Owners of residential or commercial properties want to ensure their properties against fire, flood, windstorm, crime, etc. In order to ensure the right property, having the correct information about the address is crucial.
The Addresses API provides the ability to:
- Search for an address and pick from a list
- Resolve to the actual address
- Retrieve an address using Cytora ID
The Addresses API was created by Cytora at the beginning of 2019 to bridge the gap between limited address information and maximum information about the property. With unstructured or incomplete address information provided to insurance companies or brokers, it takes time to find the correct address.
The Addresses API uses AddressBase Premium with 47.9 million unique addresses in Great Britain.
In order to find the correct address, Addresses API uses proprietary Machine Learning models that have been tailored to provide the optimal performance for our customers. This is done using a Named-Entity Recognition (NER) model to identify relevant components of an address, a search model to rank potential results, and a matching model to return the most relevant result.
United Kingdom Coverage
Currently, Cytora only supports addresses in Great Britain (England, Scotland, and Wales). It excludes Northern Ireland and other British islands such as Guernsey, the Isle of Man and Jersey.
The Addresses API has a minimum confidence threshold, which means only strong address matches are returned as a potential match. Our comparison of the Addresses API against other solutions show the emphasis Cytora has placed on returning the correct address.
The Addresses API is priced by pay per use.
