Leading Location Intelligence Solution Connects to the Cloud to Simplify Map Creation and Sharing, Enabling Successful Operational Decisions and Customer Engagements
TORONTO, August 05, 2010 - Pitney Bowes Business Insight (PBBI) announces Pitney Bowes MapInfo Professional® v10.5, the latest version of the company’s flagship application for business and mapping analysis. MapInfo Professional enables organizations to capitalize on location-based data, gaining deeper insights into their customers, resources and overall operations to make better informed decisions.
MapInfo Professional v10.5 provides organizations with new and powerful methods for sharing maps across the enterprise. With MapInfo Professional v10.5, organizations can more fully interact with the cloud, including capabilities to publish maps to and access data from the cloud. Users can publish maps to the cloud using MapInfo Professional v10.5 in conjunction with MapInfo Stratus, the company’s first completely Software-as-a-Service (SaaS)-based solution for spatial location-based data and services. MapInfo Professional v10.5 also includes integration with Bing Maps and increased support for key industry standards such as the OGC Catalog Services Web interface, streamlining access to data residing in the cloud and additional publishing features.
“MapInfo Professional helps us to visualize and track information about mussels from seed through harvesting in real-time,” said Lea Murphy, project manager, Cole’s Mussel Farm. “Industry regulations require mussel farms to be able to trace the origin of the cultured mussel from seed to market. With MapInfo Professional we are able to visualize our mussel leases and trace mussels through the entire lifecycle. MapInfo Professional is an easy-to-use tool that provides us with another dimension of information, helping ensure that we meet regulations while increasing operational efficiencies.”
