SHARE

September 12, 2002–MapInfo Corporation has announced a global partnership with Swedish Mobile Internet positioning specialist, Mobilaris. Through the partnership, the companies will combine MapInfo’s miAware location-based services platform with Mobilaris’ positioning middleware, Pacific Ocean, to provide mobile operators with faster implementation of complete, end-to-end location-based services (LBS) solutions.

The partnership will enable wireless operators to more quickly bring to market a wide range of unique mobile location-dependent applications such as city guides, real-time traffic updates, and “find the nearest” businesses or restaurants. Wireless operators will be able to efficiently differentiate their offerings for all types of customers, resulting in a significant competitive advantage.
