Columbus Geographic Systems has announced that the US Agency for International Development has purchased its SmartView to meet their needs for advanced geographic information system capabilities.
US Agency for International Development (USAID) is the principal US agency extending assistance to countries recovering from disaster, trying to escape poverty, and engaging in democratic reforms. SmartView is powerful geographical data management software, designed for ease-of-use with maps in a wide range of formats and scales. The software enables users to quickly locate and map points of interest for further analysis, and easily integrates with database-layered maps and geographic elements. Columbus will supply the software as well as provide training to USAID personal to ensure successful implementation.
Tsvika Freidman, CEO of Columbus, said: We are very excited that such an important federal government agency as USAID has purchased our product. We know that USAID did extensive research on available products on the market, and finally selected SmartView because it offers an optimal geographic information system (GIS) solution. We hope to sell USAID additional solutions for managing coffee and vegetable growing. Following the successful implementation of our geographical data management tool in USAID, we look forward to expanding our sales to other federal agencies.
