Winnipeg, Manitoba—Protegra has acquired Map It Out, one of Canada’s leading Geographic Information Systems (GIS) consulting and software development companies. Founded in Manitoba in 2003, Map It Out successfully utilizes GIS technology to assist government, utilities and natural resource organizations to track and manage their public assets.
“Map It Out’s expertise in GIS combines with our business performance consulting and software development to create an exciting blend of service. This joint offering will differentiate us in the market; we now offer a holistic approach to GIS solutions delivery”, said Wadood Ibrahim, CEO, Protegra.
“The problem with a typical GIS project is that change management is either ignored or is an afterthought. The tendency is for clients and organizations to overlook the business impact of the process and solution adoption, focusing mainly on the GIS technical solutions. Protegra addresses this issue by providing strategic planning, change management, and operational efficiency support, which are vital steps in a GIS implementation“, says David Enns, CEO, Map It Out Inc.
Protegra helps organizations in the private and public sectors identify and solve business performance challenges, offering management consulting services focused on operational efficiencies. For organizations that use information technology as a competitive advantage, Protegra offers software development and solutions. Unlike a typical consultative approach, Protegra promotes successful and sustainable change from within organizations.
Protegra is ranked as one of Canada’s Top 10 Best Workplaces, and was recently ranked #2 in Canada by the Great Places to Work institute.
