Business Data Available For Use In Economic Regeneration

Woking, Surrey 29th May 2012 – The UK’s most accurate and complete database of business data, available from address management specialists Aligned Assets, is gaining wide spread interest from across the public sector.

In local authorities, the data is proving of particular interest to economic regeneration teams who see it as an opportunity to better engage with local businesses to drive growth and create employment.

Not only does it provide a complete listing of businesses in the local authority area, but contains additional information such as employee numbers, SIC codes and even contact details for the business owners.

In addition to the visible, customer-facing businesses, the database also contains SOHO businesses (Small Office Home Office), examples of which would be plumbers or freelance web designers, who play a critical role in an area’s economy, but until now have been difficult to monitor.

Containing over two million records in total and updated daily by a call centre of 65 people, the business data is being supplied with Unique Property Reference Numbers (UPRNs), which are steadily becoming the de facto identifier of property across both the public and private sector.  Additionally, the records will be supplied with precise geographical coordinates that will allow for pinpoint location accuracy and analysis via Geographical Information Systems (GIS).

“Approximately 8% of the entire database is either updated or validated each month, which equates to well over 150,000 businesses,” explained Andy Hird, Managing Director of Aligned Assets.  “We consider this the most important element as it gives each user the ability to not only have the most up to date information, but in the case of economic regeneration, an ability to track and monitor the changing business landscape.”
