The Benefits of Address Autocomplete
Address Autocomplete Features
Real-time Address Lookup
Reach any address in the world in as little as 3 keystrokes and look it up any way you want starting with the first line of the street address, city, or postcode.
Suggestions to autocomplete will immediately be provided as soon the user begins typing.
Global Address Standardisation
Every country has a different mailing format standard. For example: Canada has a municipality, province, and alphanumeric postal code, but Japan has a city, prefecture, and numeric postal code. If you have customers in both countries, you need to ensure all your addresses are formatted consistently to the local format in order for mail to reach your contacts in these countries.
With 131 different global address formats included, standardised address data means you can deliver everywhere easily.
Email Address Autocomplete
Global Express Entry autocompletes and validates email addresses at point-of-entry. This eliminates the need for customers to retype their email to verify it, speeds up account creation and ordering, and virtually eliminates spam. It’s a win-win-win.
Over a quarter of UK addresses are made up of flats and multi-residential properties with many sharing the same front door. This also includes apartments, floor numbers and suites; Global Express Entry ensures users can select these types of addresses, which are consistently updated locally and on an international scale.
‘Fuzzy’ Error Prevention
We understand that addresses entered at times may have mistakes, which is why our unique inbuild ‘fuzzy matching’ capability will ensure businesses capture the most accurate address and geocoding data 100% of the time. This means automatic corrections of misspellings, abbreviations even missing information.
