WCntrConnect™ is GeoResults’ Software-as-a-Service application program interface (API). Think of WCntrConnect™ as a gateway to a 24/7 cloud computing service designed to support the growing demand to accurately identify location based intelligence pertaining to wire center boundary and central office data. WCntrConnect™ makes it possible for customers anywhere in the world at any time of day to validate any physical location with an associated standardized address and accurately identify its wire center boundary and serving central office..
When your company has access to WCntrConnect™ your IT professionals or software developers can connect applications that you may have already online or develop new applications that can be granted the ability to electronically engage GeoResults’ Wire Center Boundary and Central Office datasets with only a few lines of code. WCntrConnect™ takes advantage of Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP) and Extensible Markup Language (XML) to send and receive data to and from the service. This way, your company can integrate the valuable intelligence into your own applications with little to no up-front cost.
A WCntrConnect™ web service call is initiated when a customer transmits any address in the U.S. to the service by sending the request to the GeoResults cloud using XML over HTTP. Once WCntrConnect™ receives the inbound address it is then geocoded to street level accuracy or postal code centroid. The address is then mapped by WCntrConnect™ in the cloud and runs a Spatial SQL Selected statement to locate the wire center boundary that it is contained within. Next, WCntrConnect™ finds the central office that serves the address and calculates the linear distance from point-to-point in miles. Finally, WCntrConnect™ completes the request by compiling the data collected during the process and automatically sending all of the data back to the client.
WCntrConnect™ is so fast the entire process usually takes less than 10 seconds per address from start to finish.
WCntrConnect™ gives customers the advantage of identifying the serving wire center boundary and central office for any address in the U.S. in a matter of seconds. WCntrConnect™ accurately reduces the typical time it takes for a person to manually do the same job that historically can take anywhere from a few days to weeks.
