Woking, Surrey, United Kingdom, 2013/03/20 - Gazetteer specialists Aligned Assets announce the technology transfer of GeoStore spatial data warehouse from Pitney Bowes Software - Aligned-Assets.co.uk.
Aligned Assets and Pitney Bowes Software (PBS) are pleased to announce the technology transfer of PBS’s GeoStore Spatial Data Warehouse to the Woking-based gazetteer specialists.
As of March 2013, all support, account management, billing and future development passed to Aligned Assets, who have expressed their intention to invest extensively in the product.
GeoStore is a geographical data store that enables users to share geographical information across departments and with external organisations. It simplifies the administration, management and the import/publishing of spatial data, allowing this data to be easily integrated into both desktop and browser-based applications.
It is able to import, store, manage and publish common spatial formats such as Shapefiles, DWG and MapInfo TAB, as well as GML, XML and CSV.
Speaking of the transfer, Managing Director of Aligned Assets, Andy Hird said,“We are delighted to add the GeoStore application to our existing range of gazetteer solutions.”
“We have always focused on the corporate use of data in order for customers to make gains in efficiency, and through that save money whilst delivering a better service to the customer. What GeoStore can offer is exactly in line with this philosophy.”
“For existing GeoStore customers this is a very positive development as we are able to draw on our vast experience in developing industry leading software products, an experience from which GeoStore can only benefit.”
James Buckley, Senior Vice President & General Manager Customer Data and Location Intelligence at Pitney Bowes Software added,“We are thrilled to now have a solid future for GeoStore and our GeoStore customers. Aligned Assets brings a wealth of expertise in the spatial data management space and we too believe it is a great fit within the Aligned Assets portfolio”.
Aligned Assets will be engaging directly with every GeoStore customer to determine a development priority list and plans to hold the first user group meeting within the next few months.
