FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
New Global Outsourcing Management Services for Mapping & GIS Data Production
from East View Cartographic
MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. - November 16, 2005 - East View Cartographic (EVC)
today announced the addition of global outsourcing management services for mapping and GIS data production.
EVC is the leading provider of authoritative global mapping products and geospatial data and sees global
outsourcing management services as a natural extension of its business.
According to East View president and CEO Kent Lee, “Although we’ve been actively engaged in producing mapping
and GIS data products and managing outside contractors for years, increasing needs for geospatial data have
convinced us that it’s time to formalize this service as a distinct offering. Not all organizations are
comfortable or sufficiently experienced with the global outsourcing process. East View Cartographic is well
qualified to support these organizations on a consulting, project management, or prime contractor basis.”
EVC provides commercial and government organizations of any size with scalable solutions and immediate access
to a skilled workforce and leading edge technologies. Outsourcing benefits include increasing competitiveness
and efficiency by lowering project costs, distributing overall project risk, complementing internal capabilities,
and speeding project completion. EVC is committed to providing its customers with high-quality, cost-effective
East View Cartographic’s global mapping and GIS outsourcing management services are unique in the industry.
While most companies offering outsourcing services promote use of their own production facilities, EVC’s approach
is to apply its experience and knowledge of leading outsourcing vendors to serve as a broker in matching project
requirements with third party vendor strengths. “Outsourcing vendors have relative strengths and weaknesses and
must be carefully vetted,” added Lee. “We know the major players, what each company does well, and can help bring
the best combination of resources together for a given project.”
