Do you have challenges when giving out directions or feel frustrated navigating your way through the city or when visiting a relative or friend?
Finding your way in a country like Ghana without street addresses can be really frustrating. [When giving directions] People always say: ‘It’s by the chop bar’, ‘beside the mango tree’ or ‘after the blue kiosk’. Without a proper address system, things like ambulance services and food delivery services don’t work. For those who have smartphones, Google Maps is their best choice of direction. But let’s face the fact, Google doesn’t really know our addressing system better than we do. Google can’t give you a precise direction to the Waakye seller across the road at Nima or that pub in Asylum Down.
SnooCode app is the answer to the problem of lack of addresses, SnooCode is a digital addressing system developed by a Ghanaian Software Engineer named Sesinam Dagadu. A SnooCode is a 6 or 7-digit alphanumeric code generated as an address of a particular location or home. SnooCode allows you to share your code with the General Public (e.g. Restaurant), Send Privately to Friends and Family (e.g. When inviting them to your House), Share with People You Need to Provide Services to You (e.g. Police, Ambulance & Other Emergency Services) SnooCODE allows every man, woman and child to have a definitive address. A SnooCode like COF-K8D can locate a house to within less than 7 meters.
What Makes SnooCode Unique is it can be used ANYWHERE because you can REMEMBER the code and tell a friend over the phone or even WRITE IT ON A FORM e.g. when you are OPENING A BANK ACCOUNT to give the bank your ADDRESS. SnooCODE gives the tool for anyone, no matter how remote or cluttered their geographic location, no matter their level of education, to precisely pin point their location on any of the available online or offline mapping platforms.
