MB International offers a wide range of products for business-critical geospatial analysis including socio-demographics and boundary data.  “When planning internationally, it’s vitally important to have comparable data variables and fixed, defined data structures and to work with a company which follows a similar strategy in this respect.  NAVTEQ Map coverage is continually expanding around the world and is a perfect fit for us,” commented Ray Roberts-York, managing director of MB International.  “We are already a powerful data house and, with this critical location content on our side, we can dominate this space.  Our customers are sure to welcome the addition of top quality content from a great brand.”

With a global customer base ranging from OEMs to resellers and end-users, MB International’s core focus is currently on the retail market which has been a forerunner in the utilisation of geomarketing data.  As a consumer driven sector, it is constantly in need of industry data for planning, consolidation or marketing – including customer targeting, sales optimisation, territory planning.  However, with more and more sectors experiencing economic pressure, they too are turning to spatial data for support.

“Geographic analysis in the retail industry requires the best possible location data to help improve decision making, increase efficiency and reduce costs.  The extensive data verification processes for the NAVTEQ Map make it the benchmark of accuracy for this industry,” added Peter Beaumont, Director Customer Marketing, Enterprise Europe, Nokia, Location & Commerce.  “MB International can now combine the precision of the NAVTEQ Map with its proven specialist data sets to produce market leading packages designed to enhance business performance.”
