Problem / Opportunity
In the Philippines, an address usually has an additional instructions to locate it properly. One example is, “143 Utot-utot Street, Corner Ipil- ipil and Sampaguita Avenue, House with a red gate under the mango tree, Barangay Basak, Cebu City, Philippines 6000”. The problem with this address is that it’s too long, not properly defined, and ambiguous. It’s very difficult to share and at the same time, very difficult to locate using the current technologies. And for decades now, the postal coding still addresses locations up to the City/Municipality or Barangay level only. Having only one postal code for every City or Municipality or Barangay with thousands of residential houses and establishments. With this, the Philippine government and businesses alike, are having difficulties in delivering goods and services to their end customers.
