March 01, 2011 - Dotted Eyes today announced how it is helping GIS and IT managers reduce the impact of local government spending cuts.
Mapping Infrastructure Support Online (Miso) provides the eagerly awaited solution that helps to combat heavy workloads, often the result of greater demand for GIS services and a reduction in resource.
With councils facing funding cuts of up to 40% and reorganisation throughout the public sector on a previously unseen scale, the demand for GIS services is growing rapidly; but in order to protect frontline services there is a need to find ways of reducing costs in the back office.
Miso is an online platform that delivers cost savings and efficiencies by automating repetitive, process-based back office GIS tasks. It comprises a customisable mixture of modules that use sophisticated technology to provide a diverse range of services to the in-house GIS or IT team. Each module ensures that consistent high quality is maintained whilst delivering ever increasing volumes of work, despite diminishing department sizes. A full portfolio of modules has been designed and will be delivered over the coming months. The first 2 have been landed, InfoShare and Data Optimiser.
Miso’s InfoShare module enables data owners to share their data with minimal management overload. Data is kept up to date by Dotted Eyes ensuring a fast, effective and simple transaction process that requires minimal training and can be accessible to a wide range of users. Transaction costs are reduced below that of retaining them in-house and accuracy is improved through its automation technology.
Utilising Dotted Eyes market leading styling, Data Optimiser eradicates the need for the data owners to continually review, process, improve, customise and restructure refreshes of their background data. It ensures that the data is styled and optimised in a consistent manner, making the maps familiar, easy to understand and accurate. Data Optimiser both reduces the workload required in maintaining the data and delivers continuity to the service that requires little input.
Miso offers a simple, easy to use solution to providing location based services in a cost effective way. This is increasingly important as the value of GIS becomes more widely recognised and has a central role to play in areas such as; planning, housing, transport, health and social care, to name just a few.
Miso is the next step forward in GIS management. The automation of the back end, repetitive low value tasks, provides a dramatic impetus to increasing both the value of output and efficiency of the hard pressed GIS & IT Teams.
More than 40 GIS and IT customers have already chosen Miso as their online solution and discovered that they save time and money over manually processing transactions in-house.
Sales Director Patrick Costello stated, “Local government departments are facing increasing pressure to reduce costs where sometimes staff numbers are already at a minimum. Miso provides a solution to this problem.”
“Miso is unique in its modular approach and has already provided many customers a better way of working. With new Miso modules soon to be released, Dotted Eyes is at the forefront of innovating location based services.”
