Mapcom Announces Partnership with Magellan Professional

Mapcom Systems becomes reseller of Magellan Professional MobileMapper CX

December 1, 2009 – Richmond, VA – Mapcom Systems, developers of the M4 Solutions Software Suite, announced today their partnership with Magellan Professional. This union allows Mapcom Systems the opportunity to resell Magellan’s handheld GPS unit, the MobileMapper CX. As a reseller, Mapcom Systems can become the single point of focus for all their customers’ GPS needs.  

The ease of use of the MobileMapper CX reduces mapping time while facilitating the inclusion of accurate plant and miscellaneous field data. The effortlessness of the data capture process affords technicians the ability to gather and anticipate all field elements.  “The incorporation of the MobileMapper CX has cut the fielding and drawing time in half,” stated Brian Vance, Engineer for Armstrong Telephone Company. “The freedom of no longer having to draw everything on paper has allowed our company to become aware of items in the field that we would have not captured otherwise,” said Vance. 

The sub-meter accuracy and real-time correction of the MobileMapper CX eliminates the need for post-processing. After collection, data is immediately ready for inclusion in the M4 project or import.

Mapcom Systems’ partnership with Magellan Professional has anticipated all caveats of the data importation process.  The translation process could not be easier. Vance explained, “All I have to do is upload the field data and the map is practically complete. It is so simple that with very little training anyone can look like an expert”. 

“We are pleased to be a reseller of Magellan Professional field collection products and believe the integration of our M4 Solutions Suite with the MobileMapper CX represents a tremendous savings opportunity for our customers,” said Mapcom CEO John Granger in making the announcement.

Committed to being a “best of breed” solution, Mapcom Systems configures each MobileMapper CX with a custom data dictionary, ensuring that each client has a solution designed just for them. Rugged and waterproof, the durability of the MobileMapper CX can accommodate any field environment a technician or engineer might encounter.
