Global Mainframe and MapFusion Announce Merger

  • Rating12345

PR – Steve Turcotte, CEO and Chairman of Calgary-based SaaS solutions
provider Global Mainframe, is proud to announce today the completion of
a merger with MapFusion. With this acquisition, the company will begin
to deploy critical geospatial mapping resources and immediately
maximize its recently showcased Energy Resource Manager™ targeting the
Oil and Gas industry.

“It’s taken a few months to get to know
each other since being introduced” explains Turcotte, “but we’re
extremely happy with the result. The people at MapFusion who have been
extensively testing GIS mapping functionality within the real estate
sector in fact provide us many new opportunities to explore and we’re
certainly better positioned to compete effectively with an enhanced ERM
module, and support an expanding portfolio of services.”

MoveWise,
a geospatial-enabled data aggregation and reporting tool, was developed
for relocation professionals exclusively, and augments CommunityWise, a
retail application online currently used by relocating consumers across
North America. “We believe we’ll quickly partner with a licensor to
sell MoveWise into a very lucrative market,” Turcotte continues. “Our
teams succeeded over the past few months to refine the product, and an
advanced version was showcased at the NRC show in San Antonio last
month.”

Located in Toronto, over the past year MapFusion’s
developers have been working closely with industry leaders and partners
to evolve relocation-specific product, integrating new and innovative
technology with data-driven maps to reduce the clients’ actual cost of
relocation, as well as the personal stress involved with moving the
employee and family members.

“As a data aggregator this merger
is a logical step for us,” concludes Turcotte. “We are aware that
MapFusion has been instrumental in developing proprietary and renowned
tracking software for the transportation industry and we intend to
leverage our complementary competencies to exploit opportunities in the
Oil and Gas sector right now.”
