    Enterprise Geocoding Module – Support Announcement

    (Please ignore this notice if you have already migrated to another solution)


    Dear Precisely Customer:

    Precisely is announcing the process of discontinuing the Enterprise Geocoding Module (EGM) within our Spectrum technology platform:

    • Spectrum Enterprise Geocoding Module (EGM)

    This letter is for EGM customers, to inform of Precisely's end-of-support and end-of-renewal plans.

    We are committed to providing the highest level of customer care, while you transition to one of our other industry-leading geocoding solutions.  To better prepare for your transition, please note the following key milestones:

    Official End-of-Life


    Over the last 7 years, Precisely has collaborated with its most demanding customers to refine the Spectrum Global Geocoding Module (GGM) product and strategy.  GGM provides substantial improvements over EGM in these key areas:

    • Removed complexity:  One standard global geocoding API that allows you to make informed business decisions and streamline processes.  GGM offers one standard way of calling preferences for US and Non-US, standardizing the input and output.
    • Global Address Autocomplete capabilities:  Streamline processes by quickly returning a list of addresses based on partial address keystrokes using in-country standards.
    • Increased performance:  Able to scale more efficiently.  Performance can be optimized based upon Spectrum resources (i.e., RAM and CPU). 
    • Streamline with global geocoding in one stage; no more spaghetti-looking Spectrum flows!

    For the reasons listed above, GGM has superseded EGM in quality and accuracy and is expanding the types of business problems being solved today.  As a result, most Precisely customers have now adopted GGM as their geocoding software of choice; therefore, we have decided to retire EGM.  As one of our valued clients, we are offering the following migrations paths:

    • Spectrum Global Geocoding Module:  Spectrum Global Geocoding is delivered as a Spectrum technology platform module and can be built into stages just like any other component.  Spectrum technology platform must already be installed.
    • Geo Addressing SDK:  Geo Addressing SDK runs spatial processes natively within cloud-native and big data environments using Kubernetes and Spark cluster deployment to unlock valuable context for more informed decision-making with the ability to geocode addresses.

    Please contact your Sales Account Executive to hear about more exciting features!


    Yours sincerely
