The Latest What3words Developments

There are two new exciting tech developments that have just been released through what3words…

…the navigation technology that we use to locate our street furniture.

We can now speak 3-word locations using the app, rather than use traditional addresses. This way any of the team can quickly find sites whether they are identified or not.

They can also use the new free 3WordPhoto app, that adds address labels to your photos. This makes it easy to share cool locations with friends, clients and social media followers.

We will be trialling these new features very soon with our on-road maintenance team. You can try what3words yourself today and look out for the fun three-word locations on our street furniture.

 
Please get in touch if you would like to find out more about what3words and yStop.
