Here Technologies and what3words have announced an expansion of the partnership that will enable businesses across the retail, mobility, e-commerce and automotive sectors to enable what3words location technology via their Here accounts.
Here and what3words first partnered in 2020 to offer automotive customers the next generation of precision in-car navigation and have since enabled the location tech in hundreds of thousands of vehicles on the road today. This latest agreement will bring this offering to customers across other verticals.
Clare Jones, chief commercial officer at what3words, commented, “Our partnership with Here has proven to be a major accelerant to our growth in the automotive industry. Integrations that would have taken years of development can now be done in months, and innovative updates can even be delivered over-the-air. The speed and ease offered by this partnership will enable what3words to leapfrog slow legacy processes that have held back innovation in other industries, and we’re incredibly excited by the opportunities this partnership presents.”
Remco Timmer, vice president of product and technology at Here Technologies, added, “what3words’s innovative technology creates another layer of precision in the way the world communicates location and we see so much potential in making what3words readily available for thousands of our customers around the world.”
