Our Location Solutions support the generation and distribution of location information and provide state-of-the-art LBS applications.

Hosted in the Cloud or In-network LBS Solutions

For a hosted solution, TCS provides an industry-leading cloud-based solution for our LBS service. It is designed to minimize deployment timeline, costs, and resource requirements. As part of this solution offering, TCS provides project management, coordination, and testing support. The hosted cloud solution can be converted to an in-network solution at a later date, when it makes sense – administratively, financially, and technically – to do so.

The TCS end-to-end LBS in-network solution is integrated into the customers environment and is built in a modular, extensible manner, allowing vertical (capacity) expansion with no impact to existing services. Scalability is an important design criterion for our in-network Location Solution and it allows capacity expansion as a business grows.


Using innovative mobile cloud computing services, TCS continues to offer top revenue-producing applications for navigation, hyper-local search, asset tracking, and people locators.

TCS’ end-to-end approach and two decades of LBS experience can speed time to market, eliminate integration problems associated with launching new location services, and minimize implementation and ongoing maintenance costs.
