15 years ago, Guy Mucklow and Jamie Turner setup PCA Predict (formerly Postcode Anywhere), having recognised the potential of using the internet to provide a much more efficient means of delivering data.
PCA Predict is now a market leading provider of cloud-based address management services, processing millions of transactions for some of the largest global organisations on ecommerce sites and CRM systems.
In July 2015 Postcode Anywhere rebranded as 'PCA Predict' to reflect our international expansion and growing range of products. 'Postcode Anywhere' was often abbreviated to 'PCA' so this is a nod to our origins while 'Predict' neatly describes what products like Capture+ (address finder) and Triggar (Big Data analytics, currently under development) do. While our name and website has changed, you can still expect the innovation, great products and quality of service.
With 10,000+ customers, we are the market leader in international checkout optimisation and data cleansing. Our range of innovative web services ensure brilliant user experience on worldwide ecommerce sites and data quality within CRM systems. Passionate about technology we also work with retailers to better understand their own big data in order to convert more online visitors to customers.
Our number one priority is ensuring a reliable and high quality service, we only work with official data partners such as USPS, Canada Post, Royal Mail and TomTom.
All our data services are delivered via the cloud, making it easier for our customers to integrate our services and provide them with immediate access to the very latest data updates.
Each day our 10,000+ customers rely on our services to perform millions of address lookups on their ecommerce sites and CRM systems.
Our experiences using big data got us thinking... what if we could use the power of big data to address the problem of ecommerce conversion improvement? What if we took a totally different approach and created something very different? That’s why we invented Triggar, a new big data platform that puts the massive power of big data into the hands of ecommerce managers. Take the guess work out of the equation, let the data do the talking and turn visitors into customers. Visit the Triggar website to learn more.
