Interactive maps for BlackBerry users

UK: BlackBerry smartphone users in the UK will soon be able to view and edit map and location data on the move, as Esri UK becomes the official exclusive distributor for TDC’s Freeance Mobile Software in the UK.

According to company, the application allows public and private-sector organisations already using BlackBerry smartphones to maximise their investment in GIS, opening up live dynamic maps, data collection and location services to their staff.

Richard Waite, Managing Director, Esri UK, said, “This will further fulfil our mission to make GIS technology an indispensible part of everyday life.”

Matthew Reddington, CEO of TDC Group, said, “By uniting the strengths of both companies, this partnership adds new value to GIS in government, utilities, public safety and other enterprises within the UK. Using Freeance Mobile software, customers can now leverage all the benefits mobile GIS has to offer such as increased efficiencies, dramatic cost savings and better customer service.”

Freeance software allows any organisation running ESRI’s flagship ArcGIS Server to publish their maps live to an unlimited number of BlackBerry smartphones. This is another opportunity for public sector customers to realise efficiency savings, delivering more for less from their IT investment, the company added.
