Memphis, Tennessee, USA – American Roamer has announced the latest version of Global Coverage Analyzer (GCA), the company’s cloud-based interactive mapping application for viewing and comparing 2G, 3G and 4G mobile network coverage in more than 200 countries worldwide. This latest release from a leading global source for spatial network intelligence includes new features and expanded search capabilities that reportedly enable more efficient use of the application to increase productivity and strategic value for mobile industry decision makers.

With the proliferation of roaming hubs and group-level wholesale relationships, evaluating mobile coverage at an individual country level is not enough. GCA now includes an optional feature to view mobile network coverage in multiple countries simultaneously, enabling decision makers to make the best possible strategic and tactical business decisions.

The new release of the service also includes several value-added updates that allow users to expand searches by mobile network operator and leverage American Roamer’s global geocoder for specific location searches. This provides knowledge of mobile network availability at a specific location, which can be critical when supporting the needs of large enterprises and setting the best expectations for individual customers roaming abroad.

In addition, GCA now gives users the ability to print or save the map as an image to drop into corporate presentations or other internal documents. GCA also saves the user’s last session, recalling the session exactly as it was prior to logging out. This feature makes it easier for users to work from anywhere without any impact to their workflow.

“We deeply value customer feedback and have taken it into account over the past six months to build upon the existing functionality of GCA to support new features and make major improvements to the user experience,” said Chip Strange, Vice President of products and technology at American Roamer. “Customers appreciate the depth of information, accuracy and capabilities of GCA, and the value it brings when making key business decisions.”

GCA combines American Roamer’s catalogue of international mobile network coverage, interactive mapping capabilities and industry-leading market research, giving clients the ability to evaluate worldwide mobile network coverage within their web browser. The product supports the needs of an array of business segments, from mobile roaming and competitive intelligence, to strategic planning and business development.

“Unlike any other option available in the industry, Global Coverage Analyzer allows easy and tailored accessibility to American Roamer’s worldwide mobile coverage database, the largest and most accurate in the world – delivering a very important and powerful solution as the mobile market becomes more globally competitive and technologically diverse,“ said Bryan Darr, CEO of American Roamer (pictured above).

American Roamer helps clients acquire and retain customers, make sound business decisions and execute with a solid information base with comprehensive, interactive information about coverage patterns, spectrums, network configurations and licensing data. Headquartered in Memphis, Tennessee, American Roamer’s clients range from Fortune 100 companies to small rural businesses – all dependent upon the company’s 20+ years of experience serving as an unbiased information source for the mobile and network ecosystem.
