The service indicator will let customers know if we service their area, from our website they will put in their postcode and if its within a service area they will get a message letting them know we cover their area or not.
Customer will put postcode into text box and hit submit to be presented with a message that we cover their area or not.
The ability to add/remote service centres and a log to keep track of what postcodes are being searched.
Now I am not 100% sure how this will work but I was thinking maybe some integration with googlemaps or yahoomaps. Each of our service centres covers say a 40 mile radius to if the customer enters their postcode and the system checks with google or yahoo how far their postcode if from a service centre, if its within the 30 mile range then they get the nice "you are covered message" or "no sorry we don't cover you".
There is also the possibility to integrate with postcodeanywhere ([url removed, login to view])
