraud.

Our matching and cleansing solution (Aligned Assets platform) matches against your gazetteer and AddressBase Premium, providing Unique Property Reference Numbers (UPRNs) across the whole organisation. This allows the council to link the data in different systems, providing enriched insight into every location.

“We embraced a truly collaborative approach and worked closely on all aspects of the project from its initial design all the way through to go-live. The Aligned Assets team hit the project with high energy, momentum and enthusiasm and were extremely responsive throughout – it’s been a great pleasure working with them.”

Luke Studden, GeoPlace

“To manage our extensive ward boundary changes, using the Aligned Assets solutions for matching and cleansing, managing the LLPG and sharing the updates across the organisation, made what could have been a huge administrative task so much easier and more time-efficient.”

Martin Laker, Bath and NE Somerset Council

“Thank you for migrating us from our old hosted LLPG solution on Office Anywhere, to the latest upgrade releases on the new Microsoft Azure environment this past weekend. I’m happy to say everything is working perfectly. Thank you for all your help, support and patience. You’ve been incredible.”

Emma Bygrave, Central Bedfordshire Council

“When we were about to migrate to the Aligned Assets LLPG gazetteer, I felt like someone on The Repair Shop, when they take their treasured family heirloom to be repaired and are genuinely concerned about what’s going to come back. I was absolutely delighted when I got the gazetteer back and sat inside the new software – there was no need to worry at all!”

Richard Warren, Oldham Council

“The Aligned Assets team are always willing to listen to suggestions and implement them wherever possible.”

James Matthews, Wiltshire Council
