DMTI Spatial Inc. (DMTI), Canada’s leading provider of Location Intelligence solutions, announced the latest release of their flagship product, Location Hub® 2.1. Brought to enterprise customers through a SaaS based model, and integrated directly to their existing infrastructure, the new functionality delivers advanced post office box and rural route information through Postal Recognition, as well as an increase of over 2,000,000 civic addresses with high precision coordinates. While leveraging this premium data through DMTI’s Location Hub platform customers also have the added ability to add their own addresses to a secure customizable database utilizing the new Address Assert service. The unique value of this superior location data also now allows customers to utilize the new Drive Time and Drive Distance service to make critical cost-saving business decisions.

With its new Postal Address Recognition feature, Location Hub can now recognize and geocode addresses coming in the form of rural routes, post office boxes and station information. This functionality provides customers with a higher match rate on addresses, whether it is commercial, residential, urban or rural, high rise or detached, Postal CodeOM or intersection, Location Hub can recognize it. The new Address Assert feature is a secure, customizable location database, containing DMTI data and data unique to each customer, providing the flexibility to add client-specific attributes to existing addresses and add new addresses as required. The Drive Time and Drive Distance Services allow Location Hub users to define a given distance or driving time from a starting location, and then derive the boundaries or list of addresses within that threshold. These services can help with better targeting, territory monitoring and cost control.
