The advantages of being web-based
With traditional software programs, users must download and install the programs onto their computers in order to use them. Inevitably, more time and money has to be spent on maintaining and updating that software, which is only available on that one computer anyway.
When software or services are web-based, however, there is nothing to download, install, maintain, or update like with traditional software programs. Web-based services and software, such as LiveAddress, work anywhere on any computer you're using. Web-based programs are as easy to use as opening your web browser and going to a website.
Alternative address verification services require customers to download, install, and update software. SmartyStreets is pleased to offer LiveAddress, which requires only your web browser. You can use it anywhere, anytime. There's no updating or maintenance for you to do. Your costs (and our costs) are lower, and that's the way it should be.
