Woking, Surrey 8th March 2012 – Gazetteer specialists Aligned Assets have announced the dates for its annual user groups.
The Symphony User Group, which is for local authority customers, is to be held in Bolton on 18th April 2012. Attendees will have an opportunity to look at all the latest advances to the Symphony range of gazetteer products and actively participate in deciding on future development priorities.
There will also be presentations on promoting gazetteer usage within a local authority, attaining gold standard and a special look at AddressBase Premium and how it can be used to save money and increase efficiency.
In addition to the Symphony User Group, 2012 will see the inaugural meeting of the Bluelight User Group, which has been set up to cater for the increasing numbers of emergency services adopting Aligned Assets’ corporate gazetteer system.
To be held in central Birmingham on 25th April 2012, the Bluelight User Group will be looking at the use of corporate gazetteers and different methods of integrating data into frontline and back office systems. There will be an update on AddressBase Premium from the Ordnance Survey, plus an insight into the business names database that is available for use in mobilising, fire safety and risk intelligence.
“Our user groups perform an essential function in informing us as a company of precisely what our customers want,” explained Andy Hird, managing director of Aligned Assets. “No one knows better than the end user about what is needed, so ultimately it’s those users who decide what we do and how we do it.”
