Launching a Strategic Service Provider platform, Geospatial Corporation has kicked off a national “go-to-market” initiative with proprietary new software and a model similar in many respects to the successful car service provider Uber.

Geospatial’s Strategic Service Provider (SSP) Program enables established service providers access to each of Geospatial’s data acquisition technologies, in addition to participation in the company's national and regionally targeted marketing and direct sales programs. As well, Geospatial will provide, as required, operational assistance, project management services, pre-sales assistance, training on our data acquisition technologies, as well as access to and training on GeoUnderground. Coupling the API with GeoUnderground provides a “geo-referenced” view of the SSPs market areas, and allows Geospatial to better organize and manage the relationships between the company and its SSPs online via GeoUnderground.

Geospatial’s SSP platform layered on GeoUnderground — the secure, mobile, enterprise strength, location-based infrastructure management system — provides a powerful technology platform, enabling the company to systematically establish operation centers in major cities, first across the U.S. and then globally.  Each operation center will provide Strategic Service Provider Partners access to Geospatial’s data acquisition technologies, national sales and marketing services, national branding and training, as well as access to GeoUnderground via the Software as a Service monthly subscription model. Engineers, contractors, GIS professionals and utility employees in the field, among others, can easily collaborate and securely share data with colleagues located anywhere in the world without the need for expensive hardware, software or trained development engineers.

“With well over 3 million miles of underground pipeline infrastructure yet  to be accurately mapped, Geospatial’s SSP program will seek to enlist a substantial portion of the 60,000-plus service companies currently collecting various types of infrastructure data," said Mark Smith, Geospatial's CEO. "Ideal candidates are existing surveyors, engineers, private utility locating companies, various pipeline inspection companies and a vast assortment of specialized channel partners.”

About Geospatial Corporation

Geospatial Corporation utilizes integrated technologies to determine the accurate location and position of underground pipelines, conduits and other underground infrastructure data, allowing the company to create accurate three-dimensional digital maps and models of underground infrastructure much like Navteq, Google and others have created digital maps of the world’s above-ground infrastructure. The company manages this critical infrastructure data on its Cloud-Based GIS Portal called GeoUnderground, a proprietary GIS platform custom designed around the Google Maps API and Google Maps Engine. Licensed users, for the first time, have available a suite of technologies allowing them to collect data and create highly accurate 3D maps and models of both above-ground and below-ground pipeline infrastructure, and view and share this valuable information in a secure manner with their peers and associates through a conventional browser via the Cloud.
