Postcode Lookup

Does anyone know of an alternative to the postcode lookup solution from Allies as it seems they no longer support Sage 50 Accounts?

Postcode Lookup

We use a product called Quick Address Rapid with Sage 50 which works fine for us.

Just information ...    1 thanks

Post codes have a direct relationship to grid references which is how all these RightMove type sites can offer a radius of 5/10 miles etc around a chosen post code

Once wrote a site using post codes/grid refences and from memory at the time there were around 25K postcodes or parts of postcode

This may be of interest - http://www.jibble.org/ukpostcodes/

With this in mind it is not actually too challening to code and it could probably even be done in Excel

Data8 have just released a postcode lookup solutio for Sage Accounts and Sage Instant Accounts:

http://www.data-8.co.uk/integr8/postcode_lookup/sage.aspx

It also validates email and phone numbers at the point of entry.

Price ....

Ouch !

and it's an annual sub, not a once only fee

Now compare this with Cloud accounting app monthly/annual subs - complete & fairly complex systems, rather than a simple lookup process with a front end api - mmm .....

I had a look at their solution and I thought I was priced very reasonably, each lookup only costing a matter of pence and I like that I can have a free trial of it for 30 days as well.
