UK: ESRI UK and identity management specialist, GB Group, have developed LocatorHub GBAccelerator. The new solution brings together both parties’ software applications to link UK postcodes and addresses with live geographical data in order to help organisations make faster, location-based decisions.
LocatorHub GBAccelerator is a powerful reference data solution that provides organisations with a flexible, live feed of the most current address information integrated through ESRI’s mapping solutions. It provides organisations with accurate and timely information resulting in quicker and better results to their data queries, adds the company. The technology also combines a geo-coding solution to map clients’ existing data.
A number of flexible aggregated data options are available for ESRI UK’s customers from the launch of the service with a comprehensive roadmap of additional data options to follow and customer specific data builds which are available on request. Used interactively, simply entering a partial address or postcode will return a fully geo-coded address allowing the client to zoom or pan the GIS map to the desired location.
“We work with a large number of clients who need to be able to utilise and analyse a broad range of data in a GIS and who cannot afford to have inaccurate information,” said Lincoln Hewett, Alliance Director at GB Group. “Our collaboration with ESRI UK allows us to offer a cost effective solution to the marketplace that allows organisations to successfully utilise customer, supplier, event, incident and any other location based data in GIS.”
The ESRI and GB Group solution has a number of key benefits including, helping the emergency services react to crime and incidents more quickly, enabling utility companies to trace gas leaks and the individuals affected and helping local authorities to improve the efficiency of the services they offer, including street works and asset management.
