Google Maps is the most world popular geoservice that uses a user-friendly and familiar to everybody interface to display a wide variety of geographic information. Google map service solutions possibilities, however, are not limited to finding the nearest coffee shop or watching traffic jams: the same intuitive technology became available to resolve complex geospatial issues at the enterprise level.

“Maps with up-to-date data, including those generated using satellite imagery is an vivid and powerful tool for spatial information management in a variety of businesses, from retailers to emergency response services, including banking services, insurance, real estate, transportation, communal services, tourism and many more. There is a myth saying that the advantages of satellite imagery are purely for big business; we want to demonstrate that this is not true”, — said Valery Barinberg, Director General of ScanEx RDC.

Analysis of business in its geographical context is the ability to make well-weighed decisions, to optimize resource management and to efficiently use spatial information throughout an organization and beyond, since all the Google Map services are available to computers, smart phones and tablet computers users from anywhere in the world.

«There are already such clients of Google Maps solutions for organizations abroad as, for example, the American Red Cross, DHL, Allianz, Airberlin, Intercontinental Hotel Group, etc. (list of notable clients is represented on the official website of the Google map service solutions). Potential buyers of such services can be, in fact, virtually any organization: from government agencies to retailers and taxi companies. The reason for this is not so much in the popularity of Google Maps as in the fact that every business sooner or later faces geographic problems, when they have to answer questions like “where should I open a new trading point?”, “where are my customers?”, “where is the courier who was supposed to deliver an extra-urgent order an hour ago?” and answer these questions quickly, on a daily basis and at the organization level,” — says Andrew Shumakov, ScanEx’s Global Markets Director.

For now the main potential customers in Russia are the companies engaged in transportation, including telematic systems, long and short-distance passenger-and freight traffic activities, delivery of different goods, including companies that develop their own commercial products and systems for monitoring of mobile objects.

“The main advantage of the Google solutions for such companies is the global coverage with detailed mapping and satellite data, a split-second calculation and optimization of routes, the current traffic situation overview, guarantee of a fail-free operation of services regardless of the use volumes, solutions flexibility, allowing you to incorporate them into any existing system, as well as the accessibility of solutions on any device with Internet access. But, of course, other companies, including those related to tourism, real estate, financial, advertising services are part of our target audience, “ — says Eugenia Yakovenko, Head of Google Liaison Department of ScanEx RDC.
