HitachiSoft Introduces GIS for Mobile
HitachiSoft has announced the launch of its “GeoMation Keitai” series, a GIS (Geographic Information System) product that will allow users to view and renew GIS-managed business data previously restricted to environments such as the office LAN from their mobile phones. “GeoMation Keitai” enables users not only to view business data from the field, but also renew it securely from their mobile phones. The software can be used with DoCoMo and au, and is compatible with other mobile phone applications.
Speed is constantly sought after in the business world, and the ability to access company data or other data that is necessary from outside the office has evident effects on business. Currently, staff outside the company can only work on data that they have sent from the PC to their PDA but this lacks flexibility because they cannot respond to on-site demands that require other data or send reports on the work they are doing back to the office.
“GeoMation Keitai” solves the business needs of these users through enabling them to view company data from outside, send on-the-spot reports back to the office and exchange accurate instructions with headquarters and outside staff without having to exit documentation or diagrams from the office. “GeoMation Keitai” allows business developments to take place quickly, and improves customer satisfaction.
“GeoMation” is presently used in the management of electricity, water and gas facilities using its map-based system. With “GeoMation Keitai”, HitachiSoft hopes to expand to provide support in sales and product transportation to its customers in areas such as disaster prevention, disaster measures, and insurance-finance-property transactions.
“GeoMation Keitai” is priced at 680,000 yen/month (including tax, 714,000 yen) per 100 users, and will be available from March 1st, 2007. HitachiSoft aims to achieve sales of 500 million yen annually with the “Geomation” series of products. Continue >>
