Welcome to the CDX Technologies June
We've added a new feature to all versions of
CDXZipStream for address correction and ZIP+4 data by linking our
CDXGeodata web service. Also covered are new demographic items
tailored for the medical and insurance industries.
Here is our latest blog posting -
New Demographic Data Items
We've added new items to our premium demographic ZIP
Code database which should prove especially useful for the Medical
and Insurance Industries. The data is determined by Social Security
and the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMMS) based as of
1. SSAStateCountyCode - The State County Code as set
by the Social Security Administration for Medicare and Medicaid.
2.MedicareCBSACode - The CBSA Code for this ZIP Code
as set by the CMMS.
3.MedicareCBSAName - The CBSA Name for this ZIP Code
as set by CMMS.
4. MedicareCBSAType - The CBSA type for this ZIP Code
as set by CMMS. Metro or Micro.
5. MarketRatingAreaID - The ID of the Insurance Market
Rating Area as set by CMMS.
Also an additional item for general purpose use:
6. CountyMixedCase - The primary county name in mixed
New CDXZip4 Function with CDXGeoData
A new function called CDXZip4 is now part of CDXZipStream and provides
address correction and USPS ZIP+4 approved formatting using our
CDXGeoData web service. Available in all versions of CDXZipStream
with a CDXGeoData API key, you can now perform address verification and
correction using U.S. Postal Service databases. Get address data in standard
format and find ZIP+4 Codes even for addresses with missing data.
The CDXZip4 function can be used by right-clicking on
any cell in your worksheet and selecting "Insert CDXZip4
Function" from the new CDXGeoData Functions drop-down menu.
Provide the input address information as either a single-line or
multiple-line address. Multiple-line input will look like this:
To gain access to this functionality you must have a
CDXGeoData API Key which is not part of the CDXZipStream license.
Tokens are used to access CDXGeoData with different levels for
each service request. This ZIP+4 address verification will
require 5 tokens per request. Any number of users can access the
CDXGeodata service with a single API key. You must update your
installations with the latest CDXZipStream demo installation to have
access to this feature.
A free CDXGeoData account comes with 1000 tokens that
can be used for evaluation, development and non-profit use. Additional
tokens can be purchased on an as-needed basis with the following pricing. The tokens are good for up
to one year. It's easy and risk-free to get started with
our free account.
Canadian and U.S. data feeds of CDXZipStream were
updated as of June 26. There were 674 changes made to the U.S.
ZIP Code database this month. 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
