DMTI Spatial Marching Toward a 100% Validation Level for Canadian Addresses

MARKHAM, ONTARIO--(CCNMatthews - April 23, 2007) - DMTI Spatial (DMTI), a leading provider of location intelligence solutions, announces it has surpassed the milestone of validating more than 90% of the active addresses in Canada. The business benefits of working with clean, validated address information have compelling implications across market verticals and lines of business within an enterprise. DMTI has targeted completion of 100% validation of all Canadian addresses by October 2007. The company's next goal is completion of the same data for the U.S.

DMTI's new Location Hub™ technology delivers unprecedented address-point accuracy that can be incorporated into location applications such as: navigation systems, mobile phones, telecommunications, finance and insurance solutions. DMTI's validated address product solution provides better baseline references for business problems dependent on knowing which addresses are "real" and those that require property or building level location precision.

"Address standardization and postal certification provide address format consistency but do not guarantee that the address actually exists. By validating addresses, DMTI is confirming that the address is proven to exist, is active and is nailed to the ground with a precise geographic reference," says John Fisher, CTO at DMTI Spatial. "DMTI recognizes that maintaining the currency of address data is one of the greatest challenges in business. The use of our Location Hub™ technology enables companies to solve this problem once and forever, greatly increasing the quality, reliability, and integration of their enterprise data."

The unique address cleansing, matching, cross-validating and maintenance methodology of the DMTI Location Hub produces far greater address integrity than current software vendor approaches. Approximately 7,000 data sources are used to benchmark and validate more than 12.9 million addresses. The net benefits include less error in enterprise data, higher confidence in business analytics and improved overall business results.
