On the afternoon of November 8, 2017, Tencent Global Partner Conference was held in Chengdu. At the Creativity, Location, and Vehicle Alliance Forums, Tencent Location Services and HERE reached strategic cooperation. Tencent location service has thus ushered in a comprehensive upgrade of its products and services, and its international location service capabilities have been fully enhanced.
In recent years, as overseas travel, study, and work have become more and more normalized, users’ demand for overseas location services has increased. Use shared bikes in Singapore, enjoy all-Chinese grounding services in Phuket, and order meals in Japan with a beauty group... When you enjoy these services overseas, you are using location services to provide services such as location and retrieval The APP application fields such as travel, social networking, travel, and O2O continue to expand. However, due to the lack of overseas positioning support, the scope of use of these APPs is often restricted.
In view of the safety and risk of overseas map mapping, domestic developers with intention to go to the sea tend to cooperate with domestic location service companies to achieve seamless domestic and international handovers and avoid potential risks.
It is reported that after the strategic cooperation between Tencent Location Services and HERE Maps, it will rely on its own huge data ecosystem and professional solutions to integrate the two sides' superior technologies and resources and jointly develop overseas location services. The HERE map will open up overseas map data to Tencent location services, providing strong support for domestic developers in the sea.
Tencent is about to open up for developers to apply for international location service capabilities. Developers will enjoy one-stop access to global location services and achieve “one-time access and global access,” and “make location services everywhere.” ".
HERE Maps is the world's largest digital map provider, holds 80% of the market share of European and American car navigation maps, and its core business is to provide location services for automobiles, consumers and corporate customers through rich map data and a core location platform. With solutions, its map data covers about 200 countries and exceeds 46 million kilometers.
The combination of Tencent location service and HERE map will undoubtedly help more companies expand overseas markets and provide users with more convenient and efficient services.
