Key and Notes

Feature supported o Feature partially supported. See Notes
* The nCode Workbench is a Windows desktop application, also known as the nCode Configuration Utility, because it provides a convenient graphical user interface for viewing and maintaining the many nCode configuration settings which you can use to customize the behaviour of nCode. This application also has batch address processing capabilities and interactive address research capabilities.
1 The nCode Workbench will geocode addresses that it processes and provide address proximity searching capabilities when the nCodeGeo Toolkit is installed.
2 Hosted nCode is installed on Nova’s servers, not your hardware, so any platform that can make web service calls is supported.
3 nCode Web Services does not run natively on IBM i or z/OS or non-listed platforms when they are used as a web server.  Programs on these platforms which can make standard SOAP/XML web service calls can connect to an nCode Web Services server running on one of the other supported platforms.
4 nCode can be compiled to run natively on any platform that has a C++ compiler.  Any other platform which is not listed can be supported as long as it has a C++ compiler.  Talk to us about your platform needs.  We will be glad to help you.
