How Address Validation works
We pride ourselves on giving our customers the option between two different formats of address validation, PredictiveAddress™ and Postcode Lookup. Both of these methods provide customers with unique ways on acquiring formatted, accurate and valid address data, verifying an address at the point of capture.
Our address validation software calls upon a wide range of sources, including:
- Royal Mail PAF (Postcode Address File), containing over 30 million records, updated daily
- Data8 Business Universe, containing 2 million+ B2B records that you won't find from any other provider
- Not-yet-built and multi-residence data; identify premises under construction and premises with shared letterboxes with confidence
- Global Coverage for over 250 countries, including USPS and Eircode
How Does PredictiveAddress™ Work?
PredictiveAddress™ is the Address Validation feature that enables a customer to simply start typing their address into the blank field. As they type in their address, a drop-down menu will appear below the blank field, providing the customer with a real-time update on a variety of addresses they can choose from (matching their already written criteria).
Our 'Fuzzy Logic' means that you can start at any point in the address, misspell a word or type ''four'' instead of ''4''.
Address Autocomplete, regardless of where you start
Through the use of a sophisticated AI, a customer may start writing from any part of their address. Once the customer starts typing, PredictiveAddress™ will start to formulate a list of options to choose from. This even works by simply inserting a postcode.
We all make mistakes, and our PredictiveAddress™ AI knows that! Check out what our intelligent Fuzzy Logic can overcome.
Whether you are adding extra spaces in between words, or adding spaces within the word itself, our Fuzzy Logic AI will overcome the mistake of too many keystrokes.
Must like having too many spaces, Fuzzy Logic can predict the address without the need of spaces at all!
Most people nowadays are using mobile phones. This means that we are more prone to the odd typo or two. Luckily, Fuzzy Logic can work around this.
Could you spell in an address in multiple different ways? Our Fuzzy Logic AI looks past phonetic spellings, providing the user with words that sound the same but are spelt differently.
Is it 'Abbey Road' or 'Abbey Rd'? Luckily Data8's Fuzzy Logic AI believes that both could mean the same thing!
Not sure if the 'i' comes before the 'e'? Data8's fuzzy logic can still predict an address with transposed characters. Meaning the user can get away with a few spelling mistakes.

How Does Postcode Lookup Work?
Postcode Lookup works in a similar way to PredictiveAddress™ in that it provides a customer with a list of addresses to choose from. However, the difference here is that the list of addresses formulated will only be displayed after the customer inserts a UK postcode AND clicks on a button that activates the search.
