Emergency services face considerable challenges in maintaining and sharing accurate address data:

How Idox’s Address Data Solutions can help you:

Advanced address data solutions for managing and sharing the most up-to-date address data

Our software built on the Aligned Assets platform provides a cutting-edge Gazetteer Management System (GMS) to utilise, share and enhance AddressBase Premium address data. Used by more than half of emergency services in Great Britain, its advanced technology is easy to use, driving efficiency and productivity.

Creating local-only records

Creating local-only records

Unlike other Gazetteer Management Systems, you can create local-only address records complete with Unique Property Reference Numbers (UPRN) and Unique Street Reference Numbers (USRN), such as alternative names, roads not captured within station grounds or ancillary buildings, enabling faster deployment to a precise location unavailable in AddressBase Premium.

Going beyond gazetteer management

Our GMS seamlessly integrates with our complementary software products, elevating your address data solutions with features such as matching and cleansing, incorporating non-British Standard BS7666 data to be stored alongside existing addresses, and harnessing robust APIs for rapid, accurate address lookups.

Going beyond address management
Continuous product development

Continuous product development

Our solutions are fully up-to-date with changes in technology and data standards, including Ordnance Survey’s forthcoming National Geographic Database (NGD) and the Emergency Services Gazetteer (ESG).

“Unlike our previous gazetteer, Idox’s Bluelight GMS has enabled integration with other systems, eg our premise risk management system, ensuring all our systems have access to a single accurate, set of address data. From an analytical perspective, using a single address through multiple systems allows analysis to be more efficient and reliable.”

Matthew Ella, Gazetteer & GIS Technician, Buckinghamshire FRS.

“Idox worked with us to develop the capability of adding virtual street-segments to our Bluelight Gazetteer Management System. Having this consistent, named and SFRS-coded virtual street segment data shared across the three control hubs ensures we get the nearest appliances to the incident quickly.”

Lynn Oliver, Gazetteer Watch Commander Scottish Fire and Rescue Service.

“London Fire Brigade’s corporate gazetteer underpins everything we do, so it was critical to identify an advanced and feature-rich gazetteer management system to replace Esri’s soon-to-be-retired LocatorHub. We’ve been working closely with Idox to tailor the GMS to meet our vast and complex requirements and look forward to our imminent full migration.”

Richard Jebb , Corporate Gazetteer & Mobile Data Manager London Fire Brigade.
