'Fuzzy' error prevention
Get location search right – even when your customers don’t. Our unique 'fuzzy matching' capability helps companies capture the most accurate address & geolocation information, even when the data entered isn’t perfect.
- Spelling mistakes
If you're not sure about the spelling of words in an address or accidentally hit a wrong key, our address verification tool can still understand what you meant to write. This can be very handy for internal systems too where addresses may be taken over the phone and are not spelled how they sound.
- Switched letters
It's really common for people to switch adjacent letters around in words when they type, for example Raod (Road) and Mian (Main). Our tool detects this and can still understand what the user was looking for.
- Missing words and letters
If you only know parts of an address or simply want to identify your address more quickly. Loqate's software will find your address even with words and letters missing.
- Abbreviations or nicknames
If you shorten words in an address, using common abbreviations - like Blvd for Boulevard, or use familiar, regional names for suburbs that have since been swallowed up into city districts, our technology can still identify the address you're looking for and return the full, valid address.
- Missing or extra spaces
Sometimes it's not clear whether a street name or place is made of one word or two, maybe it's hyphenated. Our address verification tool works to find the address even when users are unsure of the correct spacing or accidentally add too many spaces between words or letters.
