Case Study

Consolidation cuts costs in the UK

When scoping out a project for a FTSE 100 company, Hopewiser identified multiple instances of Royal Mail PAF data (each one incurring a royalty fee) and a high number of disparate address capture systems & servers across their business. Hopewiser were able to quickly and simply consolidate this into a single licence and corporate solution that saved significant budget and resources. The new system provides nine highly accurate address lookups per second for 10,000 users.
