Forbes India Covered: MapmyIndia Moves Towards Consumer Map Product

“A long-drawn battle for supremacy is underway in India’s online navigation space…….” states Manu Balachandran of Forbes India in his latest article:

MapmyIndia deeply entrenched in the B2B geo-spatial terrain till now, has consciously invaded the consumer online navigational space incubating plans & strategies for growing dominance over its rivals. Rakesh Verma, Chairman & Managing Director MapmyIndia, in his interview informs Forbes India. “We had said we want to ultimately go to the consumer and today our core strength is building the best quality maps with more focus on the consumers.” MapmyIndia has taken its maps directly to the consumer with the launch of its new app in February, with maps “better than whoever”. MapmyIndia caters over 80% of the B2B market of business in automobiles, and the future looks good with long-term contracts.

Knowing and accepting the tough completion ahead, MapmyIndia is focused on providing a “seamless experience” to each and every customer. MapmyIndia has built an accurate & comprehensive database of the Indian geospatial terrain that few companies can compete with. This includes detailed data collated on the socio-economic, demographic spread, and thousands of points of interest – all of which has been regularly updated through the years. “Focusing on technology, aggressive market reach, the revamped map app &  building business with tie-ups, MapmyIndia is geared up to take the industry challenge and provide more meaningful products and services for the businesses, government & consumers in particular.

“They certainly have the accuracy and a good product at hand” Gogia of Greyhound Research points out:  “What also works is that the company (MapmyIndia) has an Indian face. That’s a huge advantage with government projects as maps are sensitive entities.”

The MMI Team has worked hard and diligently, using limited resources, yet extremely innovative expertise and developed e-locations or eLoc in short. They have digitally mapped physical properties and addresses, converting each address into a unique, six-digit, alpha-numeric code. MapmyIndia has created a database of over 2 crore such properties across some 7,000 towns and 6 lakh villages in rural India.                                                                                “Unless somebody can physically map all this, it will be a big entry barrier,” informed Mr. Verma.

MapmyIndia is geared up for a strong marketing thrust and is confident. The products and services being “Made in India” and “Made for India”, with confidence that that Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s “Make in India” programme generates the expected and required growth:  “We aren’t getting a level-playing field here and if the government is serious about building big companies in India, it must ensure that.”

Forbes India reiterates the confidence radiated by Rakesh Verma when he smiles and says that “he will have the last laugh.”

Win or lose, MapmyIndia is here to stay.

You don’t build a business – you build people

Since inception, one of MapmyIndia’s founding principles has been to work in teams ‘to turn impossible to possible’. In this spirit, a senior leadership is sent every year to encourage cross-functional collaboration, and this year they went to Budapest, Vienna and Prague!

“Working for over 10 years at Mapmyindia, it is always refreshing to spend time with my co-workers” says MapmyIndia, COO, Sapna Ahuja. Bringing in the values and experiences, back from a company outing to the office definitely improves workplace environment, creates harmony among co-workers and build teamwork, generating a positive atmosphere for business growth. Soaking in the beautiful cities of Europe: Prague, Budapest and Vienna, the team explored and enjoyed every moment. It was a fun filled way of bringing together a diversity of perspectives that combine to make the team more productive and innovative. They learn to share their thoughts and improve their ability to analyse situations together and perform as a team.

Tata Tech Talks with Shivalik Prasad, Executive Director of MapmyIndia

“Our world is getting better using cutting edge maps and location technologies”. Maps and location technology have been part of our past, present and future, from ancient history of cartography maps for explorers and adventurers to being used today for automation and Robotics” Shivalik Prasad, Executive Director #mapmyindia gives an interesting talk at Tata Tech Talks

Shivalik Prasad, Executive Director, MapmyIndia

Shivalik talks about how technology is shaping everything focused on building a better future for India, especially through maps and location data innovation. Maps have come a long way and evolved as key component of technology. From ancient historic paper maps to digital maps to navigation maps, maps have became a way of life.

At MapmyIndia, we are trying to bridge the gap between physical and digital world. He gives insights to the new generation of subversive maps that are 3D, real time maps that have emerged. There are live maps with sensors giving real time data of the 360 degree panoramic real view, with live traffic data, probe data and essentially the big data. “We are augmenting this data for connected experience through sensors and host of IoT devices, he says”.
MapmyIndia focuses on the BIG data which is the core component and makes location as an important inclusion in the digital India stack. This includes high definition maps, Laser maps, point cloud, autonomous vehicles, machine learning, predictive analysis, navigation, and innovative technologies created at #mapmyindia to build disruptive solutions. Talking about next generation of solutions are ADAS maps i.e the Advance driving assistance. Taking the lead for ADAS maps, MapmyIndia is building road trajectory that will empower autonomous cars. The gears in engine would change automatically because the cars will have road information of its route. The creation of Indoor maps for malls and museums will help to walk through virtually or physically at 1 cm accuracy with panoramic maps. MapmyIndia is in the process of creating laser maps, already done for 75 cities in India and is continuously building these maps to create point cloud data. These are advanced video maps to be adopted by public and government bodies for planning, service delivery, governance, law enforcement that will improve development, safety and security of the country and the citizens.

India is a growing country and is leapfrogging into a generation of paperless layer. MapmyIndia’s digital eLoc address system is a six digit alpha numeric address system, the aadhaar of the Indian address system that will make location an integrated part of the India digital stack and become a part of the ecosystem that will make our life better. MapmyIndia is creating and stitching all the components of maps and location together and thereby creating the “Real view Digital twin”. India will be highly automated Robotic country, going digital in a big way and maps is a core component of digital economy going forward.
