Enhanced iWay Offerings Deliver Advanced Address Verification and Geocoding Technology

New York and Las Vegas, April 02, 2014

Today at the Gartner Enterprise Information and MDM Summit, Information Builders, a leader in business intelligence (BI) and analytics, information integrity, and integration solutions, announced that it has partnered with Loqate, a leader in international address verification. The relationship leverages Loqate’s technology for verification and geocoding to ensure reliable and consistent global address validation for users of Information Builders’ iWay Data Quality Suite, iWay Integration Suite, and iWay Master Data Suite.

The iWay product lines, which deliver comprehensive, unified toolsets designed to profile, cleanse, enrich, and integrate data will now incorporate Loqate’s Verify solution, which parses, standardizes, verifies, transliterates, and formats address data for more than 240 countries and territories. In addition, Loqate’s Geocode solution will provide the ability to add a latitude-longitude coordinate to any address or geographic point worldwide. The offering will deliver reliable and consistent global address validation and drive more effective data integration results for iWay users. Loqate will benefit from Information Builders’ deep expertise in delivering BI and information integrity and integration solutions to an extensive and diverse global customer base.

“The combination of Loqate’s advanced verification and geocoding solutions and iWay’s powerful data integrity and integration capabilities allows our customers to ensure that their global data is as complete, consistent, and accurate as possible,” said Gerald Cohen, president and CEO of Information Builders. “In today’s data-saturated landscape, ensuring the quality and accuracy of complex data sets is critical for intelligent and informed decision-making. Information Builders’ partnership with Loqate will help our customers gain greater confidence in their data integrity, which in turn will inform more intelligent business decisions and company growth.”
