Irelands New Postcodes - Businesses need to get ready

Ireland is moving towards having each and every business and residential premises assigned with a unique postcode in the country and the aim is to have this launched in April 2015. The government is strongly committed to making a success of the project and to ensure that there is a rapid take-up of postcodes. Several government bodies and businesses have declared their intention to be early adopters of postcodes, based on the benefits that they expect in areas such as: address capture/verification, customer profiling, marketing, delivery/logistics and other location-based services. The purpose of this briefing is to give some insights to SFA members on what will be happening and what you can expect, answering the broad questions about: - What the postcode is and how it will appear - How it can be used and the benefits it can bring - What preparations are needed. This programme is designed to ensure that postcodes will be become widely accepted and used within months of their launch. It is important for SFA members are aware of the programme and how it affects their business. This briefing session will inform members on the considerations to take onboard whilst the postcodes are being implemented. This is a FREE event.
