BearingPoint selected to roll out Irish postcodes

18 Nov 2013

BearingPoint has been selected to play a leading role in the development and roll out of the new Irish postcode system, it emerged this morning.

Working with Autoaddress and Capita, BearingPoint will play a key role in the roll out of a new system that will provide a unique seven-character code to every letter box in the State by 2015.

Under the new system, Ireland will be the first country in the world to have a postcode that uniquely identifies all properties.  

This will assist individuals, public-service bodies and businesses to accurately locate homes and businesses in Ireland.

“BearingPoint has been working on this initiative for over three years, so we are really pleased to be part of the team which will implement this important Government initiative,” said Niall O’Reilly, director, BearingPoint Ireland.

“The development will bring exciting opportunities across many Irish businesses and sectors, as well as major benefits for consumers.”
