Exprodat Supports Small Charity Big Achiever, Map Action

Oct 10, 2014 -- Exprodat, the oil and gas GIS services, software and training supplier, understands that providing an environment where the best industry talent wants to work takes more than just concentrating on what happens during the working day. Staff will have outside interests and commitments that are important to them and of benefit to others.

A perfect example of this is when Exprodat staff volunteer to work in some of the most dangerous and volatile regions in the world for the charity, MapAction.

Since their first deployment in 2004 following the Indian tsunami, volunteers have travelled at a moment’s notice to disasters sites all over the globe and worked to provide crucial information to emergency services and aid agencies.

As their name suggests, MapAction collates and delivers all available information in map form. This unique service provides a common operational picture that can be shared with everyone who needs information, it aids decision making and will provide a platform for managing and monitoring operations.

This remarkable work was recognised at the recent 10th Annual Third Sector Awards, where MapAction was awarded a Commendation in the Small Charity, Big Achiever category. These awards are designed to be a showcase for the talent, innovation and success of the not-for-profit organisations that do so much valuable work and MapAction’s success was a just reward for their efforts over the years.

Commenting on why Exprodat believes that releasing staff to work on MapAction projects is important to the company, Sales Director Jules Cullen remarked; “MapAction volunteers take managed risk, pursue innovation and rely on their passion to provide solutions in order to succeed; similar to the behaviours we encourage in our people here at Exprodat. Releasing staff that can leverage their skills and understanding of real-time situational awareness in support of others, who are in need of help, is a privilege and we are very proud of their achievements.”
