Austin, Texas – Surveying And Mapping, Inc. (SAM, Inc.) signed a Value Added Reseller (VAR) agreement with 3-GIS, LLC, an Esri-recognized developer of GIS software. This agreement allows SAM, Inc. to integrate 3-GIS's Express Solution software with SAM Inc.'s GIS capabilities to provide leading-edge GIS solutions.
The software, which runs on the ArcGIS platform from Esri, includes two main
components: 3-GIS Network Express (Nx) and 3-GIS Field Express Chameleon (Fx),
plus a synchronization engine that automatically synchronizes cached data.
The ability to integrate the software through this VAR will enhance SAM, Inc.'s
capabilities to provide implementation, data acquisition, migration, conversion
and hosting services. These services will compliment SAM, Inc.'s business which
includes airborne and mobile LiDAR, traditional surveying, subsurface utility
engineering (SUE), utility coordination and construction services. The
agreement will also allow the firm to offer an integrated, Esri-based GIS
solution to the electric and gas distribution, telecommunications, electric
transmission, oil and gas pipeline, and transportation industries.
The decision to become a software reseller was based on a number of factors,
including that the software provides robust functionality through configuration
without requiring custom programming; allows mobile users to capture, edit and
update data in an extremely efficient and cost effective manner; and is
functional on multiple mobile platforms, tablet computers and smartphone
devices using Windows Mobile, Android and iOS operating systems.
According to SAM, Inc. president Samir "Sam" G. Hanna, "We're
very excited about this new partnership and the enhancements it will bring to
our GIS capabilities."
