The Location Postcode Node allows calls to route to different answer points dependent on the postcode entered by a caller. The basic premise is to allow customers with many locations or franchises to effectively route callers to the closest location via use of a postcode entry by the caller.

Customers at a minimum need to:

  • Upload a template CSV with at least one postcode (Templates at bottom of this article)
  • Complete a 'No Match' Route

The template CSV will contain a list of postcodes as well as the desired desintation for each postcode, the 'No Match' route highlighted in red in the above is a default route for not-entered/invalid postcodes, timeouts as well as a general failover for any errors with individual answerpoints.

Optional requirements are:

  • Adjust the introduction audio to custom instead of default
  • Change the number of input attempts 
  • Change the timeout for inputting an attempt.
  • Adjust the ring time for single answerpoint based configurations

There is two templates available for use:

Platform - Postcode Routing Template (Single AP).xlsx

Platform - Postcode Routing Template (Flows).xlsx

You can remove as many postcodes as desired however if a postcode entered is missing it will route via the 'No Match' route.
