Location-based mobile social network GyPSii and mobile mapping company Telmap have announced a partnership to jointly develop advanced location-based social networking for mobile networks.
As part of the deal, Telmap will use GyPSii's software to add social networking and user-generated content to its Telmap5 Mobile Location Companion. This includes integration with Facebook and Twitter, enabling users to share location-specific information – from videos and pictures to recommendations and geo-located blogs.
Oren Nissim, Telmap CEO, said "The Telmap-GyPSii enabled offering is fully supportive of people’s desire to explore their surroundings and interact with friends around them not only while at home, but also while on-the-go. GyPSii and Telmap share a vision to offer operators the ultimate location companion they need in order to maintain their subscriber’s loyalty through an excellent solution and a superior user experience, and we are sure that this new cooperation will open up additional opportunities for operators to achieve just that."
