Addressing political issues

Something New is a political party who face a challenge faced by many organisations: hundreds of emails from a variety of people each interested in different issues. Some issues were national; some issues were local - for example an issue with the nearby hospital; some were hyperlocal - for example concerns over a local park.

To help them process this flood of information, they used Open Addresses’ services to automatically parse and locate addresses in incoming emails. Open Addresses makes this simple to do with services that can interpret the variety of formats that people use when writing their home address in an email and turn the data into meaningful information.

Open Addresses allows Something New to more easily understand where issues are being raised from and provide a tailored response. It helps Something New engage more voters and it helps the voters get their voices heard.
