Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) July 15, 2011
CitySourced, a location based mobile reporting platform and leader in mobile civic engagement, announced today that it has completed the implementation of Esris smartphone SDK (software development kit) in their iPhone, Android and Windows Phone 7 platforms. The SDKs will enable CitySourced to continue to deliver best of breed solutions to their many municipal and institutional customers. These SDKs, and the powerful mapping tools they expose, ultimately enable CitySourced customers to leverage their existing GIS assets such as authoritative base maps and authoritative data sets directly in the smartphone applications.
Our partnership with Esri allows us to deliver an enterprise solution to our customers that demand the very best in software. By implementing the various smartphone SDKs, were able to offer our customers features that radically differentiate us from our competition. Its these features that allow us to deliver a truly end-to-end solution between our customers (the cities and counties) and their customers, the residents and citizens that live and visit there, said Jason Kiesel, Founder & CEO of CitySourced. The expertise that Esri brings to the table in regard to GIS is astonishing. They are truly pioneers in the space, and were constantly impressed with their innovation. Were very excited about the integration and well see the return on investment immediately.
