We've just released CDXZipStream Version 5.2 which is now available for download. This version includes upgrades to the CDXRouteHERE and CDXLocateHERE functions. Up to 25 stops can now be included in a single route for optimized distance calculations along with Trip Summary reports. These changes also include the ability to insert HERE routing and location maps directly in Excel.
For existing users of CDXZipStream the new HERE features will be available to anyone who has purchased in the last year or anyone with an active data maintenance subscription. You will need to download and install the latest CDXZipStream version 5.2 and reactivate your software using the "Account" button in the CDXZipStream menu. Information on setting up a free account with HERE can be found at the following link.
CDXZipStream customers without an active data maintenance plan will be able to try out the new Here functions but will be limited in the number of requests they can make during a single excel session. Your online account at cdxtech.com can be used to purchase a maintenance plan and get full access
We've created a new video demonstrating how to use our online and desktop tools to return county name and other variables from your customer data.
A common business problem is to find the county where a customer resides. This can be required to determine sales tax or to obtain other background information on a location. County can be determined by either the zip code or the full address.
CDX Technologies offers a variety of tools which allow you to determine county and many other data items for a zip code or address. Which product you choose depends on the data you need, the technology platform in use and on the number of reports/requests you expect to do.
To better indicate the enhanced features of this product we are renaming our CDXZipStream Bing version to CDXZipStream Router. This is being done to better indicate the primary product purpose is to calculate driving routes and geocoding addresses. CDXZipStream Router also supports multiple map data sources including Bing, HERE and legacy support of Microsoft Mappoint
