Geographic Information System
A significant number of enterprises across the spectrum are burdened by multiple requirements — managing assets spread across geographies, tracking vehicles and field force that are constantly on the move, and satisfying extremely demanding consumers to top it all. Such demanding scenarios make managing a single component, let alone the entire workflow, a daunting task! However, with technology like the geographic information system (GIS), enterprises can optimize their fleet, provide field force with customer or asset information in real-time, and entice customers with offers based on their location. Well, the possibilities are endless.
We, at Infosys, understand the potential of this technology and the impact that it can deliver for organizations. We have worked with clients across technologies, geographies, and industry verticals — this is what helps us understand your business and the demands of your end customer. We also have in-house capabilities that are nurtured at our GIS Center of Excellence (CoE), which specializes in developing solutions and accelerators.
