Six elements to consider when choosing a tool for standardizing and geocoding address data

Location data plays a crucial role in the operations of many businesses. Understanding where our customers live or currently stay allows companies to tailor their sales and marketing strategies, offer personalized services, and efficiently manage logistics.

Despite the increasing significance of address data, many companies overlook its quality. The information they gather is often incomplete, contains errors, or becomes outdated, leading to operational problems that result in substantial costs. Even when a company strives to ensure address quality by standardizing and employing autocomplete mechanisms, they might not fully maximize their potential. The most significant advantages arise from effectively geocoding addresses, adding spatial information, and conducting Location Intelligence analyses. These elements enable a better understanding of customers and the market, unveiling new insights, and providing a fresh perspective on various business aspects.

So, how can you achieve the highest quality of address data? At Algolytics, we provide a top-performing tool for standardizing and geocoding data in Poland. Regardless of a company’s size or industry, we can elevate your data quality to the highest level. Let’s walk through six key elements worth considering when selecting a tool to enhance the quality of your address data together.


1. Accurate identification of addresses

During the standardization and geocoding process, the precision of matching the correct address from a reference database to your dataset is pivotal. Our solution, Algomaps, achieves an impressive 99% accuracy level and can identify addresses even with typos, incomplete, or outdated data. As a result, your addresses are corrected, reducing the need for manual verification. This not only cuts costs but also entirely eliminates the risk of human errors.

Our standardization service is currently available in Poland, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Romania, and Hungary. We’re also implementing it in additional countries, such as Germany, Austria, France, Italy, and Spain.

2. Meeting national standards

When choosing a data standardization tool, it’s crucial that the solution is comprehensive and aligns with the universally accepted format for address data in that particular country. Algolytics precisely verifies the accuracy of town/city names, streets, postal codes, apartment numbers, and administrative division units. Furthermore, the address format complies with the TERYT system, the most widely used (often legally required) standard for recording address data in Poland.

Additionally, Algolytics provides an autocomplete service. This feature allows you to enhance address quality right from the start, during the collection of customer information through forms. It’s an effective strategy to minimize the risk of incorrect data in your database and improve customer experience (CX).

3. Accurate geocoding

Another key element is the precision of geocoding. Unlike other services, we do not impose any limitations in this aspect. Every our client receives precise geocoordinates that clearly determine the location of a specific building or address.

Geocoding accuracy is crucial, especially in fields like insurance, property valuation, risk assessment, logistics, and delivery services, where pinpointing locations precisely can significantly impact business efficiency. With our solution, you can rest assured that the geocoordinates provided are incredibly accurate and correspond to the actual building location.

4. High performance

In the era of automated business operations, data processing speed becomes a decisive factor in efficiency. At Algolytics, we can deliver a standardized data record in just 5 milliseconds — whether you’re processing individual entries or handling large datasets.

Moreover, our service operates continuously — 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year — because we understand that business challenges don’t adhere to regular operating hours.

5. Flexible deployment options

Integrating data standardization into existing processes and systems can pose a challenge. That’s why at Algolytics, we provide flexible deployment options perfectly tailored to your needs.

If you value quick and easy integration, you can use our dedicated API. Whether you prefer real-time online standardization or batch processing of address packages, our standardization and geocoding API is available in both forms, enabling seamless integration with your business and tech environment.

However, if you’re planning occasional data standardization and geocoding, our web application is designed for you. With it, you can independently and easily enhance the quality of your address data in a simple and intuitive manner.

We also offer on-premise deployment of our solution, directly within your IT stack. This gives you complete freedom to choose the deployment method that best fits your needs.

6. Unique IDs for each address

The presence of a unique ID assigned to each address is crucial when selecting a tool for geocoding/standardizing data. Why is this important to consider? Primarily, having a unique key for each address simplifies work, especially concerning enriching address data. With an ID, you can easily link information about demographics, income, fraud/default risks, natural hazards, and security concerns to each address in your database. The absence of an ID would require more advanced analysis.

If you’re wondering about the benefits of adding additional information to your addresses, we’ve got the explanation ready. Appending spatial information to addresses unlocks the doors to Location Intelligence analyses. This allows for a better understanding of your customers and the market you operate in, uncovering various spatial relationships useful in more effective marketing and sales strategies.

In summary, choosing the right tool for data standardization/geocoding is a crucial aspect of optimizing your address database. Algolytics offers 99% accuracy, comprehensive data verification, flexible deployment options, high performance, and the ability to assign a unique ID to each address. If precision in data matters to you, feel free to reach out to us at, and together, we’ll ensure the top quality of your addresses.
