How does Loqate compare to Google?

Data quality

Data quality

Our database is updated frequently to incorporate new or modified address information from our group of global data providers. Google’s is updated sporadically, and in some areas can be years old. 

Location biasing

Location biasing

Our location biasing is more granular and accurate so customers can find any address in as little as three keystrokes. On average, it takes twice as many keystrokes to get an address in Google Places Autocomplete.

Sub-building data

Sub-building data

Our database includes apartments, suites, rooms and floor numbers in 120+ countries. Google Places Autocomplete recognizes the outer building rather than internal units and is missing data on approximately 30 million apartment units in the US alone.

Great UX

Great UX

Our fuzzy matching capability effectively captures an address even when the data entered isn't perfect. Google Places Autocomplete doesn’t cover substitution, so if a user spells a word incorrectly, there is no guarantee that Google will return the correct result.

Customer service

Customer service

Our friendly, award-winning customer service team make it their aim to resolve any issues within one working day. While Google offers support too, this is either via community or paid support.
