Well it has been a very interesting 17-month journey so far, and the team have just started the last 12-week sprint for the first release.  In this development period we will be adding all those extra features that makes Mapsimise an offering where users can quickly and easily search, manipulate and display data in new and interesting ways, building new views and performing analysis through augmented data layers.

It really is a very exciting time, when you think back to where we started and today to see the project come to life.  We have been receiving some very positive feedback to our community page on Facebook as the story has unfolded - You can follow the update here: https://www.facebook.com/Mapsimise/

We also have other active social channels on Twitter and Instagram, you can search @mapsimise.

From this post onwards I will be sharing more content and screen shots about how Mapsimise can be used in your business, how connections with systems can be made and how you can upload your own data sets.

From June we hope to confirm our pricing structure for our paid account which will start from around £7 GBP or $9 USD, but this will be finalised next month.

Remember you can still sign up for our early adopter program, and for those of you who want to go a step further and become part of our first 1000 customers and gain discounts for participation we would like to hear from you, but more on that later in the month.

For now, I will round up with an interesting article I recently found about how the retail sector are beginning to make use of location intelligence. Read more here: https://www.cioreview.com/news/location-intelligence-boosting-retail-efforts-nid-28646-cid-38.html

As mentioned previously Mapsimise is not our first offering in the geospatial space and for those of you that use Microsoft Dynamics 365, we released our first software offering in 2011 called MyGEOMap (see here: https://downloads.mycrmgroup.com/Products/2016/eMap) and we have seen this product offering do well with subscribers as it helps to give real data insight.

What is more, we have retail customers in the UK and the USA actively using our MyGEOMap offering in their Microsoft Dynamics 365 subscriptions, by using it to plot retail activity of customers and analyse activity around shop and retail-outlet locations.

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…
