eSpatial, leading provider of GIS (Geographical Information Systems) and pioneer in GIS delivered via Software-as-a-Service (SaaS), has begun to seek strategic partnerships with other companies in the UK, North American and Australasian markets.
With growing demand for SaaS-based data mapping software in the business market, the company has decided to expand its partnering programme to accommodate the high levels of interest expressed by management consultancy firms.
“We’ve been overwhelmed by the level of interest that members of the wider business community have shown in our SaaS-based data mapping software, eSpatial OnDemand GIS™,” says eSpatial’s Chief Sales & Marketing Officer, Colm Mulcahy.
“By forming strategic partnerships with management consultancies, we hope to be able to satisfy the market demand, which will only continue to increase.”
While a relatively new approach to data analysis in the wider business world, data mapping – often referred to as GIS or geospatial analysis – is a respected discipline in a range of sectors such as urban planning, telecommunications and utilities.
While the technology previously required significant investment in infrastructure, the advent of SaaS-based data mapping software has made the same, robust capabilities available to any organisation at less than a fraction of the price.
With a solid background in producing data mapping software for experts, eSpatial is one of the pioneers who made the leap to SaaS delivery – and has already begun to reap the rewards.
“It’s exciting to see the high levels of interest shown in eSpatial OnDemand GIS,” says Mulcahy.
“The variety of sectors has been fascinating – everyone from sales and marketing companies, to retailers, to waste management companies have been in touch to learn how data mapping can help their business.”
While management consultants have traditionally provided advice and solutions to their clients, they have been unable to provide data mapping capabilities to anyone other than their largest clients, due to the complex setup and substantial budgets involved.
By partnering with eSpatial, consultants will have the opportunity to introduce their clients to data mapping – and a cost-effective, efficient means of data analysis.
“The rapidly growing interest in business data mapping we’ve encountered is only a drop in the bucket – we anticipate huge growth in the future,” says Mulcahy.
“Management consultants who partner with us have the opportunity to stay ahead of the curve and introduce their clients to cutting-edge technology, while simultaneously maximising their own revenue stream.”
With a host of benefits and expert advice and support on offer, the company is confident that its programme will provide partners with a unique business opportunity.
“In a few years, data mapping technology will be commonplace. Engaging with us today provides our partners with a substantial head-start over their competition,” says Mulcahy.
“We look forward to working with forward-thinking consultants who are ready to embrace the future – and this unique business opportunity.”
