Appello, a global leading provider of location based services (LBS), announces today that it will be using OpenStreetMap (OSM) in its award winning mobile navigation application, Wisepilot. From today Appello’s customers will be able to download Wisepilot from their preferred app store of choice and benefit from the rich and detailed data available from OSM. Existing customers do not need to download a new application because, thanks to Appello’s cloud based LBS platform, the switch to OSM will happen over the air.
“The whole company is very excited about what we can offer our customers with OSM underpinning our products. OSM’s 1.2 million and growing contributors continue to produce daily updates to the map that will benefit our 44 million unique users. We also hope that our user base will also become an active contributor to the OSM community.” said Mats Winkler, CEO at Appello.
Appello offers an award winning portfolio of LBS applications to consumers globally as well as turn-key solutions to mobile operators, handset manufacturers, automotive OEM, and enterprise customers.
Appello’s global customer base includes but is not limited to Sony Mobile, Airtel, T-Mobile, TIM, A1, KPN, Mobily, du Telecom, Turkcell and TeliaSonera, reaching all together over 500 million end users. Appello now has over 44 million users in more than 100 countries worldwide.
