In most industrialised countries, having a physical address is something we take for granted. It’s hard to imagine life without an accurate address. But this is the stark reality for almost 75% of the world population who doesn't have access to adequate, addressing systems.
Co-founded in London in 2013 by Chris Sheldrick, what3words is the simplest way to talk about location. The system covers the entire world, never needs updating, and works offline. It is optimised for voice input and contains built-in error prevention to immediately identify and correct input mistakes.
The app enables people to find, share and navigate to what3words addresses in 50 languages to date.
Millions of what3words addresses are in use around the world, with thousands of businesses using them to save money, be more efficient and provide a better customer experience.
