Pitney Bowes

You probably know Pitney Bowes as the provider of MapInfo. What you might not know is that they expanded their technology and data offerings. They unarguably offer the best worldwide geocoder, but they also have one of the first 64 bit Desktop GIS. I highly recommend checking out MapInfo Pro. It is easy-to-use, not credit bound and gives you control of data access. But that is not the only solution they offer. I recommend stopping by their event at the Rustic Root and discover their integrated Location Intelligence solutions, open APIs, big data technology, MapInfo Pro, as well as try a few specialty GIS drinks and chat about geography while enjoying a beautiful view from the rooftop! 

The Pitney Bowes party is at the Rustic Root on Tuesday, July 10 from 7:30 pm – 9 pm. Come by Register here to ensure your ticket.
