    I need help in getting valid address nearest intersections in our dispatch software.

    We are a non profit all volunteer organization in Brooklyn NY sending drivers to take elderly patients to doctors and therapy center, we have a dispatch software were we enter pick up locations, but our programmer cant find a database that we can get updated nearest intersection, so if we enter for instance address “123 Main St.” to return results “between Ave. A and Ave B”, I looked allot on the web but find any detail help.

    Please let me know if I can call you regarding this matter.
