No network or internet access is needed. Names & Numbers guarantees continued verification, lookup or data capture.

The names and addresses of 42 million people (c. 14 million with phone numbers), full Royal Mail PAF® data (over 29 million address records) and 2 million organisations (1.6 million with phone numbers) are at your fingertips. All compressed to a tiny 1.5GB footprint.
