Via the MSA (Mapping Services Agreement) these organisations are entitled to make use of the NLPG, but deployment was often prohibitively expensive with many suppliers charging tens of thousands of pounds for the necessary software. This has changed dramatically with SinglePoint NLPG now available on subscription, which means organisations can hold the NLPG centrally and utilise advanced web services to give all users access to the NLPG data for a fraction of what this would previously have cost.
With SinglePoint NLPG, organisations can start to take full advantage of UPRNs (Unique Property Reference Numbers) for better joined up working, the NLPG’s geographical coordinates for more accurate use of GIS, BS7666 standardisation for ongoing consistency, and a creation methodology that allows for updates as frequently as required. Speaking of SinglePoint NLPG, Managing Director Dinesh Thanigasalam explained, “The SinglePoint NLPG web services have seen uses from CRMs and box office ticketing systems, right through to police mobilisation.”
“Huge savings can be made through the wider use of the NLPG, but all these potential savings have to be off set against the up front cost of the required software. Since we’ve scrapped up front software costs, with SinglePoint NLPG, this is no longer an issue and the NLPG is now affordable for all.” To find out more visit www.aligned-assets.co.uk/singlepoint or email [email protected]
