OS Places services

As the pace of inbound customer communication increases, so does the need to verify customer data from multiple sources in real time. Web sites, call centres, finance departments and mobile workers will all be sending information back to a data warehouse.

So, putting a fast address lookup service at user’s point of need makes sense, as it ensures that only accurate addresses gets sent to an organisation’s data warehouse.

How does it do that?

The process of using our web services is remarkably simple. All that’s required is for your software or application to send a request for address information (a postcode, say) to the OS places service via the internet; what comes back is a package of information with the requested address data, which can then be viewed by the user.

As these things go, this is about as easy as it gets.

And because our web services are operating system and programming language neutral, you can use our service anywhere. It can easily be placed in front of anybody who talks to customers because it works in business software, Customer Relationship Management (CRM) systems, web and mobile applications.
