Longmont, CO, – January 18, 2010 – The management and distribution of addresses is a problem that has long challenged local government. Errors and inconsistencies in addressing lead to issues such as:
Decreased Revenues – Missing and/or wrong addresses can lead to tax assessment and collection problems, e.g., if you can’t find it, you can’t tax it
Public Safety – Errors and/or inconsistencies can cause emergency services to show up in the wrong place
Voting – Errors can lead to votes being cast in the wrong district
Distribution of Services – Incorrect addressing can affect how services dollars are distributed
Cost of Maintenance – Maintaining multiple addressing systems can lead to duplication of effort, decreased efficiency, and bad data
- Customer Service – Addressing errors can lead to frustration by the public
