RICHMOND HILL, ONTARIO, CANADA – January 18, 2007 – Orion Technology Inc. announced today that it is forming a partnership with Swift LG. Swift LG will distribute Orion’s out-of-the-box web-GIS software suite, OnPoint, to the Public Sector, Utilities and Energy markets in the United Kingdom.
Swift LG is a long-standing supplier of Geospatial Solutions, Land and Property Administration software and Local and Central Government applications. The company has a proven track record in Geospatial integration with particular expertise in Land and Property applications. Swift’s Consultancy division provides guidance on strategy and practical "hands on" services to major organisations looking to capitalise on existing investments in Geospatial technologies.
“The Utilities and Land Administration sectors have been enthusiastic adopters of web-GIS in the international market,” comments Faizal Hasham, Director of Sales and Marketing for Orion. “We believe that our experience will augment Swift LG’s own initiatives in the emerging market for web mapping in the UK.”
“Swift LG is an established provider of desktop Geospatial solutions to major organisations,” says Brian Kliner, Head of Swift LG’s Geospatial Division. “We are currently expanding our services to provide enterprise wide web-application solutions and Orion’s OnPoint fills a natural space in our strategic future plans for GIS solutions in our chosen markets.” Brian added, “Achieving spatial data integration is one challenge, making that data easily accessible in one user environment without custom software development is quite another. That is where we believe that Orion’s OnPoint Web-GIS has the edge.”
“An OnPoint solution, working in tandem with ESRI’s ArcIMS and ArcGIS Server, gives organisations the power to give their staff and authorised external users an integrated, single point of access to their spatial and non-spatial data. Staff can find relevant street or customer information quickly; generate customized maps, and incorporate maps in their reports. Multi-level joining across multiple data sources and real time data sharing means that keeping external agencies’ as well as your own field or office based staff in the loop is actually achievable. That takes most organisations a considerable step further towards “joined up” working and could even offer them an additional revenue stream as a spatial data provider”, concludes Kliner.
