eSpatial Poised to Benefit as MapPoint Deadline Looms

DUBLIN, November 11, 2014 — (PRNewswire) —


eSpatial has said that it has experienced a substantial upsurge in queries about its online mapping software as the discontinuation date for MapPoint approaches. 

Microsoft announced in July that it would discontinue MapPoint from 31st of December 2014 - although it will continue to provide support for the product until at least July 2015.

eSpatial was quick off the mark when Microsoft made the July announcement, publishing a blog on the same day, positioning itself as an alternative to MapPoint. That post and a recent update appear to have given eSpatial a jump on the competition.

Philip O'Doherty, CEO with eSpatial, says that interest in his company's software as an alternative to MapPoint - especially from business users - has been increasing at an exponential rate.

"We're just under two months away from the discontinuation date and the number of MapPoint users contacting us, then trialing our software, has been extraordinary."

"eSpatial had already distinguished itself as an alternative to MapPoint for Mac users, since MapPoint was never available on that platform. Now other MapPoint users are discovering the benefits of online mapping, such as always-up-to-date maps."

"Web-based accessibility, which enables our software to work across platforms, is one of eSpatial's strongest selling points - as well as our unrivalled support."

O'Doherty believes that eSpatial mapping software will be even more attractive to existing MapPoint business users after a free software update in early December.

The update will add a range of new features to eSpatial, including Optimized Routing, additional Heat Map capabilities, expanded team collaboration options and the ability to create customized boundaries.
