HERE has announced it has now joined the MuleSoft Technology Partner Program, with the location platform services firm releasing its Geocoder API specifications into the ecosystem.

Now available from MuleSoft's Anypoint Exchange marketplace, organisations are now able to quickly and easily integrate HERE Location Services into applications, data and solutions, the company said, enabling mapping and location capabilities at a global scale.

With HERE's Geocoder APIs, users can leverage high-precision conversion of real-world addresses into latitude/longitude coordinates - and vice versa - for mapping and special analysis.

They also enable processing of up to one million lines of address information for batch-process geocoding, while automatic completion and correction of misspellings allow for better suggestions when address searching.

"This collaboration will empower MuleSoft developers to create more engaging and contextual user experiences with a comprehensive set of location APIs that are continuously updated across 196 countries, and counting," said Mithun T. Dhar, HERE's head of developer relations. "MuleSoft customers can achieve greater competitive advantage across a range of industries and applications, including tracking and logistics, ecommerce and location-based marketing, among many others.

"As the partnership continues to evolve, we will bring the full power of location intelligence to the MuleSoft ecosystem with HERE's enterprise-grade, SLA-backed location services, such as maps, routing, POIs, positioning, traffic and weather."

The MuleSoft Technology Partner Program brings together various leading software organisations across both functional applications like CRM, marketing automation, HCM and financial systems, as well as across industries such as financial services, healthcare, retail and government sectors.

The firm's Anypoint Platform helps businesses reduce deployment time, improve customer experiences and drive innovation - as well as enabling the connection of apps, data and devices through API connectivity.

"This partnership and HERE Technologies' release of MuleSoft Certified connector will enable our mutual customers to gain competitive advantage by launching new applications faster, reducing deployment times and eliminating time spent on complicated integration projects," commented Brian Miller, senior vice president of Business Development at MuleSoft.

"Technology partner integrations with MuleSoft's Anypoint Platform and the resulting application network simplify connectivity and eliminate silos of data within both small and large organizations."
