East View Cartographic has recently announced the addition of global outsourcing management services for mapping and GIS data production. EVC will provide vendor vetting, project management, quality control, global language/cultural support as consultant or prime contractor. Outsourcing is a standard practice in the geospatial industry. While the benefits of using skilled, scalable, on-demand resources can be compelling, the challenges of remotely managing projects are significant. EVC provides access to world-class technology by evaluating a broad spectrum of partners and matching customer project requirements with vendor strengths.
Benefits of EVC’s global outsourcing management services for mapping and GIS data production include the gain of access to world-class capabilities and technologies on a project by project basis and expansion of existing internal technical capabilities and production capacity. This service will speed up time-to-market and project completion,
lower project costs and distribute overall project risk. Digital map data is increasingly important for a variety of commercial and government applications and EVC is well qualified to support clients with the global outsourcing process as a consultant, project manager, or prime contractor. EVC’s services include vetting and selecting outsourcing partners, project management (onsite or remote), quality assurance, and language and cultural support with global vendors. EVC is the provider of authoritative global mapping products and geospatial data and sees global outsourcing management services as a natural extension of its business.
