"We found Allies Computing's PostCoder Web SOAP service using a Google search. Allies' response was so prompt and positive that we felt we didn't need or want to talk to anyone else! Using SOAP, the Web service uses a protocol that is very easy for our developers to integrate into our PHP application. We also received some very helpful technical advice from Allies®." Barry Godfrey, Managing Director. Asked if Barry had any comments about Allies' service or technical support, his reply was "Yes... incredibly helpful and prompt. I was surprised at the extent you were willing to help us."
