Making data easy
Kleber is designed to make data easier to access, consume, enhance and develop.
DataTools found that there is a need in the market for a powerful, scalable data services platform that accesses data sources from around the world – yet isn’t complicated to implement or manage.
Kleber’s great strength is its ease of integration. It usually only requires a few lines of code to implement into your current environment & our coding examples help guide you along the way.
And whilst you are accessing all kinds of data – you will never have to maintain it. DataTools manages all the negotiations with data suppliers, loading of data etc. And being cloud based Kleber can easily scale up or down depending on your requirements – taking away all those hardware issues as well.
Kleber is approved by Australia Post and New Zealand Post.
How does Kleber make it easier?
Easy to Access
There is a wide variety of data from all around the world available in Kleber. All data falls into one of 6 categories – Capture, Parse, Verify, Repair, Match and Enhance.
Within each category are a number of data methods. A method is a process or task that can be applied to your input data. For example – one method is to search for an address, another method can retrieve it, a third method may then be called to parse the address into it’s separate elements, etc.
In Kleber all data methods are available to all subscribers and there are no minimum transactions amounts. Whether you choose to access a method once or a million times is up to you.
DataTools is also committed to seeking out new data sources to add into Kleber. Once we’ve completed all the negotiations with the data provider (so you don’t have to!) and developed the new method – it becomes instantly available to all subscribers. For a list of our data partners click here.
This provides even more solution capabilities and means that over time, even if your requirements change – a new solution may already be there to help. You are effectively future proofing your business!
All of this makes it easy to access the data you need.
Easy to Try
Kleber allows you to try out all of the options – even before you become a subscriber!
Our showcases not only describe real life examples of how you can implement Kleber data methods – but they also allow you to enter your own information into the showcase so that you can see it working in action.
Each individual data method also has a detailed method description accessed by clicking on the method itself in the method list. At this detailed level you will find a working example at the top where you can enter data and see how the results are returned.

Easy to Develop
Kleber is a software platform that allows a number of different data sources to be “plugged in” and utilised by all via a simple interface. It’s a web service integration tool – and as such works with both SOAP and REST style web services. We’ve also designed it to be flexible in the response format used. Currently XML and JSON are supported – including the cross domain versions JSONp and CORS.

DataTools have been providing innovative software solutions for over 20 years. We started in the mid 1990’s when we created Australia’s first easy to use and affordable data quality software that was specifically built to deal with Australian data.
Then in 1999 when Australia Post introduced the postal barcoding system we anticipated the growing move to PC based systems and quickly became the postal production software of choice.
Now once again we are leading the way with simple, easy to use software for websites, applications, CRMs and more.
