    As I write this blog, Ireland’s postcodes are exactly four weeks old. Interest in applying the new codes has been high especially among larger organisations. Our first two million records are arriving this week to have Eircodes appended, and we’ve begun work to integrate Autoaddress into a number of existing and new customer websites and applications. The first of these will be live shortly. But which industries are becoming Ireland’s Eircode Early-Adopters? Based on our experience since launch date we’ve seen six key sectors emerging and starting to implement Eircode-based solutions.

  • Responding to FTAI Challenge

    The Freight Transport Association of Ireland (FTAI) believe that Eircode doesn't provide the postcode that its members need. They claim that a courier or parcel delivery person or a flower delivery person won't be able to use an Eircode when trying to complete a delivery.

  • Top 5 lessons from Eircode Launch

    As Eircode is now two days old it is time to reflect on Eircode Launch day and look at the top 5 lessons to be learned from the launch.

    Lesson #1 Irish people are very attached to their address

    Personally I blame the GAA. They've engendered a fierce rivalry among the people of Ireland based solely on County borders, have they no shame? Seriously though, a lot of people found out their Postal Address for the first time, and were very confused and/or angry. I think Shannon Airport is a good example. Before Eircode launched Shannon Airport was in Co. Clare, after Eircode launched Shannon Airport was...still in Co. Clare. The last line in the An Post Postal Address is Limerick, which is more of a routing instruction than an address. The Eircode project is about informing the public of their Eircode, and asking them to use it without changing their address, just add it as the last line. Unless Eircode hired Conor McGregor it was never going to attempt to tell people how to write their address.

  • Brilliant first day of Eircode launch

    Posted by Pat Donnelly | Jul 13, 2015
    Hugs

    In our business you don't get many hugs. People expect to enter their address in a form and move on to the next step of form filling. One of the benefits of adding address validation into this process is to help speed up address entry. Other countries have "official" addresses and postcodes, which makes life much easier. In Ireland, there is no "official" version of your address. However An Post do operate a Postal Address standard. Yesterday Eircode was launched, and over a million were looked up with Eircode Finder which is powered by Autoaddress. Did we get hugs? Sadly no, just a lot of people who weren't familiar with their postal address giving out to Eircode. Yet in order to give out, Eircode Finder was able to provide an Eircode despite the differences in how people record their own address. How? That's what 15 years of providing address solutions in Ireland brings.
