Blue Marble Geographics announces the BeyondGeo Re-Seller Program

Gardiner, Maine (USA)— BeyondGeo, the popular Internet-based mapping service from Blue Marble Geographics is now available to resellers through a private label program.

Two recent partners in the reseller program are – The Taurean Group of Belgium, WI and Business Management Systems Inc (BMSI) of Franconia, NH. BeyondGeo’s reseller program will allow them to private label BeyondGeo and deliver an Internet mapping service, with their own brand, to their clients in both private and public sectors.

BeyondGeo is a cost effective alternative to expensive in-house Internet Map Servers (IMS). Typical IMS projects can cost upwards of $100,000 and take months to deploy. BeyondGeo is competitively priced as an annual subscription service, with no hardware or software to purchase, making it extremely attractive to most GIS users and professionals. BeyondGeo is a hosted solution that allows organizations to quickly and easily publish GIS projects into their own website.

“We have seen the interest in Internet Mapping Solutions build a lot of momentum lately”, remarked Jeff Cole, president of Blue Marble Geographics. “The BeyondGeo reseller program gives engineering firms, GIS solution providers and consulting groups the ability to deliver their own Internet Mapping Service to their clients. BeyondGeo is an invaluable tool that allows resellers to augment and expand their current service offering ”
