PSMA was created to provide a single point of contact between government mapping agencies wishing to make their data available to the market and industry organisations seeking to use that data.
The value of PSMA’s products is in the richness of the data, which enables a broad range of innovations and applications.
However, this richness also translates to complexity that requires specialist skills and knowledge to provide business-ready solutions that deliver tangible benefits.
This is the reason why PSMA works with a value-added reseller and integrator network - our partners.
Our collaboration with a relatively small number of partners allows us share our data expertise with those organisations and enables them to multiply the impact our data has on the broader economy through their own distinctive commercial activities.
Who are our partners and what do they do
Over the years, as interest and use of geospatial data has moved from specialist industries to mass market, our partner profile has also evolved.
Our network includes traditional geospatial specialists and data engineers as well as software developers, marketing service providers, systems integrators and consultancies.
The products and pricing that our partners offer are as diverse as the companies themselves. However, our data is generally offered by our partners in one of the following ways:
- Raw data, as supplied by PSMA or with some further enhancements such as augmented data and alternative formats.
- Data embedded into an ‘off-the-shelf’ software solution such as valuation, geocoding or route optimisation tools.
- Tailored solution that starts with understanding the specific business need and developing and integrating a customised solution to match.
- Data as a web service.
When we are contacted by people interested in accessing our data, we will usually recommend one of our partners as they are specialists in manipulating our complex data content to deliver business solutions. However, if the organisation has a unique application of the data, we may explore the option of the organisation becoming a partner.
PSMA welcomes interest in partnering with us from all sectors. We work closely with all partners to ensure that they are well-positioned to take our data to market. Benefits to partners include training, technical and marketing support.
