Installation Instructions

The 2019Q2.1 release makes improvements to the performance of the verification process and the quality of the results.

Please remember to update both the program files and the reference data. The improvements are tied to the data in the Global Knowledge Repository and the Local API. If you need any assistance with the upgrade of the Local API or the data update process, please contact GBG Loqate Support.

The setup wizard for the Local API can be obtained from our SFTP server. Please contact your account manager to retrieve the SFTP information. If you do not know who your account manager is, please contact support at: LoqateSupport@gbgplc.com
