Aligned Assets are pleased to announce the introduction of what3words into their gazetteer products. what3words is a simple way to communicate a precise location based on a global grid of 57 trillion 3 meter x 3 meter squares. Each square has a pre-allocated fixed and unique 3 word address. For example, the 3 word address for the front door of the what3words office West London is index.home.raft. Aligned Assets office in Woking is at Why are 3 word addresses useful? Whilst latitude/longitude coordinates are accurate they very hard for regular people to use. By using 3 word addresses with the Aligned Asset product range, Aligned Assets will be able to automatically generate and store the 3 word address for any address held in its Gazetteers. This includes Symphony iManage, Bluelight and International. The 3 word address can then be viewed, searched for and updated within the products mentioned above.
