New postcodes will benefit business and consumers
Ibec, the group that represents Irish business, today welcomed the launch of Eircode, the new national postcode system, which it said will reduce business costs and benefit consumers.
Ibec Senior Executive Aidan Sweeney said: “Ibec has long pushed for the introduction of postcodes. Having such a unique identifier can reduce costs for businesses through supply-chain and administrative savings. Postcodes will benefit retailers and consumers by improving online shopping and home delivery services.
“It has taken over ten years to get to this point. The communications campaign has only just begun. Postcodes are not just about postal services. For example, the new system should allow for the better planning of public services. The business community will be integral to the successful roll-out of the system, especially those operating large databases.”
