There is a definite buzz in the world of “Geospatial” and I truly believe after some eight years of delivering integrated CRM solutions with Bing Maps from Microsoft, that the commercial sector is beginning to grasp the benefits of using this type of technology in business applications.

From the research I have personally done over the past 9 months (which includes the time before the concept of Mapsimise), the needs for “Big Data” to be consumed in an integrated, analytical and visual way has already moved on in leaps and bounds.

Will Cadell’s post on Forbes does help confirm my thinking that Geospatial is going to be a commercial game changer, enabling business owners to really benefit from a new way of working with, and integrating data.

When our team at Mapsimise started down the intrepid path of the unknown, repeatedly performed market research and discussed and reviewed many offerings, we began to realise the huge potential of the Mapsimise offering to business owners.

We also knew very quickly that when Mapsimise came to market it could not be another mapping platform that displayed some pins of uploaded data on a map… we had to go BIG, we had to go integrated, and we had to also offer an application interface (API’s) to enable those that wanted to do so, go even further!

The journey in just the last six months of our development cycle has been inspiring due to working with such an amazing team. It has also been quite humbling experiencing the commitment made to building a cost effective, cloud-based platform for the mass of business users.

Next month I hope to bring you more updates and maybe, just maybe, the first look of Mapsimise…

Bio – Alistair Dickinson CEO Mapsimise

After 21 years helping organisations with technology, I’ve seen and worked on many projects. As CEO of Mapsimise I’m still very hands on working with all team members and not sat in an office making spreadsheets and crunching numbers.  I’m happy to work on the support desk, take calls and discuss how our tools and technology can help businesses like yours.  You can find me on Linkedin, Twitter or email me directly.  I’m very jeans and t-shirts and still wear Nike Air trainers to the office which I’m told is cool…
