Group 1 Software Extends Geocoding Solution to Support UK and Ireland Addresses

Thursday, June 22, 2006

Press release from the issuing company

LANHAM, Md., June 21 -- Group 1 Software, Inc., a Pitney Bowes Company, today announced that its GeoStan(TM) geocoding solution now supports United Kingdom and Ireland addresses, providing multi-country address correction, standardization and high-definition geocoding in one pass. A component of Group 1's comprehensive Customer Communication Management (CCM) solution, GeoStan helps correct, standardize, and provide the location coordinates (latitude and longitude) associated with a particular valid address -- a process known as geocoding. GeoStan now supports U.S., Canadian, UK and Ireland locations, with additional country support planned for the future. GeoStan's high-definition data is used by insurance, telecommunications, transportation, finance, routing and mapping companies, among others, for a variety of marketing and operational applications, including identifying customers eligible for location-based services, more accurately identifying insurance rate territories, and providing starting and ending locations for optimizing delivery routes. Based on cascading geographic logic, GeoStan provides high-speed geocoding at successive degrees of precision to help ensure an accurate match for address data with minimal user effort. "The addition of UK and Ireland locations to our GeoStan solution is a significant development for Group 1, as it opens important new markets for our geocoding and customer communications management solutions," said Steve Walden, vice president and general manager, Centrus Division, Group 1 Software. "We look forward to leveraging our proven experience in North America, along with Pitney Bowes' established presence in Europe, to support customers in these countries, as well as other international markets in the future."
