WeoGeo to Power Pitney Bowes Business Insight's Geosk™ Platform
PORTLAND, Ore., August 04, 2010 - WeoGeo, a leader in spatial content management and Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solutions for the geospatial data industry, announces today that Pitney Bowes Business Insight (PBBI) has selected WeoGeo’s Platform to build its Geosk™ Marketplace and Geosk™ Library services.
The PBBI Geosk Marketplace provides access to a comprehensive data catalog that includes both free and fee-based geospatial data from Pitney Bowes Business Insight as well as content from third-party data providers such as the Ordnance Survey and TomTom. For data providers, Geosk Marketplace will function as an online delivery channel for their products, providing unprecedented access to data consumers around the globe. The new content management service, Geosk Library, will also enable enterprise organizations to store, share, and manage geospatial data from a cloud-based content library. This library can also be available from an appliance for organizations with strict security policies outside the firewall.
“WeoGeo is an excellent fit as a Strategic Technology Partner for PBBI,” said Scott Robinson, Director, Global Data Products at Pitney Bowes Business Insight. “Its innovative and intuitive products integrate Software as a Service, cloud computing, GIS/mapping, and spatial data vending into a seamless offering. These products, and their integration, are critical to us as we build our on-demand data products and content management portfolio offerings.”
“Our value proposition is the ability to effortlessly find and deliver spatial content and services to enterprise-level employees and customers,” said Paul Bissett, CEO and Co-Founder of WeoGeo. “PBBI saw that WeoGeo’s extensive experience, market positioning and product suite could power its vision for a geospatial marketplace and content management services. We are excited to help bring the Geosk Platform to PBBI’s customers.”
