(“ProStar” or the “the Company”) (TSXV:MAPS) (FSE:5D00) a world leader in Precision Mapping Solutions® has achieved another major development milestone with the completion of the integration of Subsite Electronics Pipe & Cable locators into the Company’s flagship application, PointMan®, running on iOS. This allows for more expanded use of PointMan on iOS compliant devices.
“Our new flagship product Utiliguard 2 was seamlessly integrated with the PointMan application and consistently and accurately captured utility depth,” stated Christopher Thompson Subsite, Electronics Product Marketing Manager. “Pairing PointMan with our Utiliguard 2 expands the ability and ease of our clients to provide better data quality to increase productivity and at the same time reduce cable strikes.”
ProStar worked with Apple and Subsite to integrate the Utiliguard line of tools into PointMan on iOS. The PointMan integration means the PointMan app adheres to Apple UI guidelines for a more user-friendly interface and has passed Apple security reviews. The iOS integration supports ProStar’s sales and marketing strategy to further expand the Company’s distribution channels with integration of its software with the leading hardware manufacturers around the world. PointMan has proven to improve both customer user experience and the performance of the world’s leading equipment manufacturers of pipe and utility locate devices and GPS/GNSS receivers.
