Business System Development


COMPARE a GeoPortal solution and building from scratch!

Do you have business processes and services being supported by Excel templates or Access databases and forms?

Do you have old or legacy systems running in a completely different environment, requiring a different account log in, and/or that aren't integrated with your other solutions?

The inertia to upgrade to an integrated, secure solution is usually due to high cost and level of effort - however, we make business system development inexpensive and fast.

Improve your business processes and support information requirements through a custom system that leverages the GeoPortal's tools, security model, data, and, if needed, hosted infrastructure. Developing a system from scratch can be risky, time-consuming and expensive. Our approach eliminates the risk and cuts the time and cost because we use the security and reporting technologies aleady in place.

Geo-enabling Existing Systems

Municipal GeoPortal provides the basis for geo-enabling existing systems. Depending on the underlying technology of your system, “Map It” functionality can be added to your system’s reports and/or analysis screens. Click “Map It” in the report, and launch GeoViewer to see the referenced geographic feature or map location along with links to other systems and information.

GeoViewer can also be used to support data input and maintenance. If you need to capture geographic data (such as an electoral riding, property for sale, latitude/longitude, and so on), GeoViewer can be launched from within your system giving the user the ability to click on the appropriate location and capture that locational information - while updating the system.
