CARTO acquires Geographica to expand its professional services offering
We are pleased to announce that we have acquired one of our leading partners, Geographica
We are pleased to announce that we have acquired one of our leading partners Geographica. The team joins us with more than 12 years of experience in the geospatial consulting industry having already built successful solutions for joint clients such as Mastercard Vodafone and Telefonica.
Here at CARTO we strive to enable our customers to solve spatial problems with the best data and analysis. Part of that enablement promise means building a strong in-house professional services team to best support our clients. Combining forces with Geographica will not only strengthen our client offering but also our partner network.
According to industry analysts professional services account for approximately 50% of all business in geospatial with another 25% being software and 25% location data. However identifying cutting-edge customer-centric providers of such consulting services still remains a challenge.
Expertise in Spatial Modelling & Machine Learning
Geographica has a superb track record of delivering complex customization for enterprise clients with the CARTO platform especially around Spatial Modelling and Machine Learning. “A growing number of multinationals need these geospatial skills applied to their business problems yet there is only so much geospatial talent out there. Geographica have wowed our enterprise clients in the past by how they can apply Location Intelligence to different use cases - which is why this acquisition is so strategic for us ” said Luis Sanz our CEO.
In the coming weeks CARTO will roll out new services programs which will unveil new ways you can leverage CARTO technologies to solve even more complex spatial problems built atop of CARTO’s platform.
We’re thrilled to be working alongside Geographica’s co-founders Héctor García and Alberto Asuero and the entire Geographica team. Their dedication to superior customer service collaboration and willingness to take on challenges means they’ll fit right in. They’ll join CARTO from their headquarters in Seville Spain our newest office.
