GGP Upgrades e-Government Software for Better Connected Public Services

  • Rating12345

PR – GGP Systems has released a new version of its award winning gazetteer
management software. GGP eNLPG is specifically designed to facilitate access to
and management of the National Land and Property Gazetteer (NLPG) via the
Internet or corporate Intranet. Already providing benefit to Local Authorities
and Emergency Services across the UK this latest version of the software also
includes advanced search and reporting functionality, faster processing and
improved compatibility with the national addressing standard BS7666 DTF

The NLPG is the first and only national, definitive
database of addresses since the Domesday Book, joining up service delivery,
transforming government and delivering e-Government initiatives. GGP’s Gazetteer

enabling easy access to and dissemination of Public Records via the web
delivering real benefits to, not only, Councils, Emergency Services and their
partner organisations but also to the local community.

public services stronger, more efficient and more accessible than ever before,
and we can only achieve this by making the most of the opportunities that the
digital age opens up.”
The NLPG enables various Local Authority
departments to offer a true ‘joined up’ government with benefits that go beyond
service delivery. Fraud prevention, tax collection and disaster planning all
benefit from the fact that each property is given a ‘Unique Property Reference
Number’ for life, transcending numbers, names, descriptions and postcodes. The
NLPG has also been chosen as one of the foundations for a GBP 1 billion
Government initiative to increase resilience and enhance the capability of the
