What if you could instantly find out which areas of your community, state, or country have the largest clusters of your customers? Would you be better able to plan your next move or expansion? That's just one beneficial use for address geocode software.
Service Objects' DOTS Address Geocoding API instantly translates an address to its exact geocode using latitude and longitude coordinates. This translation takes place in real time at the point of entry. In addition, you can run the address geocoder on demand to process an existing list of addresses. Address geocoding opens the doors to other opportunities and enhanced decision-making.
For example, by geocoding addresses, you can plot customer locations on a map and identify hot spots. Address geocoding with a lat - long converter allows you to make smarter decisions based on where your customers are located, plan sales routes and logistics, and accurately assign county, block and tract codes to addresses to maintain FFIEC compliance.
Address geocoding is especially useful for fleets and deliveries as route planning and logistics become much more efficient. By streamlining your routes, you can reduce your fuel costs and put fewer miles on your fleet vehicles -- potentially extending their useful lives as a result.
Many professionals use address geocoding to identify physical locations of potential customers. For example, solar panel contractors may run a list of prospects' addresses through address geocode software to quickly determine each prospect's physical location as well as take a sneak peek at satellite photos to determine whether or not the property would be a good candidate for solar panels. Insurance agents can also use address geocode software to calculate and address's proximity to water, which is often useful in determining flood risk.
Geocoding is also useful for assigning sales representatives to accounts based on the physical location provided. Street addresses alone aren't necessarily easy to decipher whereas address geocoding can tell you exactly where an address is.
When you need more than an address, but rather an actual location, our geocoding API provides an accurate geocode instantly. Put location intelligence to work and save time and money while making smarter decisions. ... Read Less
