Mecklenburg County Streamlines Address Creation, Validation and Maintenance with Farragut Systems’ AddressOne Product

July 27, 2009 -- Lafayette, CO – Farragut Systems, Inc. ( www.farragut.com) is proud to announce that Mecklenburg County (Charlotte, North Carolina) has successfully implemented Farragut’s AddressOne product. AddressOne is the first and only GIS-enabled, Commercial-off-the-Shelf product for enterprise addressing.

AddressOne provides the following benefits for Mecklenburg County:

  • Streamlines address creation, validation and maintenance using robust GIS-based tools, leading to increased efficiencies and cost savings
  • Increase in the accuracy and reliability of address data
  • Ability to centrally manage and standardize the use of both physical and mailing addresses
  • Ability to query and validate addressing information using an intuitive browser-based GIS interface
  • Tools to maintain history of retired and obsolete addresses
  • A robust set of web services that allows AddressOne to be integrated with other departmental applications

“Farragut follows software development and project management best practices. They work hard to make sure the behind-the scenes technical details are taken care of,” commented David Reeves, Mecklenburg County’s Project Manager. “They build products in a way that allows us to leverage investments we have made in our technology infrastructure.”

Prior to AddressOne, Land Records personnel had to manually enter the address, parcel ID, and X/Y coordinates for each parcel in the County. In addition, addresses were maintained separately in the Computer-aided Mass Appraisal (CAMA) system, along with the associated parcel ID and ownership information. The Master Address Table and the CAMA system did not talk to each other, but they were tied to the parcel layer in the ESRI geodatabase.

Mecklenburg County GIS Land Records Manager Rhonda Buckner said, “AddressOne disperses the data to the appropriate points in various systems. This eliminates redundant data entry and increases the accuracy and consistency of address data enterprise-wide. We’re able to get all the pieces of the data done in a timelier, more efficient manner.”

AddressOne also provides a mail-friendly address source by supplying addresses in a USPS compliant format and allowing for the maintenance of multiple, purpose-specific addresses that apply to the parcel. A commercial property, for example, may have current addresses for the owner, the property management company, the construction company that pulled the building permit, and others.

“…because of the level of sophistication Farragut has with GIS, they saw how our vision could achieve improved results for all our jurisdictions,” stated Garrett Alexander, Mecklenburg County Tax Assessor. “It goes right down to the people – I think Farragut has some of the most innovative people in this area of business in the nation. Their leadership and commitment to the customer has been a key part of it for me.”
