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.
