Location, location, location: Gamma targets €2m new business growth

AddressLink will deliver an extensive range of property level data and location intelligence analyses.

Location intelligence services and solutions provider Gamma is targeting €2m in business growth across the island of Ireland with its new service AddressLink.

AddressLink is a web-based API service that delivers an extensive range of property level data and location intelligence analyses to organisations.

“The race to understand and tackle climate change highlights the need for better and more available property level data”

Gamma says the platform has access to over 3bn data points across Ireland and over 10 years’ worth of change information.

Data intelligence and climate change

Based on an address or Eircode, AddressLink delivers details on the potential perils relating to a specific building (including flood, fire, subsidence and crime) and can provide details around the planning application history of a property.

It provides building variables such as height, number of floors, average BER, estimated property value and method of heating. It also includes information relating to a property’s proximity to many services including retailers, fire stations, dangerous building uses and even electric vehicle charging points.

Gamma is already partnering with SEAI and BERWOW in delivering the first online retrofit tool, BERWOW, to SSE Airtricity and An Post to help homeowners understand their retrofit options.

As well as growing its customer base in the Republic of Ireland, Gamma plans to roll AddressLink out in Northern Ireland and is currently developing partnerships with relevant data owners and providers. The organisation has long-standing collaborations with Ordnance Survey Northern Ireland, Ordnance Survey Ireland and Eircode. It also works closely with many commercial data providers and has developed several of its own spatial models for the Island of Ireland.

“The race to understand and tackle climate change highlights the need for better and more available property level data. To both avoid the impacts and reduce our greenhouse gases, we need to understand in detail where our property assets are and what characteristics they have,” said Feargal O’Neill, CEO of Gamma.

“AddressLink will support this and enable organisations to understand property-level risk. It is the first all-island property-level API solution and will soon be available in other markets. Developed over the past two years through a GDPR-compliant and ISO-driven process, AddressLink offers a unique data resource for researchers and analysts across the island of Ireland – one that can reduce risk and aid decision-making.”
