Hexagon Partners with TomTom for CAD Map Data in Asia-Pacific Countries
Wednesday, April 13, 2016 | Comments

Hexagon Safety & Infrastructure will provide map and traffic data from TomTom as part of its public-safety solutions in the Asia-Pacific region. Through a licensing agreement, Hexagon will include TomTom Global Content's full mapping and traffic content with Hexagon's CAD software to help optimize emergency response performance in a dozen Asia-Pacific countries.

TomTom's global road network database integrates turn-by-turn directions and road data, including signage, intersections and congestions, in real time. Combining the CAD system with TomTom's data can help increase dispatching accuracy and reduce response times to incidents and emergencies in the countries served under the agreement, a Hexagon statement said.

"We look forward to leveraging our partnership with TomTom to benefit dispatchers and first responders and drive additional value within our public-safety solutions, raising both the performance and productivity of public-safety and security agencies throughout the Asia-Pacific region," said Mike Creevey, country manager, Australia, Hexagon Safety & Infrastructure.

As an official reseller of TomTom's content under the agreement, Hexagon can advertise, distribute and promote TomTom's map and traffic data, which is fully integrated into Hexagon’s Intergraph Computer Aided Dispatch (I/CAD) in Australia, Brunei, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Republic of Korea, Malaysia, New Zealand, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam.

"We are excited that Hexagon Safety & Infrastructure has selected TomTom to help provide real-time maps and traffic data for Hexagon's CAD software," said Phil Allen, TomTom general manager, licensing, Southeast Asia and Oceania. "We are confident that TomTom's content will contribute to improved response times during critical situations."
