Worcester, UK – 8 November 2012 – Postcode Anywhere, address validation specialist, today announced its Silver Industry Partnership with Magento, an eBay company and leading eCommerce platform provider that powers over 125,000 online stores.
Free to download for any user, Postcode Anywhere’s address look-up integrations provide UK and international address auto-fill for all the standard entry screens with Magento Community Edition.
Magento is an open source eCommerce solution that gives merchants complete flexibility and control over the look, content, and functionality of their online store. Many Magento customers already use Postcode Anywhere’s software to improve data quality and improve user experience.
Postcode Anywhere’s managing director Guy Mucklow said “We’re very excited to announce our partnership with Magento and we look forward to working with our customers to reduce costs and improve efficiency through the implementation of Magento’s leading software.
“We’re constantly reinvesting in our online address auto-fill technology to do our part in helping online retailers improve the user experience. This includes adding daily updates as standard for the freshest data, and the launch of our new service, Capture+, which auto-fills address fields from any international address fragment, not just the postal code – opening up the benefits of address auto-completion to an international audience.
“Having worked with many retailers, we have an extensive experience with Magento and can help our customers integrate our technology into the Magento store in a matter of minutes.”
Postcode Anywhere and Magento merchants have already seen significant benefits. After using address validation on their Magento eCommerce website, Gasfire.co.uk, has reported a “vast improvement” on their ordering process.
Kevin Law, managing director of GasFire.co.uk said: “We’ve been using Postcode Anywhere for nearly 10 years and when they launched their Magento extension it was the ideal solution. The postcode accuracy ensures our product gets to the right address on time – which is very important. A failed delivery can also have a hugely negative impact. Not only is it expensive and time-consuming to get things rescheduled, but it has a knock-on effect: everything ends up delayed, onerous and frustrating.”
Postcode Anywhere’s extensions are simple to install and fully customisable through the Magento admin panel, with support from the Postcode Anywhere integrations team on hand if required.
Postcode Anywhere will be demonstrating its software on stand 13 at the very first Magento Live conference in London on the 13th of November.
