Guy Mucklow and Jamie Turner set up PCA Predict (formerly Postcode Anywhere) 15 years ago, having recognized the potential of using the internet to provide a much more efficient means of delivering data.
PCA Predict is now a leading provider of cloud-based address management services, processing millions of transactions for over 10,000 customers for some of the largest global organizations.
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 our products like Capture+ (address finder) and Triggar (currently under development) do. While our name and website has changed, you can still expect the same great products, innovation and quality of service.
We are passionate about technology that improves customer experience and maintains data quality online and in CRM systems. Recently we have been working with ecommerce retailers to better understand their own big data in order to convert more visitors to customers.
With over 10,000 customers around the world, 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 customers to integrate and providing 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 websites 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.

Innovation is at the heart of what we do. It remains fundamental to the way in which we think and work and has, we feel, helped us to establish our position as the market leader in address lookup and verification. We're now making waves in big data and are working with leading retailers to help them understand their customers better.
We believe it's essential to provide a working environment that helps everyone to do their jobs well. PCA Predict's headquarters are situated on a riverbank and our offices are open-plan which encourages an agile, creative and collaborative working style. Every member of our team is an expert in their field, dedicated to their work.
