Staff at 39,000-home Orbit Group are benefitting from geographical data at their fingertips following the launch of the Geographic Information System (GIS) MyM@ps. Orbit, which manages homes across the Midlands, East and South East, has rolled out a web-based GIS system for its 1,300 staff to access geographic information, maps and analysis to support its business targets. Now all staff has access to the tool, which allows them to profile housing stock and customer demographics. Orbit has been using a GIS system since 2010 and recognised the potential for it to create further efficiency savings and provide strategic business insight. It has developed the system in partnership with Cadcorp to produce a web-based variant.
