Helping to capture accurate patient data

Name, Address, Phone, Email and Bank data can all be validated to help reduce invalid data being entered into your systems. 

Existing data can also be cleansed to check if the data is valid, and where possible correct them.

Epilepsy Action Logo

If we can speed up the collection of routine data, then we can give more time and resource to people with epilepsy, their families and supporters. Using Postcode Plus helps us to do that, as otherwise taking down an address might be the longest part of a call.

Epilepsy Action

The Walton Centre
The Centre has a data quality policy in place, part of the outworking of this policy is validating patient details within the PAS. This means that any member of staff at The Centre who uses the PAS and registers patients requires the functionality to validate contact data at the point of entry. We would recommend other trusts to sit down with AFD and see how they can improve their data quality processes.

There is potential for error in any human typing of bank account details. Client bank data has to find its way onto our systems, and we need to be sure that it is accurate before processes of authorisation, entry to accounting systems and fund transfers take place.

MTA Solicitors Logo
For us, the biggest driver was the time saved by not having to key in data manually. On average we would make between 4 and 7 address checks on any new case, taking between 2 and 3 minutes to enter all the address data per case. On average we receive 2000 cases per month. That translates to a saving of between 4,000 and 6,000 minutes, 66 and 100 hours each month!

Each student studying at the college between 16 and 18 years old effectively provides us with £5,000 per annum of vital funding, whilst students over 18 provide £2,000. Preventing one or two students from slipping through the net more than covers the cost of email and phone validation from AFD. From sales through to support, all the team at AFD Software are friendly and quick to respond to any queries we have.

Geodemographic classifications

Censation® is AFD’s own geodemographic classification system that assigns one of 52 group codes to most UK postcodes. The code system uses the latest Census data, which is the most complete and comprehensive survey of the UK population. Whilst not specifically developed for the Education Sector, Censation has a wide range of possible applications and can be used to give an indication of the socioeconomic background of an applicant

Helping to capture accurate customer data

Skipton Building Society Logo

Mortgage applications illustrate the necessity for name and address accuracy. We need the current address for each applicant, the property to be purchased, and the property the vendor is moving to, the solicitor, surveyor and other professionals. A mortgage application can include over five addresses – all need to be right to process an application successfully.

Helping to capture accurate delivery data

Name, Address and Location data can be validated and appended to help ensure your systems have clean data and deliveries are efficient and accurate – including final mile deliveries!

APC Overnight Logo

Without the AFD element providing a valid address, a route planner would have to plan the route by manually locating it using mapping software and dropping a ‘pin’. This would be a relatively quick process in isolation, but we have over 1600 vans distributing from over 100 depots, each with route planners. This job is done first thing in the morning in a time-pressurised environment and, without the quality data that AFD provide, it would quickly lead to frustration for the route planners and would needlessly slow down the process.

Sean Stanley

Head of Business Systems at APC Overnight

DPD
We work at the cutting edge of technology and AFD’s solutions meet our data quality. Every minute counts and ten to fifteen minutes makes a significant difference - the equivalent of 2- 3 extra deliveries. Equally important, as a people-focused business we want to minimise stress for our drivers. We have achieved this by minimising the time taken to validate, correct or complete addresses at the point of collection or in the depot. The result is that drivers now are out on the road earlier and have more time available to deliver parcels.

Property level grids

Getting to the postcode is easy, getting to the right address is where the value lies for logistics companies. Many deliveries rely on postcode level grids at the centre of a postcode, in some instances this can be 15 minutes away from the target property, potentially leading the delivery to fail, or causing knock-on effects on the rest of the driver’s deliveries. Property level grid references give you full confidence that you can navigate precisely to your customer’s address and make a successful delivery.

Classifying addresses

What’s the split between B2B and B2C deliveries for your organisation?

Are deliveries failing because a driver tried to deliver after 6 pm to a commercial address?

All addresses have a property classification, e.g., Residential or Business, allowing for time-sensitive deliveries to be planned properly and for insight into the types of deliveries that are taking place each day.

Occupancy type

AFD’s occupancy indicator helps identify occupancy at postcode and property level, indicating if it is business, residential or mixed occupancy.

The types returned are as follows:

  • Large User Organisation
  • Small User Organisation
  • Mostly Organisations
  • Mixed
  • Mostly Residential
  • Residential

Further indicators provide details about a property with the following information returned:

  • Numbered and Named
  • Likelihood of
    Multiple Occupancy
  • Named
  • Non-Standard Address Format
  • No Property Information
