The two firms' combined geospatial technology expertise is now available
to major companies in France and other European countries.
PARIS, France, Feb. 14, 2012 /CNW Telbec/ - Korem, a specialist in
geospatial technology development and integration, is setting up shop
in Paris as official reseller for Pitney Bowes Software (PBS) in
France. This move strengthens Korem's partnership with PBS, a global
leader in customer data, analytics, communication software and
services, who is an existing French reseller of Korem solutions.
Korem and PBS have been partners in Canada and the U.S. for over 15
years now. Their combined expertise, spanning a vast range of
professional services and geospatial technology solutions, will now
offer large French firms a combined offering previously unavailable
anywhere in Europe.
"Our companies are joining forces today, bringing together Korem's
geospatial and decision-making technology expertise with PBS's data
analysis know-how. We have a great offering for the French business
market, and particularly large organizations," commented Thierry
Teisseire, Regional Director, Southern Region and General Manager,
France for Pitney Bowes Software.
Newly available solutions that deliver tangible benefits
The Korem-PBS partnership gives European businesses powerful new tools
to boost the effectiveness of their marketing campaigns with
socio-demographic analysis, develop new markets, enhance customer
service quality, and optimize infrastructure planning management.
The partnership covers PBS MapInfo and Spectrum solutions as well as
PBS' geospatial data.
"Spatial analysis of geographic data is an aspect of strategy that
businesses can no longer afford to ignore. Our GIS and other location
intelligence products boost businesses' strategic planning capability
by integrating geographic, proximity, and risk factors—all to better
serve citizens and consumers. These services are the key to operational
effectiveness and a driver of growth," said Sébastien Vachon, president
and founder of Korem.
The services Korem offers with PBS are designed to meet the needs of
businesses in a number of verticals including banking and insurance,
telecommunications, distribution, and energy. Korem offers companies in
these fields its proven know-how in integrating operational systems and
data warehouses and providing training and support for its signature
development products and solutions tailored to businesses' needs.
"We want to add value to PBS's current offering in France by providing
professional implementation support for solutions tailored to our
clients' markets. It's a model that has worked for us in the past,
first in Québec, then in North America," Vachon added. "Today, we are
putting business development for Europe in the able hands of our
executive vice president, Jean-Sébastien Turcotte, who has over 15
years of experience in the field." Mr. Turcotte will work out of the
PBS offices in Levallois-Perret from the beginning in February.
