Avox Limited, the industry leader in legal entity reference data, today launches a series of web-based application programming interfaces (APIs) designed to support faster access to legal entity data, including legal entity identifiers (LEIs), legal names, addresses, industry classifications and corporate hierarchies.
Avox web services will provide clients with an enhanced level of flexibility and efficiency in their interaction with Avox, enabling them to access and manage the data held on their entities of interest in a matter of seconds.
Historically, Avox services have been available via a web portal found at www.avoxdata.com or in a flat file for end-of-day delivery. The introduction of web services means data can now also be delivered on a request/response basis, and will enable clients to draw Avox content directly into in-house applications or using enterprise data management (EDM) technology partners.
The launch provides search, subscribe and update functionality for data across the entire Avox database of over 1.7 million entities, along with the ability to request the sourcing of data on new legal entities in more than 180 countries.
Mark Davies, Managing Director of Avox, said: “We recognise that our clients require high standards of data accuracy and completeness and now more than ever the timeliness of updates is critical. This release is a critical step to help our clients to achieve their aim of much needed STP in the sourcing and ongoing maintenance of legal entity data.”
