  • Big Benefit of Small Areas

    Posted by Pat Donnelly | Jan 25, 2016

    Small Areas and Delivery Planning

    The generic term "Small Areas" rather underplays their usefulness and functionality.  They provide benefits in a wide range of applications including customer profiling, market penetration, epidemiology, risk accumulation and delivery planning.

    Small Areas are perfect as building blocks to define delivery areas and help group and plan deliveries.

  • Eircode Early Birds – Who’s getting the worms?

    Posted by Feargal O'Neill | Aug 12, 2015

    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.

    Posted by Pat Donnelly | Jul 24, 2015

    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

    Posted by Pat Donnelly | Jul 14, 2015

    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.
