Windsor, 25 March 2008 – Pitney Bowes MapInfo and Pitney Bowes Group 1 Software, the leading providers of location intelligence and Customer Communication Management solutions, today announce the details of Interact 08, the first-ever definitive event for its user community, taking place on 29-30 April 2008 at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole.
The two-day event will bring together Pitney Bowes MapInfo and Pitney Bowes Group 1 Software users for the first time to hear from President Mike Hickey on the exciting and pivotal developments of the newly integrated organisation.
With over 30 ‘opt in’ sessions, the conference has been designed to maximise the time and interests of public and private sector delegates across industry sectors from retail and finance to local government and utilities. Each session has been carefully planned featuring selected key customer speakers, important technical updates and a raft of showcases. Product updates will include the unveiling of a new e-messaging service and the latest interactive document application, among others.
“Interact 08 is a truly compelling proposition for users from all sides of the organisation,” said John O’Hara, Executive VP, International, Pitney Bowes MapInfo.
“Location intelligence is coming of age, and this is the platform from which we will all be inspired to see previously untapped opportunities for customer and location technology integration.”
Customer insight will be given from a wide range of user organisations including Liverpool City Council, Coventry City Council, Slovak Telecom and West Midland Police, as well as industry experts like Steer Davies Gleave and WRC. A well considered agenda of technical workshops will provide valuable understanding of developments and integration opportunities across all flagship data, software and services, including Group 1 Software customer management tools (CCM and CDQ), GeoPlatform, Confirm and MapInfo Pro.
