Visionstate Leverages Google Maps for South Edmonton Common iPhone App

EDMONTON, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Oct. 27, 2011) - Finding stores, brands, and products within South Edmonton Common has been made significantly easier thanks to a major upgrade to Visionstate Inc.'s iPhone app for the popular power center located in Edmonton, Alberta.

To improve the app's wayfinding capabilities, Visionstate Inc., a division of CSM Systems Corp. (TSX VENTURE:CKX), leveraged Google maps with color coded overlays to make it that much simpler for shoppers to find what they are looking for in the 320 acre development.

"We are very pleased with the upgrades to the South Edmonton Common app as an information and navigational tool, and hope it will further enhance the shopping experience of patrons to the centre," said Tony Rota, Director of Marketing for Cameron Developments Corporation.

"The upgrades to the South Edmonton Common app are characterized by leveraging the power of Google Maps technology to make it easier for users to locate stores, and find their way there. Users are able to toggle a traffic overlay to see which roads are congested and can help them plan a little better to get to their destination as painlessly as possible," added David Hughes, Director of Technology for Visionstate Inc.

The iPhone app for South Edmonton Common has experienced thousands of downloads since its original launch in December 2010. Along with wayfinding the app also features a powerful search engine that enables shoppers to find restaurants, entertainment, products and brands throughout the development.

To further enhance wayfinding, Visionstate Inc. is now working with Cameron Development Corporation to install site-based wayfinding in key locations throughout the centre.

Visionstate is a leader in delivering interactive technology. Running on the Company's powerful content management system that is specifically designed for touchscreen applications, the software can be used in diverse settings, including recreation centers, schools, shopping centers, washrooms and food courts to name a few.
