Integrated Mapping Services Becomes Tensing USA Business Partner

Germantown, Maryland, USA, 30 May 2006 -- Tensing USA today named Integrated Mapping Services Inc. (InMaps) of Holderness, N.H., as the newest Tensing Business Partner. As a Business Partner, InMaps is able to resell Tensing mobility products and integrate them with its own GIS and CAD applications to create custom mobile GIS solutions for gas and electric utility clients.

“The Tensing and InMaps mobile GIS products complement each other to provide unique solutions for our clients in the utility sector,” said Arjan Plomp, Tensing USA Managing Director. “We see many advantages to introducing our clients to InMaps products and having InMaps market our SPY line of mobility products to their customers.”

Richard St. Pierre, President of InMaps, said, “Our goal is to offer complete, proven technology solutions to our gas and electric utility customers, and we believe our business partnership with Tensing is an excellent way to accomplish this goal. InMaps sees the Tensing SPY suite as an ideal platform upon which to customize our Automated Driving Survey solution.”

InMaps developed its Automated Driving Survey (ADS) solution for GE Smallworld clients to automate record keeping related to gas detection surveys. These surveys are routinely conducted by natural gas utilities with specially equipped vehicles to detect indications of gas in underground pipelines. ADS uses GPS to track the progress of the surveys and create inspection reports within Smallworld or other systems, providing auditable data for utilities to use in demonstrating compliance.

Tensing recently introduced its SPY.NET suite of mobile products, the first mobile GIS solution that is 100 percent based on the Microsoft .NET Framework. This platform-independent suite will run on any Windows-driven device that utilizes the .NET Framework 2.0 or .NET Compact Framework 2.0. Tensing developed the SPY .NET suite, built on the core SPY technology already used by thousands of clients around the world, specifically for end users who do not need a full-blown GIS but require fast-performing field tools and hardware independence. The SPY .NET suite consists of Tensing SPY Mobile GIS, Tensing SPY Development Suite, Tensing Live Connect, and Tensing Gateway.
