Autodesk announced that JumpTap will utilize the Autodesk LocationLogic platform to offer location-based mobile search services to mobile operators in North America and throughout Europe.
The strategic alliance between the two companies grew from JumpTap’s involvement with the Autodesk Location Services Developer Program, where the two companies shared the vision, resources and support needed to harness the power of location-enabled mobile search.
JumpTap will use the Autodesk LocationLogic platform to offer real-time geoservices such as maps, driving directions and points of interest in order to address the need associated with a user’s mobile search results. The location awareness of JumpTap’s mobile search service is a true differentiator for mobile operators and a greatly enhanced experience for mobile users.
“JumpTap impressed us from the very beginning,” said Joe Astroth, Vice President of Autodesk Location Services. “JumpTap’s vision and approach to the local search business along with their technical innovations make them a compelling partner in the industry.”
“This partnership helps advance our goals of offering differentiated and comprehensive mobile search capabilities to our mobile operator partners,” said Adam Soroca, Vice President and General Manager of Search Services for JumpTap Inc. “Autodesk LocationLogic allows us to quickly and easily add location to JumpTap’s mobile search and advertising service.”
The Autodesk Location Services Developer Program empowers application developers with the same tools used by five world-class carriers to build and deploy location-smart wireless services. Developers participating in the Autodesk Location Services Developer Program are enabling their place in growth potential by receiving the most comprehensive set of tools as well as full-time, dedicated support personnel.
