Dublin, November 19, 2013 - Management and technology consultancy firm BearingPoint will have a major role in a project to rollout the world’s first postcode system that uniquely identifies all mailable properties in a country. BearingPoint (www.bearingpoint.com) will be working as part of a multi-vendor team with Capita and Autoaddress.

The project will be implemented in Ireland where Minister for Communications, Mr Pat Rabbitte TD, recently announced that he had got agreement from the Government to implement a new system that will provide a unique seven character code to every ‘mailable’ address in the State by 2015*. It will assist individuals, public service bodies and businesses in accurately locating homes and businesses in Ireland.

“BearingPoint has been working on this initiative for more than three years, so we are really pleased to be part of the team that will implement this important government initiative,” commented Niall O’Reilly, Director, BearingPoint Ireland. “The development will bring exciting opportunities across many Irish businesses and sectors, as well as major benefits for consumers.”

BearingPoint brings an established track record in managing and implementing major business and technology change programs for public services organizations. “Over the last 15 years we have been engaged by a wide variety of Central and Local Government Departments and Agencies to support the delivery of new and enhanced public services to Irish businesses and citizens”, added Andrew Montgomery, Partner, BearingPoint Ireland. “We look forward to working in partnership with both the Department and the other public sector stakeholders on this major program.”
