Mapcom Systems Announces Release of M4(R) Solutions v7.0 Geographical Operations System (GOS) Software

Mapcom Systems Announces Release of M4(R) Solutions v7.0 Geographical Operations System (GOS) Software

RICHMOND, Va., Aug. 7 /PRNewswire/ -- Mapcom Systems announced today the release of M4(R) Solutions v7.0, the latest release of its Windows-based Geographical Operations System (GOS) software for telecommunications companies. Retaining all of the functionality of previous releases, the release is the foundation product for three new modules: M4(R) Long Haul Fiber to complement the comprehensive fiber suite, M4(R) CPR, and M4(R) Dispatch Manager, which manages the service order and trouble ticket cycle from creation to close.

New enhancements made to existing functionality include additions to M4's fiber functionality, including an enhanced template builder and increased fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) tools, as well as laptop synching capabilities, and new security features.

Since its creation, M4(R) Solutions has evolved from an engineering mapping tool into an organization-wide geographical operations system that is easily integrated with any open database and most billing, accounting, network management and customer service applications. The company coined the term "Geographical Operations System" to represent its marriage of "GIS" (Geographical Information System) technology with "OSS" (Operational Support System) back office functionality.

"We are extremely excited about this new release because it expands usage of M4 into new telecommunications markets, into new areas of the telecommunications organization, and reinforces our dedication to making the tasks of all employees easier to manage," says John Granger, President and CEO of Mapcom Systems. "Mapcom was really the first company of its kind to actively encourage 'best of breed' integration, allowing companies to continue utilizing their existing data and applications, and it has paid off for our customers. Integration with M4 is reducing our customers' operational costs significantly while enabling them to better compete in today's competitive telecommunications world."
