Pitney Bowes, best known for its MapInfo GIS software, has increased its investment in South Australia by appointing staff in Adelaide to directly manage the location intelligence businesses in South Australia and the Northern Territory. This decision will help the company form a closer, more valuable relationship with users of MapInfo technology.

Since 2003, Tonkin Consulting had been a strategic partner of Pitney Bowes, providing GIS software, support and spatial consulting services to customers in these territories. Under a new arrangement brokered between both companies, Pitney Bowes will be directly responsible for sales, technical support and training service provision, while Tonkin Consulting will continue to provide specialised spatial and data consulting services to their customers.

“We are enthused by the decision to work directly with customers in South Australia and the Northern Territory. Some of the most progressive deployments of location intelligence come from these regions and we are keen to help get the word out to the broader MapInfo community on the good work being done here.” says Simon Bird, general manager, Australia and New Zealand, Pitney Bowes Software.

“I’d also like to personally thank the Tonkin Consulting team for providing great support to the MapInfo communities whilst being Strategic Partners of Pitney Bowes.”

Since the 6 May, the business in this region is now managed by David McDonald out of Adelaide. David has been directly involved in the provision of Location Intelligence solutions in Australia for close to 20 years.

This announcement reinforces Pitney Bowes’ commitment to the Australian spatial industry, as it follows news in March where the company became a National Bronze Sustaining Partner of the Surveying and Spatial Sciences Institute (SSSI).

Mr Bird reiterates, “We continue to affirm our commitment to the spatial industry – an area we have proudly played in for more than 25 years. Our partnership with SSSI and expansion across the country are examples of the investments we are making to support the spatial profession and our MapInfo customers.”
