DigitalGlobe announced that on March 11, it commenced commercial operations through the DigitalGlobe reseller community. DigitalGlobe has established a reseller community worldwide to market and sell QuickBird products. DigitalGlobe has intentionally selected a small number of resellers, and in many cases has appointed just one reseller to a given geographic region.
By carefully selecting and limiting the number of resellers to represent DigitalGlobe products, DigitalGlobe has committed to work closely with resellers and ensure a fully supported channel. DigitalGlobe’s program is designed to encourage resellers to work closely with customers to meet their specific needs and maintain long term relationships. This close collaboration between DigitalGlobe and the reseller channel ensures the success of our customers, resellers, and DigitalGlobe.
DigitalGlobe International Resellers Include:
- Hitachi Software Engineering Co., Ltd.
- Telespazio S.p.A.
- BMP Geomatica S.A
- GTT NetCorp®
- Radarsat International
- Sinclair Knight Merz
DigitalGlobe United States Resellers Include:

DigitalGlobe is conducting a controlled, three-phase rollout of the company operations that leads to direct product availability in the third quarter of 2002. The first phase of DigitalGlobe’s commercial rollout began on February 1. That phase made QuickBird products available to pre-registered customers as well as to master distributors in Europe and Asia. Phase two was initiated last week with the addition of all DigitalGlobe U.S. and International resellers. The third and final phase will begin when DigitalGlobe opens for full commercial operations later this year.
