ADDRESS-POINT Compatibility Still Possible Through Aligned Assets

Press release from: Aligned Assets

Woking, Surrey 2nd April 2014 – AddressBase specialists Aligned Assets are offering a solution to both the private and public sector that will allow them to migrate to the Ordnance Survey’s new AddressBase Premium product whilst retaining compatibility with the older, soon to be discontinued ADDRESS-POINT legacy product.

With the Ordnance Survey withdrawing ADDRESS-POINT from the Public Sector Mapping Agreement (PSMA) and One Scotland Mapping Agreement (OSMA) in October 2014, this will leave many organisations, including the Police, NHS Trusts, Fire & Rescue Services and utility companies unable to update many of their frontline and back office systems as they are not compatible with the new AddressBase format.

Without the ability to update, the address data they use will quickly go out of date, particularly with regard new housing developments, resulting in errors that will affect their ability to safely and effectively carry out their operational duties.

With the Aligned Assets solution, they will be able to keep these systems updated with all new-build properties, changes to property addresses such as houses divided into flats and also those properties that have been demolished.

Available as a standalone product or as a part of the Aligned Assets corporate gazetteer system, the solution works by feeding updates to AddressBase Premium into a central database, with these updates then automatically converted into the ADDRESS-POINT format and sent out to all recipient systems.

A tried and tested solution with numerous UK implementations, this conversion process will keep an organisation’s address data accurate and up to date whilst allowing those organisations sufficient time to invest in new systems rather than be forced into rushing upgrades that can incur additional costs and sacrifice core functionality.

“AddressBase Premium is the address data of the future, with a higher level of accuracy and coverage than anything that’s come before it,” explained Andy Hird, Managing Director of Aligned Assets.

“It is clear though that many organisations are going to struggle in upgrading all their systems before the October 2014 deadline and it is our solution that can give them that precious time in order to make the necessary changes, all the while continuing ‘business as usual’.”
