Postcode Anywhere’s flagship product is its address look-up software, offered through a “pay-as-you-go” payment model which offers a cost-effective solution to many, and particularly smaller, companies. It supplies other products through its Software as a Service (SaaS) model. These include: lifestyle profiling, international address data management, bank and credit card validation, geocoding and route optimisation.

oftware as a Service (SaaS)

Postcode Anywhere was an early advocate in the UK of Software as a Service, and has had many successes to date with clients such as Xerox and UNICEF. The aims of SaaS are to provide easier to set up and cheaper services through the ditching of more traditional static models of software licensing which have been so successful for companies like Microsoft. As such, SaaS is seen as part of the so-called Web 2.0 revolution.


Postcode Anywhere continues to receive positive local press [] but has yet to receive more mainstream recognition, despite its market penetration and numerous awards.


The company is looking to expand its US presence with sister company TheWebService.
