Geocoding, the process of turning address text into latitudes and longitudes, has a revered place in logistics. Without it, route allocation and optimization become next to impossible, which drives up per-delivery cost and routing confusion.
Yet, not all geocoding systems are created equal. The Quincus GeoEngine has honed this programming tool to create an efficient system able to read thousands of addresses concurrently and correct them accurately.
1. Unlike many geocoding systems, Quincus GeoEngine is able read single-line addresses, allowing ecommerce customers to key addresses into one box, not multiple fields.
2. When GeoEngine finds an address incomplete, it relies on its machine-learned database of more than 1.2 billion addresses to autocorrect and complete it.
3. GeoEngine is sophisticated enough to accurately correct even free text addresses, making addressing much easier.
