It’s early January 2018, it’s a typical winter’s day and I’ve just concluded a number of meetings about our next generation mapping solutions for business, to benefit from great mapping and Geospatial technology incorporating Google Maps.
Filled with the trepidation that our team are about to set off on a development adventure that will be far bigger than anything we have developed or worked on before, the fear of signing off on the project fills me with a new kind of excitement that includes a little fear.
Our back history has been to provide integrated Geospatial and mapping solutions for the past eight years to customers that have used Microsoft Dynamics in various forms and versions. Our thought process now is to take what we have learnt and build a complete business platform that not only delivers great functionality, but to swap from Bing Maps to Google Maps and deliver a solution that can be used by business users across the globe.
The plan is to enable users to work with data from many different sources including business systems like Microsoft Dynamics 365, Salesforce.com and SugarCRM as a starting point. We also plan to include service connectors like, DotMailer and Mail Chimp along with many others, giving end users the ability to not only map data but use it with different services all from one application.
In reading this you maybe able to comprehend the challenge ahead, for our team and the level of technology, expertise and research required. If not, don’t worry as our team are ready for the challenges ahead and it is anticipated that over the next few months, we will uncover a range of show stoppers that are going to test our own internal capabilities.
To share the concept with you at this early stage is critical to our team as we want you to follow our journey, later this year we will share social media links and some initial design of brandings, and the challenges we faced along the way.
UPDATE December 2018
We now feel confident after a few bumps in the road to publish our social media links for 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…
