Managed Services

A managed service approach is an ideal way for organisations to reduce their GIS operational costs by transferring the responsibilities to thinkWhere. Our Managed Services allow your business to achieve its GIS objectives without adding staff or other costs to your organisation.

Managed services give you access to our pool of specialist staff, saving you from training or recruiting your own staff and drawing on a breadth and depth of GIS technical skills that you would not find in one individual.

A Managed Service provides greater control of service levels and performance and with service level agreements in place you can be sure of continuity of service.

We offer two standard managed service packages outlined below. We would also be very happy to discuss your specific requirements and provide you with a tailored managed service that fully meets your needs.

Data Managed Services

If you need to regularly source, maintain and update GIS datasets from third parties, why not let us do it for you. We manage and maintain a national datastore of all Ordnance Survey digital map products as well as a comprehensive range of publicly available third party data from organisations such as Natural England, English Heritage, Historic Scotland, Scottish Natural Heritage, British Geological Survey and the Forestry Commission amongst many others.

With our data managed services we will agree a data management plan, schedule and service levels and provide you with an efficient, trouble free approach to ensuring your GIS data is always up to date. While we focus on maintaining the data, you can focus on using the data to make better business decisions.

  • Access to Location Centre online GIS;
  • Location Centre maintenance and support;

What Our Clients Say...

"I really like the fact that the thinkWhere team is made up of GIS professionals rather than just people who answer and log a phone call. It means that they’re able to immediately provide expert advice and they truly understand the importance of dealing with issues promptly and effectively!"
