Intech Online Services

This document describes the online services that are available for purchase from Intech Solutions Pty Ltd ABN 45 002 812 697 (“Intech”) on its Website.

  1. IQ East Post Web

    Service Description

    This service provides a solution for processing data in preparation for Australian barcoded mail lodgement. The self-managed process will reformat provided addresses into the compliant Australia Post address presentation standard and where appropriate will append the delivery point identifier (DPID), barcode and barcode sort plan (BSP) details required. It has the core functionality of IQ Easy Post for Windows, without the need to install and maintain any software on your PC.

    License Restrictions

    Under this service, subject to payment of the licence fee as specified on Intech’s website, or otherwise quoted to you by Intech, Intech will grants a non-exclusive and non-transferable licence for one individual to use the service, on or from one computer or device, for the period specified by you in the corresponding page on Intech’s website (Term). The service may only be used for internal business purposes for the sole purpose of mail lodgement and in accordance with the following conditions:

    The maximum number of records that can be processed (Batch) is strictly as specified by you in the corresponding page on Intech’s website, and

    The maximum number of records that can be processed during the Term is the number of days in the Term multiplied by the maximum number of records that you are entitled to process in a Batch.


  2. IQ Office Hosted Web Service (Prepaid)

    Service Description

    This service provides a quick, reliable and cost-effective method of capturing accurate addresses and adding value to address data. The service is a SOAP/XML and RESTful web service hosted by Intech that uses the functionality provided by our “best of breed” IQ Office Information Quality software. It enables users to validate and geographically code addresses over the internet, thereby improving accuracy and minimising infrastructure and upfront costs.

    The service provides an Application Programming Interface (API) that allows users to integrate the address validation and geographic coding functionality into existing application and data entry screens. Graphical User Interfaces (GUIs) can also be provided for ‘standalone’ use. A full list of the available functions is included in the IQ Hosted Web Service API Guide that is provided to users when they connect to the IQ Hosted Web Service.

    The IQ Hosted Web Service can be used for Rapid (point-of-entry) address capture or in batch mode. In a Rapid Address capture scenario the functionality allows the user to quickly and accurately capture, validate, standardise, barcode and/or geographically code addresses at the point of data entry. In a Batch scenario the functionality allows the user to nominate a set of addresses as input and define processes such as either validating and barcoding addresses or validating and appending geographic codes to addresses.

    By accessing nationally authoritative Address Reference Files (ARFs), the service enhances the integrity of customer data. This is done by returning a customer address that is both valid in content (accuracy) and format (standard), whilst adding value and reducing data entry costs.

    The functionality of the service is warranted by Intech on a “best efforts” basis for the full term of the license. Intech will provide reasonable support services (having regards to the cost of the service) to assist the Customer in the use of the service.

    License Restrictions

    Under this service, subject to payment of the licence fee as specified on Intech’s website or otherwise quoted to you by Intech, Intech grants a non-exclusive and non-transferable licence for one application to use the service for the period specified by you in the corresponding page on Intech’s website or the period specified in a letter of offer from Intech for use of the IQ Office Hosted Web Service (Term). The service may only be used for internal business purposes. The maximum number of Lookups as defined below that can be performed during the Term is the amount specified by you in the corresponding page on Intech’s website or the amount specified in the letter of offer provided by Intech.

    The customer can use the included Intech standard Windows Graphical User Interfaces (UIs) should the customer not wish to perform their own integration using the available HWS Application Programming Interface (API). The UIs can be configured to access the HWS SOAP interface with access controlled by the customer’s HWS login credentials:

    The service (including data returned from it) may only be used for internal business purposes of the customer to allow:

    1. The customer’s staff to validate and enhance address records owned (or received) by the customer against the AU PAF; and
    2. The customer’s staff to validate, enhance and geographically code address records owned (or received) by the customer against the NZ PAF; and
    3. The customer’s staff to validate, enhance and geographically code address records owned (or received) by the customer against the NZ CNAR; and
    4. The customer’s staff to validate, enhance and geographically code address records owned (or received) by the customer against the GNAF; and
    5. The customer’s staff to validate and enhance phone number records owned (or received) by the customer; and
    6. The customer’s staff to validate and enhance email address records owned (or received) by the customer.

    Data returned from the service must not be returned, presented or otherwise made available to third parties.

    Third parties may separately obtain their own licensing for data from Intech if they wish to receive data returned from the service or use the data in their own environment.

    The service will respond with an error code result to Lookups once the customer’s Included Lookups or plan term expire, whichever occurs first, and the customer will need to purchase a new plan to continue using the service.

    The customer can roll over unused Lookups into a new plan provided that the new plan is purchased before the current plan term expires.

    If the Customer purchases concurrent plans the Lookups included in each plan and the term of each plan will be cumulative. However, the maximum of all cumulative terms purchased concurrently must not exceed 24 months.

    If the customer purchases multiple plans at the same time the terms will be counted consecutively, up to a maximum of 24 months.

    If the Customer purchases new plans during the current term then the current plan will be extended by the new plan term.

    While noting the maximum of 24 months, the Customer can accumulate as many Lookups as required by purchasing the requisite number plans in whatever combination yields the desired number of Lookups. This will enable the Customer to supplement a plan if they anticipate exceeding the included Lookups during the term of that plan.
