Post code lookup in Alpha Tracker

Thanks to our awesome software developer Tom, it looks like we'll have post code lookups working in our asbestos software Alpha Tracker in this month's release!  This means that admin staff booking in client names and addresses or site details for asbestos reports will be able to type just the post code and Alpha Tracker will then list all addresses automatically.

Keep an eye on the blog and we'll let you know if we get the coding done in time for the July update.
