These constant updates make PAF the UK’s most up-to-date address database. This ensures that more letters and parcels get to your customers first time. It also speeds transactions to reduce abandoned baskets and enables fast, accurate customer verification to help reduce returns and even fraud.

Five ways PAF and our additional address products can help your business

The Postcode Address File – and its complementary products – offers a host of benefits to organisations of every size and in every sector. It does so in a multitude of ways; but here are five of the most common uses.

Please note: The PAF database is delivered via a Windows based application (SetupRM.exe). If you are using a Mac or Linux/Unix based system you will need to use a machine running Windows or a Windows emulator.
