HUNTSVILLE, Ala., Feb. 7, 2002 – IntelliWhereâ„-, a division of Intergraph Mapping and GIS Solutions, today announced IntelliWhere OnDemand, a new vector-based mapping software product for personal digital assistants (PDAs).
IntelliWhere OnDemand is an off-the-shelf solution that is ideal for organizations employing mobile workforces in government, transportation, utilities, and the military. With this new PDA software solution, a location-enabled mobile workforce benefits from wireless field access to data such as intelligent maps, diagrams, and asset information by connecting to a corporate geographic information system (GIS).
A crucial advantage of IntelliWhere OnDemand is its data independence and support for open industry standards. Enterprises with multiple GIS data formats can use IntelliWhere OnDemand for publishing to hand-held devices and accepting updates from the field without the significant time and costs associated with data translation. IntelliWhere OnDemand will begin shipping in April.
Lee Finniear, managing director of IntelliWhere, comments, “IntelliWhere OnDemand is built specifically for PDA devices with special priority given to mobile workforce requirements – ease of use, stability, and performance. As a result, IntelliWhere OnDemand is differentiated from competitive offerings because it provides reliable access and efficient use of GIS data where and when it is needed, and improves the cycle of capturing and updating data from the field.
“Our customers will appreciate the fact that IntelliWhere OnDemand is an affordable addition to their existing enterprise infrastructure while significantly enhancing mobile workforce performance and maximizing return on investment of their GIS resources.”
“IntelliWhere addresses the needs of Intergraph customer’s enterprise information systems and workforces,” said, Dave Sonnen, senior consultant for Spatial Information Management, IDC. “With the new IntelliWhere OnDemand product, companies will be able to extend their GIS processes into the field. We also see an interesting potential for IntelliWhere in the broad business information system market.”
