August 31, 2009 — Australian spatial business intelligence pioneer Integeo has entered an agreement with Integeo China Pty Ltd that entitles Integeo China to promote, distribute and support Integeo’s Map Intelligence platform in greater China. Integeo China has responsibility for Chinese translation and quality assurance for Map Intelligence running on Chinese operating systems using Chinese maps.
Integeo China is well advanced in developing its channel in China and already has several partners with early customer deployments of Map Intelligence in areas such as Telecommunications, Emergency Management, Government, Petroleum and Gas.
“We see China as a huge potential market for our product and are very pleased to be taking this next strategic step into the Chinese market,” said Integeo CEO Peter Rossiter. “We have put in a lot of effort working towards this goal over several years with Integeo China’s CEO, Dr Chuan Zhang, and the feedback we’ve received from the region has been very positive.”
Dr Zhang confirmed this upbeat appraisal, “Map Intelligence offers out-of-the-box a large range of spatial visualization and analytical functionality and is particularly attractive because of its ease of use and deployment, hiding the inherent complexity of the underlying mapping technologies.
"We have already seeded our China operations by establishing relationships with some carefully selected China-based solution providers in key regions of China and the results are very encouraging. Our goal is to become the premier China-based solution provider for location intelligence.”
To coincide with the official announcement, Integeo has launched a new Chinese section of the Integeo website – www.integeo.com/IntegeoChina
Integeo's Map Intelligence enables superior and more agile decision making by domain experts who do not need skills in programming to generate information-rich, interactive mapping applications for all levels of an organization. Map Intelligence is an award winning, patented turnkey product with a large range of out-of-the-box spatial visualization and analytical functionality to do more than just display data on a map or floor-plan.
Integeo’s headquarters and R&D facility are located in Sydney with branch offices in Canberra and London UK. Integeo is supported by a global partner and distributor network including Integeo Iberia (Madrid, Spain) and Integeo SE Asia (Singapore). Integeo has strong technical and marketing relationships with all the leading database/business intelligence and mapping vendors.
Integeo's Map Intelligence is an award winning, patented product merging business and location intelligence and is fully internationalizable to facilitate regional differences.
Map Intelligence interoperates with map servers from Pitney Bowes (MapInfo), ESRI and GeoServer, the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) reference server. Because Map Intelligence is OGC compliant, Map Intelligence can utilize any OGC compliant map server. Thus Google Earth can be used for powerful 3D visualizations and Google Maps as a web-service to display images and data sourced from Google.
Integeo has offices in Australia, Singapore, Spain and the UK and customers across a wide range of Federal, State and local government agencies and commercial enterprises around the world.
Integeo is part of the Forge Group and was created following the sale of Forge's Business Intelligence products company, QIQ Solutions, to Hyperion in July 2004. http://www.integeo.com
