Mapping systems provider Spatial Vision has announced a partnership with GIS Cloud, a multinational provider of next-generation Cloud-computing that manages location information.
Terms of the deal effectively see Spatial Vision as the GIS Cloud partner for Australia and New Zealand.
GIS Cloud develops mapping technologies designed to provide an alternative for visualising, analysing, collecting and sharing geospatial data.
Distributed as a Software as a Service (SaaS), as the reseller of GIS Cloud, Spatial Vision now aims to extend this opportunity to organisations operating in Australia and New Zealand.
“Cloud technology is a game changer,” says Glenn Cockerton, Managing Director, Spatial Vision.
“For many organisations, desktop/server web mapping solutions are expensive, inflexible and resource-dependent.
“But a cloud-based solution such as GIS Cloud opens many opportunities to organisations of all sizes.”
At present, GIS Cloud solutions adapt to the growth of each organisation and remove the need to purchase, maintain, upgrade and resource IT services.
“By introducing GIS Cloud products to the Australian and New Zealand market, Spatial Vision can directly help organisations improve their business and make efficient use of mapping solutions,” adds Igor Farkas, Partner Managerm GIS Cloud.
“We can help spread the word about GIS products and introduce local companies to affordable yet powerful mapping solutions.”
According to Cockerton, a fundamental feature of GIS Cloud’s mapping solutions is Mobile Data Collection, which provides customers with immediate access to their assets and information in the field.
“With GIS Cloud’s Mobile Data Collection, customers can instantaneously observe and report issues, such as broken signs or graffiti,” he adds.
“Information can be sent directly from your iOS or Android device in seconds, reorganising project management into an incredibly easy and collaborative task.”
Echoing Cockerton’s comments, Farkas claims that different industries find Mobile Data Collection useful because it adapts to their needs and gives endless options to tailor the collection process.
“The idea is to make sure you are able to successfully manage your data collection project, with or without Internet connectivity,” he adds.
“No matter how remote your location is, we work hard to make sure the apps work on all devices.”
Spatial Vision and GIS Cloud anticipate their partnership will enable organisations across Australia and New Zealand to take full advantage of the Internet’s capabilities and the mapping services it offers.
“Our mutual goal is to break barriers and create new trends, and we are confident our partnership with Spatial Vision will help us achieve this,” Farkas adds.
