Woking, Surrey 31st January 2012 – Symphony Bluelight, the Country’s most advanced emergency service gazetteer management system from Aligned Assets, has been formally released to the UK market.
After four months of intensive development work and the successful live deployment at Hampshire Fire and Rescue Service, all police forces, fire, and ambulance services can start to integrate the Ordnance Survey’s AddressBase Premium into their frontline and back office systems.
Combining a corporate gazetteer management system, web services, data matching software and the ability to automate updates to all other systems, Symphony Bluelight is a comprehensive software suite, built in collaboration with the emergency services to address their specific needs and requirements.
It will enable them to hold AddressBase Premium, import change-only updates, build in and maintain local records, add access points, security classifications and high priority flags to addresses, plus incorporate a customisable list of abbreviations to make searching the data far more intuitive and user-friendly.
“For many, the transition to AddressBase Premium will be a lengthy process,” explained Dinesh Thanigasalam, Managing Director of Aligned Assets. “Their existing address data will need to be matched to and built into AddressBase Premium, which is why matching and validation software is an integral part of Symphony Bluelight.”
“Once the corporate gazetteer database has been constructed, the Symphony Bluelight system allows for all changes to be automatically exported to Command & Control and other systems, whilst web services can be deployed to give access to addressing data throughout an organisation.”
Symphony Bluelight is the only gazetteer management system that was built specifically for the emergency services and is currently the only one that is compatible with AddressBase Premium.

ABOUT ADDRESSBASE PREMIUM
AddressBase Premium provides a complete view of an address or property, including its full lifecycle from creation to retirement. It contains all current addresses, alternative addresses, provisional properties and even historic property information where available.
With an unprecedented level of detail, AddressBase Premium is most suited to the emergency services for whom this level of detail is essential, but also for the utility and telecom companies who will benefit greatly from the pre-build, provisional addressing information.
