Maybe you're already familiar with the way Express Entry and Express Entry Desktop Edition can autocomplete addresses - just select the country and type in the beginning of an address, and the service can fill in the missing information, using address data from over 240 countries.

But did you know the many benefits to autocompleting addresses? Increased efficiency, a single view of the customer at the point-of-entry, and increased security, to name a few.

With Express Entry Desktop Edition, you can easily enter complete addresses with 50 percent less keystrokes, with the bonus (since it uses the Express Entry service) that the addresses are already verified.

When you receive a complete address from the service, you can also geocode it easily with the click of the 'verify' button. Also, Express Entry Desktop Edition's system of templates gives you the flexibility you need to efficiently fill out any form in Windows or on the Web without having to code a solution.

Another benefit to using Express Entry is the single view of the customer at the point-of-entry. This way, duplication in your database is controlled from the start. Express Entry's standardized addresses are consistent as they have pre-directionals, ordinals, suffixes, and post-directionals already abbreviated throughout.

Standardized addresses mean that you won't have to deduplicate customer tables by address. There are no addresses in Express Entry data that do not conform to the standard.

There may be one benefit you haven't thought of: fraud prevention. When a user selects a verified and standardized address on your form, or your Customer Service Representative enters an address through Express Entry Desktop's GUI, your confidence that the customer is who they say they are is increased. It becomes easier to separate real addresses from the fake ones.

Express Entry data is built from multiple sources so you can rest assured that address data is correct. If your Customer Service Center takes in addresses, Express Entry Desktop Edition can help your Customer Service Representatives enter them in more quickly.
