Finding your way to a specific address is often easier said than done, particularly when the most accurate address identifier is the postcode. While postcodes have their use, they don’t provide the doorstep accuracy that’s needed to maximise efficiency for delivery drivers, staff making field site visits or any kind of care in the community.
New to the market, our address search app, Pinpoint Address, uses the same state-of-the-art technology as our browser based Address search solution, providing accurate, up-to-date addresses every time from your mobile phone.
Using Ordnance Survey’s new product AddressBase Core as the dataset, the app searches against the 33 million current British Standard BS7666 addresses. Fast and resilient, the predictive search pulls in all relevant addresses in order of your proximity to them, using the key identifier of the Unique Property Reference Number (UPRN) and geo coordinates to verify accuracy.
Once you’ve identified the address you want, just tap on it and select the navigation system you want to direct you to the exact location.
Luke Parker, a delivery driver who tested out the app in our beta trial said,
This is a fantastic app. The best there is to be honest. I’d say it saved me around 60 minutes a day.
Dinesh Thanigasalam, Commercial Director of Aligned Assets comments,
The Pinpoint Address app is set to revolutionise the pace of product and service deliveries, as well as community visits for staff and emergency services. With less time spent finding the right address, efficiency, and therefore productivity can only increase.
This first iteration of the app is now available for Android phones on the Google Play Store. We expect our Apple version to be available in the autumn.
We’ll continue developing the app with a view to enabling route planning and navigation for multiple addresses, so do keep an eye out for further developments. Dinesh Thanigasalam
