KOC wins Special Achievement in Geographic Information Systems Award

KOC won the SAG Award for 2020 in recognition of its Unified Geospatial Platform, KOC MapsPortal.

The award was announced as part of the annual GIS User Conference.

ESRI, a company specialized in geographic systems based in California, offers the SAG Award once a year. The award is given after carefully studying newly developed geographic systems used by companies and institutions around the world, in order to choose the most successful from nearly 300,000 companies and institutions. 


The choice is made based on a set of technical standards that include the novelty of computer technologies and components used in the system, in addition to the quality and accuracy of implementation, the efficiency of the system, and the extent to which it meets the operational requirements of the organization as a whole.


As a step towards comprehensive digital transformation, KOC had launched a project to develop the KOC MapsPortal system, with the aim of updating its geographic information system using GIS Portal technology for integrated enterprise systems.
