The Problem

Our client provides software services, to locate and describe addresses with rooftop level accuracy, using high quality data from market-leading partners, including Geoplan.Their powerful APIs and intuitive applications help organisations understand more about their customers to reduce risk and make better decisions. An innovative, highly scalable cloud platform and deep industry knowledge is trusted by businesses from start-ups to global corporations.

Highly detailed and accurate Postcode polygon data frameworks are fundamental to this type of analysis and modelling. This is where Geoplan excels, as the de facto industry standard, for the supply and maintenance of these data frameworks in the UK.

Location Intelligence services help their customers with important property-level risk assessment questions, such as flood and subsidence risk. Helping insurers reduce the questions they ask by pre-filling quotation forms with number of bedrooms, construction type, age, property value and rebuild cost.

The Solution

Geoplan are the owners of the industry standard digital Postcode boundary data file for the UK. We were the first company to develop full digital UK coverage of Postcode Boundaries and have consistently maintained this Postal geography for over 39 years.

We have supplied this critical data set to both Royal Mail, in support of daily postal operations and to Ordnance Survey, as a key service and component provider, in building both Addressbase and latterly Codepoint Unit Polygons.

It is these skills and capabilities that are relied upon, as part of the key fabric of our client’s industry leading product suite, dating back to 2019.
