BearingPoint has been selected to lead the development and roll out of the new Irish postcode system. After the go-live, Ireland will be the first country in the world with a unique coding per home and business.
The international consulting firm will work closely with Autoaddress and Capita, the Irish Minister for Communications Pat Rabbitte Thas confirmed in a press communiqué.
The new system will provide a unique seven-character code to every letter box in the State by 2015. Following the go-live 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 of BearingPoint Ireland. “The development will bring exciting opportunities across many Irish businesses and sectors, as well as major benefits for consumers.”
The Irish office of Bearingpoint is located in Dublin en has approximately 200 consultants. Bearingpoint in Ireland recently won two large cloud computing contracts.
