Masternaut Three X signs Microsoft Virtual Earth telematics deal.

Masternaut : 11 March, 2008  (Company News)
Masternaut Three X signs a new three-year contract with Microsoft EMEA which covers the use of Microsoft's innovative online mapping platform, Virtual Earth, within Masternaut Three X's Internet based telematics service.
The deal is an extension to an ongoing relationship between the two organisations.

"This is a milestone for both Masternaut Three X and more importantly our growing customer base, which will expand to over 100,000 subscribers within the next three years" said Martin Port, Managing Director of Leeds based Masternaut Three X. "Virtual Earth provides a new dimension to our mapping and provides access to a wide spectrum of rich location information. By continually improving our offering, in this case with the provision of state of the art mapping and visualisation tools, our users will always benefit from the latest innovations in the market."

The latest release of the Microsoft Virtual Earth platform incorporates up-to-date traditional street mapping with aerial photography enhanced with bird's-eye view images and three-dimensional, photo-realistic views of buildings and landscapes. The platform also offers advanced location-based services including optimised driving directions, proximity queries and customisable map windows.

Masternaut enhances the platform with real-time traffic data, congestion and low emissions zone alerts, access to low bridge and narrow roads information, as well as many more features that provide business benefits.

"We are delighted that Masternaut Three X, a true European innovator, is continuing to count on Virtual Earth for its solution, which is at the forefront of fleet and customer relationship management convergence," said Jennifer Forsythe, Microsoft Virtual Earth Marketing and Partnership manager, EMEA and Asia-Pacific.

"Masternaut's fleet management solution demonstrates that the investments Microsoft has made in Virtual Earth - such as scalability, imagery and the development platform - are delivering practical benefits to companies," said Eric Jorgensen, GM of Mapping and Location Services, during the contract signing at Microsoft's US headquarters in Redmond, Washington.
