The location data and technology platform HERE technologies has secured the number one spot in industry analysis company Strategy Analytics’ Location Based Services benchmark report.
In its annual competitive assessment of global location platform market leaders, Strategy Analytics recognised HERE as the industry leader in automotive, industry growth vision, and openness. HERE also scored highly in map making and freshness, as well as making improvements in developer strategy and visualisation.
“HERE’s platform approach is beginning to pay dividends and is driving non-automotive growth across target sectors, for example, in transport and logistics, telecoms, media, and technology, among others,” explained Nitesh Patel, a Director at Strategy Analytics. “Forging partnerships, its open platform approach, and tech innovation remain key pillars of its strategy and forward looking vision, as location services and location intelligence become democratised beyond core use-cases in automotive, mobility services, on-demand and asset tracking. HERE also remains a leader in supplying automotive location services, supporting the sector’s evolution to electric powered automobiles and the revolution to increasingly safe, autonomous vehicles.”
Edzard Overbeek, CEO of HERE Technologies, commented that this is “A great validation for our platform strategy to address multiple markets as more customers, partners and developers recognise the value of location technology as a strategic investment into their business.”
