5 Reasons To License Map APIs or Map Data Through a Reseller

July 17, 2018

Map APIs and DataApp developers and GIS specialists across a range of industries are tasked with keeping pace with a world that’s not static. They need easy access to map APIs and map data to ensure the fleet management, geocoding and geomarketing solutions they’re creating, and often relying upon, are always up to date.

It’s a considerable undertaking, but also one made easier by working with digital map data and services resellers that offer value-adds in the following key areas:

1. Responsiveness

Having the information and map files you need — when you need them — is non-negotiable. Resellers are highly aware of this need. Their well-trained staffs offer seamless service during every transaction, from phone calls through providing accurate map data and access to map APIs.

2. Data Accuracy/Reliability

Reputable resellers understand time is of the essence in providing map files, but don’t overlook data accuracy. In many cases, customers are given the option to download sample data to verify that the solution fits their needs. Fleet managers, for example, may need a clear understanding of how tracking, routing and route optimization mapping features benefit their operation. Having access to sample data helps them visualize its integration with their system and builds confidence in the reliability of the reseller.

3. Data Customization

Map data is rarely “one-size-fits-all.” In most instances, resellers can offer customization to fit specific situations and remove many restraints from problem solving. In turn, that leads to creative, custom solutions to challenges ranging from simple functionalities to complex calculations. 

4. Licensing Proficiency 

Resellers can help secure licensing for GIS, Intranet, Mobile Asset Management and Internet applications. Not only does this free up your time to focus on core mapping competencies, it also provides licensing versatility. Resellers can license data for internal applications, or for use by customers within larger frameworks, like fleet management.

5. Technical Support

Being able to find and license the appropriate map APIs and map data is only part of the equation. Where do you turn when you have technical questions or glitches? Resellers are committed to partnering with you provide excellent technical support, usually free of charge.
