Frequently Asked Questions

General

What is DirectAddress?2020-08-13T13:56:42+00:00

DirectAddress

DirectAddress is Dataconversion’s web API Eircode & Postcode solution. It easily integrates with data capture forms on your website using a lightweight jQuery plugin, and with CRM or database application systems capable of using web-based APIs.

How does it work?2020-11-17T11:03:35+00:00

Using elastic search, the look-up control allows users to insert an address. As the user enters data, the control automatically begins searching and provides a list of potential matches as sufficient details are entered. Address results are grouped to improve address capture time.

The process can return the full data string incorporating all Royal Mail PAF and Eircode ECAD (Eircode Address Database) fields for each address such as, alias address information and Eircode/Postcode.

Our solution uses a power-search service that dynamically displays addresses as the user types (i.e. an auto-complete function).

Do you offer international address capture?2020-08-13T13:56:07+00:00

DirectAddress supports both Eircode in the Republic of Ireland and Royal Mail postcodes in the UK.

What are the device requirements?2020-08-13T14:04:51+00:00

In terms of browser compatibility, DirectAddress supports the latest, stable releases of all major browsers (including but not limited to Chrome, Firefox, Safari) and platforms (Windows, iOS and OSX).

On Windows, we support Internet Explorer 10-11, including Microsoft Edge. 

API

What fields does the API return?2020-11-17T16:12:51+00:00

As standard the API returns the full address fields: Address lines 1-6, Town, County and Eircode.

However, it can return any fields as contained within the Royal Mail PAF or Eircode ECAD data file. For example, with Irish addresses the following fields can also be returned:

  • ECAD ID
  • Administrative / Boundary Information (Small Area Boundaries, Electoral District boundaries etc)
  • Geo Spatial Information such as XY coordinates.

 

Uptime

What is the guaranteed uptime of DirectAddress?2020-08-13T13:50:51+00:00

The Microsoft Azure platform assures that the service has a minimum of 99.95% uptime. If Azure is up, so is DirectAddress.
