Radar vs. Lob feature comparison

Radar is the developer-friendly, all-in-one alternative to Lob. Like Lob, Radar provides address verification, address autocomplete, and geocoding APIs. However, Radar is up to 90% less expensive, and technical teams prefer our open-source SDKs and developer-friendly documentation.

Whereas Lob includes other services like print and mail APIs, Radar’s address verification, address autocomplete, and geofencing capabilities are part of our Maps Platform, which also includes routing APIs, base maps, and UI kits. And our Maps Platform is complemented by our industry-leading Geofencing Platform, which also supports location tracking, geofencing, place visit detection, trip tracking, and advanced location analytics.

Thousands of companies, including Panera, DICK’S Sporting Goods, T-Mobile, and Zillow, trust Radar’s location tracking SDKs and maps APIs to power location-based experiences across hundreds of millions of devices worldwide.
