APPLICATION SOLUTIONS &
Cyantel to Deliver Remote
Workforce Management Solution Built On Leading MapInfo Mobile LBS
MapInfo, a developer of Location-Based Services
(LBS services), recently announced a global partnership with Irish-based LBS services company, Cyantel. Under the partnership Cyantel will create applications from its E-Z Manage range of LBS solution suites using the geo-spatial functionality from MapInfo's miAware mobile location services platform.
The first of these systems is Cyantel's E-Z Manage Resource Manager, an application solution for the management of remote workforces. The integrated solution, which will enable customers to locate and effectively deploy 'in the field' resources,
was demonstrated by MapInfo at 3GSM World Congress, Cannes, in
February, 2003. The solution provides network operators and their customers with a solution for
organizations needing to locate, communicate with, manage and report on their mobile work forces.
E-Z-Manage Resource Manager is designed to work with existing handsets. Combining this with the added dimension miAware brings in terms of geo-spatial functionality and data, the solution delivers a rich offering for quick and easy deployment. Companies deploying the system can immediately identify the location of their employees, and co-ordinate their collective activities in the field.
According to Larry Delaney, general manager MapInfo LBS business unit: "The integration of Cyantel's LBS applications with MapInfo miAware creates a valuable solution that operators can quickly bring to market. miAware is fast becoming the industry standard platform - upon which companies such as Cyantel are able to build beneficial business-oriented LBS solutions. The operator community is waiting for initiatives like this, whereby they can offer new services which bring real value to their customers."
Padraig Murphy, CEO Cyantel, says: "This partnership is a perfect step for Cyantel, in terms of our own business development, adding to the richness of our offerings, and for the development of the LBS industry as a whole. There is clearly a place for sophisticated and easy-to-use products in the business community which can be effectively deployed for the ever-growing mobile workforce."
Cyantel is engaged in the design, development and deployment of location-based services for mobile operators that are re-branded and sold by mobile operators to their customers. Cyantel
has developed 3 product suite of location-based services. The E-Z-Manage
is targeted at corporate and business customers. E-Z-Track is a range of consumer and prepaid location-based services, and E-Z-Mall is a wireless promotions solution enabling businesses to offer localized promotions to nearby consumers.
