Where was the delivery address? Could AFD have solved the problem from the information provided?Entering “5a Fulstone Holmfirth HD9” into Postcode Plus, AFD’s property level validation solution instantly found the address:
5a Fulstone New Mill HOLMFIRTH HD9 7DL
AFD can provide latitude and longitude coordinates at the property level, showing a pinpoint location of an address. Using the same mapping tool that the driver was being guided by, a search of the property’s geo code found the precise location.
Point of entry address validation would have solved the address issue immediately, and identifying the property with latitude and longitude would have given the accurate delivery location of the address.
This is one example of the cost of error for an organisation not using AFD Software’s address validation solutions.
When this issue is scaled to an organisation making thousands of deliveries a day, the cost of error increases and brand perception plummets.
Can your organisation continue to rely on “free” addressing solutions? What is the true cost when a delivery failure occurs?
