Obtaining a quality GIS is an investment running into single and double digit lacs depending on factors such as level of capability desired, scale of operations and duration of license. In addition to procuring the license, one has to hire and maintain skilled manpower to run it to good effect. Governments, Utilities and Large Corporates make excellent use of the mapping technology and reap handsome benefits making the investment worthwhile.

However, small to mid-size commercial organizations in India tend to be risk averse and are often uncertain about investing in new technology. They do not have the need, or rather, do not foresee the need to convert raw data into geodata to get more actionable insights on a day-to-day basis. Moreover, businesses often have just a specific, non-recurring requirement for GIS. For such instances, just as one simply goes to a photo studio, pays a one time fee and gets the snaps done by a professional photographer who has a DSLR camera rather than purchasing a DSLR camera oneself, businesses too have the option to procure business intelligence reports from GIS specialists for specific purposes.

Mapmyops (Intelloc Mapping Services, Kolkata), in addition to being in the business of deploying the world's leading GIS platform, also provides GIS-based Business Intelligence reporting services to commercial organizations. This can be suitable for purposes such as Business Expansion, Market Study & Survey, Management Information System, Operations Visualization, and so on.

The output can take the form of a business report or even a dynamic web-application which can be refreshed with recent data for a day-to-day, updated view. This is a preferred method for those who want to explore GIS and its potential prior to making a decision regarding enterprise-level GIS deployment.

The cost of the one-time report-based solution varies from case to case. It depends on factors such as a) Magnitude of study b) Time and resources utilized for the study c) Cost of procuring reliable data and d) Capex and Opex budget of the organization. Overall, the cost of solution is significantly cheaper than procuring and operating a one-year professional GIS license.
