Postcode is designed to make light work of address data entry. Postcode is used in a wide variety of environments including call centres, telesales, contact management – virtually anywhere that fast, accurate address entry is needed.

Postcode supports ‘reverse searching’ to lookup a list of postcodes from a street and town or STD Code. If you need full property level data and to search using any address fragment, choose Postcode Plus or Names & Numbers.

Postcode installs ready for use with virtually any word processor, spreadsheet, contact manager or database without the need for programming. For software developers, Postcode is compatible with AFD’s Address Validation API. This means developers can initially integrate with Postcode, and upgrade to Postcode Plus or Names and Numbers with no redevelopment.
