GeoConcept SA, European in Geographic Information Systems (GIS), has announced the opening of GeoConcept International Software SA Switzerland, its Swiss subsidiary. The new subsidiary results from a friendly takeover of its partner, SIT Conseil in Geneva. Under the leadership of Guillaume Beauregard, the new company has six staff including four former members of SIT Conseil.
As a by-product of this operation, GeoConcept SA becomes owner of the leading edge solution, Edilis, a tool for local government management, which it will make available to its international distribution network. GeoConcept International Software SA Switzerland will distribute GeoConcept¹s entire product range.
The company is planning a series of seminars in the near future to present to Swiss partners and users the full potential of GeoConcept¹s range of products.
Regional development and management is a GIS application that is widely used in Switzerland. GeoConcept SA has a large base of installed customers in this field, including the Industrial Services Department of Geneva, and many in French-speaking Switzerland. It will remain one of the core activities of the new subsidiary.
As a result, GeoConcept International Software SA Switzerland will vigorously pursue the sale and development of the Edilis range of products, originally launched in 1995. Edilis responds to the needs of local government and engineering and surveying consultancies in a number of ways including:
· Management of plots using user-friendly screen interfaces,
· Easy manipulation of plot characteristics,
· On-screen display of water and energy networks,
· On-screen display of demographic data,
· Easy interfacing with web applications (via an intranet or extranet)
