Welcome to the CDX Technologies August 2018 Newsletter


This month we cover a new CDXZipStream Distance Matrix template, a demographic data update, and how to upgrade your CDXZipStream version.


Here is our latest blog posting -


CDXZipStream ZIP Code Distance Matrix Template


We've added a new tool to our suite of templates to calculate a distance matrix using the CDXDistance formula.  CDXDistance is a straight-line "as-the-crow-flies" distance calculation for ZIP Codes, available in the CDXZipSteam Lite version and higher.  Because all the calculations are based on our local database this operation is extremely fast and can work on large data sets easily. This template is free and will work with both registered and demo versions of CDXZipStream. The template can be downloaded here.


This allows an easy comparison of all combinations of potential ZIP Codes. Just enter your ZIP Code lists across one column and one row and press "Calculate" to proceed. An option is available to return distance in miles, kilometers or nautical miles. The template is also able to process Canadian postal codes if that CDXZipStream option is installed.


You can visit the templates page on our website to download this and many other free CDXZipStream tools.


Demographic Data Update


If you have the CDXZipStream Premium version or better we've just released an update to the CDXCBSA, CDXCounty and CDXState database tables. Population estimates have been added for the 8-year period 2010-2017 with the latest data from the U.S. Census. Monthly unemployment data has also been updated through June 2018.


How to Upgrade Your CDXZipStream Version


If you need to add additional features or demographics to the CDXZipStream version you purchased there is no need to pay full list price. You can upgrade to any higher version for just the difference in price as listed in the CDXZipStream pricing table.  For instance, if you own the "Basic" version of CDXZipStream and wish to upgrade to "Premium" you can upgrade for $100 ($299.95-$199.95).


Please refer to our version comparison or finder tool to identify the upgrade version that will best meet your needs.


To upgrade, log into your online account and in the CDXZipStream dropdown menu select "Upgrade Licenses". Then just select the version you want and confirm your purchase information. Once purchased, you will need to reinstall and reactivate the CDXZipStream software. If you upgraded to a Premium demographics version you will also need to download the associated database.


Latest Data Updates


Canadian and U.S. data feeds of CDXZipStream were updated as of August 25.  If you would like to update your database to reflect these changes, select the "Account" option on the CDXZipStream commandbar and click on "Check for Available Database Updates".  You can then update each database as required.  Please note that updates for the classic version of CDXZipStream have been discontinued.


CDXZipStream updates are a part of the one-year software maintenance subscription included with your purchase.  If you would like to extend your subscription, please sign in to the CDX Technologies website and from the account area for CDXZipStream, select "Buy Data Update".  The maintenance agreement also includes access to the latest version of CDXZipStream. If you are using our discontinued "Classic" version you can upgrade to the current software by purchasing this subscription at a fraction of the list price.


As always we hope you find the information here helpful for you and your organization.  You can contact us with your feedback and suggestions by replying to this email.
