Cambridge, 15 July 2020 - IQGeo (AIM: IQG), a developer of geospatial productivity and collaboration software for the telecoms and utility industries, today announced a new commercial partnership with Mapcom Systems. Under the terms of this new partnership Mapcom will OEM the IQGeo field mobility software to be included as part of their M4® Solutions software suite for the telecom industry.
The Mapcom customer base of over 150 telecoms operators will benefit from IQGeo’s flexible mobile software supporting their network maintenance, operations, field survey and walkout activities. The IQGeo software is device independent, allowing operators to equip their staff or contractors with any tablet or mobile phone, and to work online and offline in areas where wireless connectivity may not always be available.
The redlining and data capture capabilities of the IQGeo software will provide a major productivity gain for Mapcom customers. They can now easily capture network information in the field on any device, and share it digitally with office-based engineers, improving data quality and collaboration with field crews. The IQGeo software helps network operators digitize their field operations, eliminating error-prone paper and spreadsheet-based field processes that are often at the core of poor data quality.
“We are very pleased that the Mapcom team selected the mobile capabilities of the IQGeo Platform to be integrated within its product line,” explained Jay Cadman, General Manager for the Americas at IQGeo. “The partnership with Mapcom is an ideal match as they have an excellent reputation and strong customer base and our teams have similar business and technical philosophies. We look forward to supporting Mapcom as they roll out an enhanced mobile solution to their customers.”
“Enabling field teams with the right tools is an increasingly important priority for our industry,” said Collin Granger, CEO & President of Mapcom Systems. “We’re excited to offer our clients a proven mobile solution through IQGeo that will extend the value of their M4 data by making it more accessible and more accurate than ever.”
