  • Spelling mistakes

    If the user is not sure about the spelling of words in an address or accidentally hit the wrong key, our search tool with fuzzy can still understand what the user 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 Avenue (Aveneu) and Mian (Main). Our tool detects this switch and still understand what the user was looking for.

  • Missing words and letters

    If the user only knows parts of an address or simply want to identify an address quickly. Loqate's software will find the address even with words and letters missing.

  • Abbreviations or nicknames

    If the user shortens 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, the Loqate search technology can still identify the address the user was looking for and returns 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.

User location detected

Loqate automatically detects the user's location (via IP or device location, if enabled) to assist the scoring and ranking of search results, finding the nearest matching addresses first. If the address is outside the user's country, the rest of the world is automatically searched for accurate matches. This unique feature helps customers receive a precise address match without having to type in their entire address.

Tailored settings

Your Loqate settings can be completely tailored to enable verification for the countries and territories where you have customers. If you expand your businesses internationally, you can change settings without the assistance of a developer.

Quality data

By cross-referencing, combining and cleansing the data from multiple sources within individual countries, we provide our customers with access to the world's most comprehensive and detailed repository of address data.

Compatible across devices

Your customers are multi-device users, so our address verification API is built to work on any internet enabled device, from computers and tablets to smartphones and EPoS kiosks.

Unicode support
