Established as Kingswood Ltd in 1987, the company soon developed an enviable reputation for expertise in map related technologies. Increasingly customers have referred to us as “The MapMechanics” and now the company name reflects this acknowledged area of competence.
MapMechanics has established distributor and reseller relationships with companies across the world to ensure we are able to offer our customers the most appropriate solutions for each application together with consultancy, bespoke development, training and technical support as required.
After distributing MicroAnalytics products for many years, in 2010, MapMechanics acquired the TruckStops routing and scheduling solutions and the OptiSite territory management software from this American originator. We are now developing the product range in-house and have already delivered a number of enhancements to the user base.
In 2012 we launched our new e-commerce data web site which enables user to easily search through thousands of digital map data products to find the type of data they need for the specific part of the world covered by their project. www.allmapdata.com is designed for business customers, enabling them to compare products and save their notes against each option to share details with colleagues before either paying on-line purchase or using the purchase order facilities.
