Arlington, VA (PRWEB) October 14, 2008
FortiusOne, a leading provider of next-generation location intelligence that bridges the powerful analysis of GIS with the open and intuitive GeoWeb, announced today that it has entered into a partnership with Carahsoft Technology Corp., a government-focused information technology provider.
Under this agreement, Carahsoft will serve as the master GSA schedule holder for FortiusOne's next-generation location intelligence technologies. The agreement gives Carahsoft's clients access to easy-to-use, browser-based tools enabling non-technical users to create cartographically accurate maps in order to better draw conclusions, make decisions and solve problems.
FortiusOne's GeoCommons delivers browser-based visual analytics through maps, enabling non-technical users to view multiple datasets, draw conclusions, make decisions and solve problems without traditional GIS overhead.
"By freeing GIS data and analysis, GeoCommons empowers a much broader audience to access and use what were once 'expert-only' tools," said Sean Gorman, CEO and founder of FortiusOne. "The incredible value of GIS analysis has been largely inaccessible due to the high cost and expertise required to implement and use traditional GIS products. With the help of Carahsoft, we can extend GeoCommons reach and provide lightweight GIS capabilities throughout entire organizations to enable non-technical users to solve problems through maps in just minutes - not hours."
"We are pleased to bring FortiusOne's streamlined GIS capabilities to the government--one of the largest creators and consumers of geospatial data in the world," said Craig P. Abod, Carahsoft president. "As an In-Q-Tel portfolio company, FortiusOne well complements our MetaCarta, TerraGo and Adapx product lines, and we look forward to leveraging our extensive expertise in marketing and selling emerging technologies to the public sector on their behalf."
Carahsoft's GSA listing for FortiusOne's products (GS-35F-0131R) was effective September 4, 2008. For more information, contact Carahsoft at 888-662-2724 or intelmarketing @ carahsoft.com.
