You have certainly looked for addresses in maps or in other software applications before. And you certainly find it practical if the address is completed automatically and suitable address suggestions are made regardless of whether you enter the street name or the city name first.

Behind these results is an address search API, which compares the entered address with a huge address database, determines the appropriate address suggestions and ensures the correct spelling of the address. A geocoding runs in the background so that the addresses can be enriched with coordinates and displayed exactly on the map.

And that is exactly what our address search API QuickSearch does - fast, easy and super reliable!

Are you looking for an API for an address search? We have something for you!

Small API, Big Impact: QuickSearch in Detail

QuickSearch is a high-performance and scalable address search module based on up-to-date web and database technology. It was particularly important during the development to ensure that different data sources could be integrated and that it could be adapted for the specific requirements of the customer. The API should leave nothing to be desired when searching for addresses.

Address Data and Coordinates

QuickSearch not only provides correct addresses, but also coordinates. This is very convenient.

Comprehensive, Up-to-date Address Data for Europe

Address data are available for all European countries and North America. WIGeoGIS optimizes the structure and content for the address search and in a further step integrates the data in the search database. QuickSearch is thus generally able to provide exact WGS 84 coordinates for street addresses. The address data is updated every year and is therefore always up to date.

Goodbye Chaos! Efficient Data Acquisition and Always Correct Addresses

When entering addresses, for example when new customer addresses are created in a CRM, errors often occur. The addresses are incomplete, typing errors creep in and the addresses are saved in a different order. All of this leads to an unsightly mess of address data, which causes more trouble and frustration. If QuickSearch is integrated, this can never happen again. Because when users type in their search, they are provided with accurate mailing addresses that can simply be selected. Afterwards, the accurate mailing addresses are saved in your databases and are assigned the correct XY coordinates. By making the address acquisition the same for the different channels of your business (online, telephone, intranet, etc.), you can reduce errors and costs.

Custom Extensions

Do you have further requirements or wishes for your address-related search? We also program custom extensions to meet your specific needs. An example of such a custom extension is the search for the names of customers or service providers. You enter the name and get their address.

Do you want a uniform address search for your business based on a complete address database? As an IT service provider, are you looking for a modern address search? Then QuickSearch is the right solution.
