Maporama, leading provider of online location-centric applications and Navigation Technologies have announced a strategic partnership that will enhance location based service (LBS) offerings of Italy’s WIND Telecomunicazioni customers.
WIND’s LBS applications are developed using Maporama¹s Application Programming Interface Library (MAPIL). Thanks to MAPIL, WIND implements the most advanced LBS features, including detailed street-level mapping, door-to-door routing, and proximity search, while making all this functionality available to end-users via any fixed or mobile device.
WIND, an operator of convergent fixed-line, mobile and Internet services (with 25.2 million customers as on March 31, 2002), have chosen the combination of Maporama’s expertise in software tools and service design capabilities with the NAVTECH Real Time Map Service, enabling access to the next generation of maps for providing a rewarding user experience. Data aggregation and maintenance will be performed by Navigation Technologies and accessed via server, allowing WIND to focus resources on developing and providing new wireless and on-line service offerings.
