What3words provides a simple way to identify and name anywhere in the world by dividing the world into 3m x 3m squares and providing each square with a unique three-word address. It then converts GPS coordinates into unique three-word addresses, so that people can refer to any precise location in just three words. For example, the GBG Worcester technology hub’s three words are ///goods.brain.paths and the front door to Buckingham Palace, London is ///post.sticks.hello.
Traditionally a customer would give specific and special instructions for where they would like their delivery to be left, this can be open to misinterpretation and potentially result in a failed delivery. It becomes interesting when you combine what3words with address capture.
While the words ‘Gender’, ‘Wiring’ and ‘Patio’ might not mean much individually, to us it's a very precise location. A combination of three words gives your delivery team any 3m x 3m location within a property's boundary without the need for manual instruction from the customer. This means you can leave the package in a safe place at the customer's request without the need for contact, for example, the garden shed, a key safe lock box or even behind a blossoming plum tree.
