accuracy achieved at unparalleled speed

Consistent, accurate and up-to-date address data

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manual input, plus the large number of continual address changes, it’s clear to see how address data can rapidly become out of date.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 accurate billing, delivery of goods and services, increased administrative efficiency, save field staff time and reduce the risk of fraud. 

Our matching and cleansing solution (Aligned Assets platform) matches against the most up-to-date dataset available, AddressBase Premium, providing Unique Property Reference Numbers (UPRNs) to underpin your data. With UPRNs in place, you can link your systems to provide enriched insight into every location.

“We’re delighted to partner with Aligned Assets, using their software to enable the Centralised Switching Service to match and update addresses against the most accurate addressing system available, Ordnance Survey’s AddressBase Premium.”

Chris Brackley, Managing Director of Landmark Solutions, Landmark Information Group

“Through using the Aligned Assets solutions, we’ve been able to link the UDPRN and UPRN, enabling us to completely remove the potential for erroneous transfers. In addition, we’re now uniquely positioned to leverage the upcoming next-day switching project which is being underpinned by Aligned Assets technology.”

Farouk Alhassan, Senapt Ltd

“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

“Since enhancing our Aligned Assets gazetteer with their 118 Business Names module, we’ve seen a more accurate identification of business addresses for our 999 call handlers and operation crews. This has led to an average reduction in Business Incidents’ attendance times of 30 seconds – and that can mean the difference between life and death.”

Stuart King, NFSP / Dorset and Wiltshire Fire

“Using Aligned Assets’ AddressBase Premium gazetteer, which allows six-weekly updates, has greatly reduced the time and effort spent manually processing records, therefore allowing us to spread our resources across the department in a more efficient manner.”
