How long have you been a data user? One month? A year? 20 Years? If you’re a team of one, or a leader of hundreds, my guess is that you, like the rest of the world, are dabbling in the big wide world of data.  Unfortunately, as dependencies for data have grown, so too have the complexities of actually finding data that fits your needs.  If you do have the great fortune to find what you are looking for – at the exact moment you are looking for it, frustration inevitably follows. For once you know what you need, trying to evaluate and acquire the data can be just as lengthy and frustrating of a process.

Not anymore.

Recognizing that modern customers prefer a simpler way to do business, Pitney Bowes has introduced automated and self-serve data capabilities through the newly launched Software and Data Marketplace.  This premier data playground was built for data users by data users.  It’s a place to explore, visualize and instantly sample the largest catalog of address-centric data available anywhere. The marketplace lets the user be in control. Here, you can evaluate data products, learn about the latest product offerings, and equip yourself with the knowledge needed to make the most educated purchasing decisions; any time of day, from any device, in any location, at your own pace.

How it works

After a simple registration process, customers have instant access to explore the marketplace.

The site is organized to help customers easily find what they are searching for.  Simply click on a data product of interest to explore sample datasets available for download or visualize the data on a map. Learn more about the data through the detailed data guidebook or request support from a team member.

Within the shop, view the datasets available for online purchase.  Easy to view icons and short descriptions help to identify what each dataset can be used for.

Datasets are presented in a visual way to help bring use cases to life.  These visual representations help customers assess if the data available fit their unique needs.

Stop spending time and frustration searching for data. Get instant access to the freshest, most accurate data in the Software and Data Marketplace.  It’s your one-stop destination to search, discover, visualize and purchase from the largest collection of address-centric data available.

Your data playground awaits. Start exploring.
