Public Sector relying on AddressBase

Ordnance Survey now has over 75% of previous legacy address users in the public sector across Great Britain using or migrated to the AddressBase product family.

This includes Police, Fire and Ambulance services as well as local and central government departments. From the start of the GeoPlace partnership to the release of the AddressBase products and the inclusion of Scottish addressing data, its success is making a positive impact to the delivery and efficiencies of many public sector organisations by their use of this unique addressing dataset for Great Britain.

The AddressBase product family is the result of a huge amount of work and dedication from Ordnance Survey, local government Authority Address Custodians, GeoPlace, Scottish Improvement Service, Royal Mail and other organisations realising the GB Government goal of having one core addressing dataset framework for the whole of the public sector.

It is the powerful combination of Unique Property Reference Number (UPRN) with the TOID; other location data and individual organisation’s business intelligence working together as an enabler to link and then unlock intelligence from critical public sector datasets.

With the recent introduction of the Royal Mail PAF Public Sector licence (PSL), now available to all members of public sector organisations through the PSMA and OSMA, there is now a growing momentum with real opportunity to seek wider efficiencies using address data across the whole of the public sector and to deliver smarter citizen services.

We have published a range of case studies that illustrate proven achievements from public sector organisations using AddressBase; why not share them with your colleagues?
