Andrew Hunkins says that in theory, it all sounds simple but, in practice, maintaining accurate, current databases is a time-consuming administrative burden. "Today, each move, add or change requires the new information to be entered into three databases: PBX, Telident E911 and the public 911 system. Consider that the typical office phone is moved twice each year, which means tens to hundreds of thousands of changes to manage in large corporate, government, medical or university organizations. As a single point of data entry for managing E911 information, 2nd Nature eliminates the repetition by automatically downloading PBX changes into the Telident E911 system and the public 911 system. In addition, it ensures compliance by gathering information from the PBX and Telident E911 databases on a pre-designated schedule or on demand, and reporting any discrepancies."

But even more important, it's a huge relief to know that we are keeping our Telident E911 database up to date, considering at times we were three weeks behind."
