AEM Takes a Leadership Role in Educating the Oil, Gas & Pipeline GIS industrySPRING, Texas, April 24, 2013 — (PRNewswire) —
SPRING, Texas, April 24, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- American Energy Mapping (AEM) announced today the launch of information meant to help better inform energy GIS professionals about why AEM is the obvious choice when it comes to obtaining energy GIS Data. "We felt it was time to finally let the cat out of the bag, so to speak," said Damien Wolff, President of AEM, "Too many GIS professionals fall prey to misinformation when it comes to choosing the right vendor."
The areas that AEM discusses are licensing, pricing, e-commerce, and the origin of data. "AEM allows the client to actually possess and own the data forever without the need for long, drawn-out annual licenses meant to keep them paying every single year," said Mr. Wolff, "This is where the industry's customers are getting raked over the coals and we at AEM refuse to do that to our clients." Mr. Wolff further goes on to explain that the pricing structure of spatial data, like pipelines and associated facilities, is based not on quality, accuracy or miles of pipeline. "Pricing in this industry is based on overhead of the vendor. If you choose a large company with high overhead you will simply pay more," says Mr. Wolff, "Where we at AEM keep our overhead under better control and pass the savings on to the client."
"We know that our clients have tight budgets and our prices are set so as to allow engineers, geologists, pipeline planners, right-of-way companies and other GIS related professionals to bypass the lengthy approval process for over-priced data and utilize their discretionary funds to quickly acquire the tools they to complete their projects.
Mr. Wolff points out that e-commerce helps the client save money by eliminating the need for expensive sales people, extended product demonstrations, and long drawn out contract negotiations. "With AEM, GIS professionals can simply visit our online store, choose area of interest (county, state, region or nationwide),the data they need, pay for it and receive the raw shape files," says Mr. Wolff, "We are the first company to do this and the fact that the other vendors are now following suit should be a clear indication that this is the wave of the future for data purchasing and AEM, as the industry's only identifiably small business, is proud to have taken the lead on this process."
Finally, AEM discusses the origin of data. "Everyone knows that no Pipeline GIS Data vendor, for example, actually dug the hole, laid the pipe, or shot the survey. None of us created the data from scratch. We all rely on third party public information," explains Mr. Wolff, "GIS customers come to us to get the type of data they could go find themselves but do not have the time to do so. That is where we come in. We provide a valuable convenience at a fair price."
"We felt it was time to let the industry know what we believe to be the truth when it comes to this type of information. No vendor holds a special secret formula or invention that makes the data worth the exorbitant pricing we see out there," Mr. Wolff points out, "and we felt that people should hear there is a better, faster, and more reasonably priced way to obtain the data than what they have been faced with over the years."
