Toronto, Ontario, Canada, 2008/05/31 - Calgary-based Global Mainframe has merged with Toronto-based MapFusion and will begin immediately to market product into two key sectors: Oil and Gas, and Relocation, based on complementary technology solutions as data aggregators - GlobalMainframe.com.
Steve Turcotte, CEO and Chairman of Calgary-based software solutions provider Global Mainframe, is proud to announce the completion of an exciting merger with MapFusion Inc. Under the agreement the companies will begin immediately to share critical knowledge and resources to co-launch and maximize recent respective technology developments and new product releases, such as ERM and MoveWISE.
“It’s taken a few months to get to know each other,” explains Turcotte, “but we’re extremely happy with the result. This provides us many opportunities and we’re certainly better positioned to compete effectively and support a broader portfolio of services.”
MoveWISE, a geospatial-enabled reporting solution, was unveiled this past November for relocation professionals at the ERC symposium in Denver. The product augments MapFusion’s current inventory, including CommunityWISE, a popular online application currently used by consumers across North America. “Based on feedback received at the conference,” Turcotte continues, “our teams succeeded over the past few months to refine the product, and earlier this month showcased an advanced version at the NRC show in San Antonio.”
Located in Toronto, over the past year MapFusion’s executives have been working closely with industry leaders and partners, like Royal Lepage Relocation Services (RLRS), Canada’s largest relocator, to evolve the brand line, integrating new and innovative technology with data-driven maps to reduce the clients’ actual cost of relocation, as well as the personal stress involved with moving the employee and family members.
“As a data aggregator this merger is a logical step for us,” concludes Turcotte. “We are aware that MapFusion has been instrumental in developing proprietary and renowned tracking software for the transportation industry and we intend to leverage our complementary competencies and exploit a lucrative opportunity in the Oil and Gas sector right now.”
