“The continued purchases of Tensing SPY technology by organizations around the world confirms that Tensing mobility GIS solutions have been adopted as international standards for utilities and local governments that need to seamlessly integrate their field activities with their enterprise geospatial systems,” said Arjan Plomp, Tensing USA’s Managing Director.
Tensing business partner We-do-IT, an Australian geospatial information technology services company specializing in enterprise application integration will handle implementations of the MainPower, Origin Energy and Blacktown City Council solutions.
MainPower and the City of Tshwane have purchased the Tensing SPYder Web GIS product, a low-cost solution that will enable the organizations to display, query and print GIS data over the Internet or intranet. MainPower is an electrical distribution utility serving 31,000 people in New Zealand. The City of Tshwane covers more than 2,300 square kilometers around Pretoria, South Africa, and includes 2.2 million people.
Tensing SPYder Web GIS is designed to address those departments or remote personnel not requiring corporate GIS seats but still needing to display, view, query and control GIS for their own purposes. SPYder Web GIS delivers the total solution for the geo-presentation of digital maps and access to existing corporate GIS applications for the thin-client environment, both internally and externally. With no limitation to hardware, GIS data can now be spatially and textually presented on desktop computers, laptops and personal digital assistants (PDAs).
Blacktown City Council, which governs the third most populous city in Australia, and Origin Energy, a supplier of natural gas, electricity and liquid petroleum gas to 2 million customers in Australia and New Zealand, have both purchased Tensing SPY Mobile GIS from the Tensing SPY.NET suite.
Tensing SPY Mobile GIS is a robust tool that allows field staff to review, analyze and change up-to-date data in the field. It extends GIS capabilities to crews in the field and gives them access to entire mapping systems on laptop, pen, tablet computers and PDAs. Data is provided to the crews by extracting data from any corporate GIS database via an extremely fast one-to-one conversion tool that simplifies the presentation of the data. Tensing SPY Mobile GIS allows the customer to define the same application regardless of hardware platform.
“Blacktown City is one of the fastest growing regions in Australia, and its City Council relies on accurate geospatial information to ensure that its infrastructure keeps pace with development,” said Plomp. “Our solution will help them collect information in the field and transfer it accurately to the enterprise system.”
