What a year it’s been for our Capture product. Over that last 12 months we’ve seen over 9 billion requests through our servers, all with an uptime of 9.99%. Meaning we’ve supplied mammoth amounts of online shoppers, gamers and businesses all over the world with accurate address data.
November was by far our busiest month; unsurprising considering Black Friday’s global takeover, in November alone we served up over 1 billion requests, an 18% growth from last year's peak.
It’s hard to quantify the exact impact of providing accurate global address data. But we don’t need numbers to know that reliable data is the lifeblood of successful organisations, and its positive effects span far and wide across industries. It can help businesses streamline operations, increase customer satisfaction and reduce the costs associated with shipping and delivery.
On a more personal note, with a delivery driver in my family I like to break down the impact of good data to a more human level. Verified address data helps the logistic industry stay moving. Clear address labels help drivers avoid getting lost or wasting time trying to locate hard to find addresses. Poor data can result in delays and considerable stress. I like to think that we’re acting on behalf of these busy humans who are often under pressure to meet tight deadlines and who face long working hours in often challenging weather.
There are clear benefits of using a product like Capture. It offers a range of advanced features that make it a powerful tool for both businesses and individuals. It effortlessly corrects common data errors, such as misspelled words or incorrect formatting, it accurately captures customer addresses, eliminating the need for manual data entry. The tool is easy to use, fast, and secure making it the perfect solution for businesses who want to save time and money while ensuring their customer data is accurate and up to date.
Overall, we've had another great year of service. It’s proven to be reliable, robust and scalable. It’s helped streamline countless checkout experiences and allowed businesses to make great data-driven decisions.
Good work Capture team, cheers to 2022 and here’s to 2023!
