Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) August 11, 2010
TerraGo Technologies®, a leading provider of geospatial collaboration software solutions, continued its success in key business areas in the first half of 2010, including achieving a 24 percent increase in total year-over-year revenue and adding $3 million in funding from investors. TerraGo also added new customers in and beyond its core U.S. government business, bolstered its government sales team, and made significant solution enhancements with new and upgraded geospatial collaboration products.
“Our growth in 2010 demonstrates the attention government and commercial organizations are giving to extending geospatial intelligence throughout their enterprises, and the key role TerraGo GeoPDF® solutions play in those efforts,” said Rick Cobb, president and CEO of TerraGo. “In addition to maintaining steady growth in new customers, we also completed a round of expansion funding with our existing investors and our newest strategic partner, HitachiSoft. This funding will help fuel our ability to rapidly deliver innovative solutions to customers around the world.”
With nearly 900 organizations now using TerraGo software to create GeoPDF maps and imagery, TerraGo is seeing growth beyond its core U.S. government business. The company added 29 new customers in the first half of the year, several of which were from the emergency management, utilities, and petroleum market sectors.
Demonstrating the key role of TerraGo solutions in emergency response, a number of TerraGo’s customers have been involved with deploying GeoPDF maps in support of the Gulf oil spill. For example, the U.S. Geological Survey announced it is using its Emergency Response Map Index Tool (ERMIT) to make GeoPDF maps available on DVDs to assist responders, including U.S. Coast Guard personnel and others, with planning, navigation, and field data collection.
TerraGo’s international business continues to expand, with the company adding new customers such as Eau de Paris, the public water utility agency of Paris; DEXIP of France; Omnilink in Australia; and the Korean Cadastral Survey Corporation in Seoul, Korea.
