MapmyIndia introduces new features and key partnerships
MapmyIndia has recently announced a plethora of new features and several critical partnerships in order to improve its services in a bid to stay ahead in the game.
Here's what MapmyIndia has to offer from now on.
MapmyIndia revamps itself, brings new features
New app and improved identification system
The location and navigation service provider has launched a new app called Map, which apart from offering accurate navigation, also integrates real-time tracking and reporting features.
The Map app comes with a unique feature called eLoc, in which users will be given a six-digit code and they can list their location in the system with that code instead of the full address.
Other announcements made by the company
Since only 4% of Indian population is fluent in English, MapmyIndia is trying to roll out regional languages in the app. English and Hindi have been incorporated and now it's working on adding as many Indian languages as possible.
MapmyIndia has joined hands with Reverie Language Technologies to break the language barrier for Indians and has acquired VidTeq, to develop the video-mapping system.
