Nearmap and Carahsoft announce partnership
On May 18, Salt Lake City, UT-based Nearmap, an aerial imagery and location intelligence company, and Carahsoft Technology Corp. announced a partnership that will make it easier for government customers to obtain geospatial data.
Under the agreement, Carahsoft will serve as a distributor of Nearmap products to U.S. government customers, making Nearmap aerial imagery and geospatial data available to the public sector through Carahsoft’s network of reseller partners, NASA Solutions for Enterprise- Wide Procurement (SEWP) V, Information Technology Enterprise Solutions – Software 2 (ITES- SW2), National Cooperative Purchasing Alliance (NCPA), and OMNIA Partners contracts.
Through Carahsoft, government agencies in the U.S. will more easily and efficiently be able to purchase geospatial content and location data from leading location intelligence company Nearmap with access to preferred government customer pricing.
These contract vehicles will also provide U.S. federal government customers with streamlined access to some of the world’s most current, accurate and scalable location data and tools. Applications for this powerful location data include national security, military and civil asset management, infrastructure management, environmental studies, and natural disaster response, resilience response and recovery missions.
Executive Vice President and General Manager of North America at Nearmap Tony Agresta said, “Our successful track record with U.S. government agencies, including the Army National Guard, Federal Bureau of Investigation, and United States Army Corps of Engineers, drove our decision to pursue these contracts. The stamp of approval Nearmap has received validates our world-leading capabilities and cost-effective solutions. This ensures Nearmap can continue to deliver high-quality aerial imagery and location data to support the myriad of critical services that government agencies provide for their citizens.”
Nearmap is widely recognized as a top location intelligence provider for State and Local Government organizations wishing to improve their workflows and save taxpayer resources. Most notably, Nearmap technology and content is now used in 42 of the 50 U.S. states for a variety of use cases. The announcement of Nearmap’s new U.S. government distribution channels further demonstrates the growth and importance Nearmap places on supporting government agencies in the U.S.
“Nearmap’s offerings allow agencies to streamline workflows, make better informed decisions through reliable intelligence and strengthen their digital transformation strategy,” said Lacey Wean, director for geospatial solutions at Carahsoft. “We are pleased to leverage our expertise in the government realm and that of our reseller partners to include Nearmap’s solutions in our growing geospatial solutions portfolio and to make them available to the public sector.”
