Loqate, a GBG solution
Postcode Lookup by Loqate

The best possible data quality

Postcode lookup cuts back data entry errors at the point of capture by more than 20%. Checked against Royal Mail PAF®, the most up-to-date Postcode Address File, you can be sure you are collecting correct address data at the point of entry. This reduces the need to clean data once it's in your database and its standardised format ensures efficient postal deliveries.

Reduce costs

Increase business efficiency by speeding up data entry, avoiding typos and the cost of missed deliveries. Remember, the real cost occurs when the delivery fails, causing redelivery costs, and an adverse effect on customer satisfaction, loyalty and future sales. 

Address & Postcode Lookup

Better user experience

Auto-complete results appear as soon as you start typing a postal code, with the nearest locations coming up first.
By providing a quick way to enter address details you allow customers to move smoothly through the checkout and reduce form or cart abandonment. This all helps to improve the end-user experience and ultimately customer satisfaction and loyalty. 

Postcode lookup improves user experience and increases conversions

A smooth onboarding process is crucial. Postcode lookup makes capturing a full address many times faster and more accurate than typing it manually. Getting customers through your checkout or registration process quicker and with less frustration reduces cart abandonment and drop offs. 

Real-time address search

As soon as a postcode, business name or street is typed, suggestions to auto-complete the address are immediately provided, with nearest locations coming up first. 

The traditional postcode lookup needlessly adds extra steps to your checkout experience. Postcodes can cover up to 100 addresses but using our type-ahead solution, you can get to a single delivery point much faster. With our fuzzy-matching capabilities, we allow for abbreviations, misspellings and other errors to ensure the right address is captured every time.
