Code-Point® precisely locates 1.7 million postcode units in Great Britain and Northern Ireland. Each unit contains an average of 15 adjoining addresses.
For direct marketers, Code-Point helps you maximise your response rates by targeting customers in the best postcodes for your offering.
Code-Point is a powerful insights tool. It shows up geographical hotspots so you can target local action on, for example, petty crime or disease outbreaks.
We give you the split between residential and commercial addresses in each postcode. This lets you work out which areas to target for services like business broadband.
Beyond the postcode
Code-Point includes NHS region and area codes, local government county, district and ward codes. This gives you insights over a wide range of public policy outcomes.
Code-Point includes postcodes in Northern Ireland, so you can analyse data and provide accurate online look-ups right across the United Kingdom.
Value for money
Code-Point is an economical planning or marketing tool if you don’t need to analyse data at the level of individual addresses. For even deeper insight, we recommend Code-Point with polygons.
