VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - Dec. 6, 2016) - Carl Data Solutions Inc. (CSE:CRL)(CSE:CRL.CN)(FRANKFURT:7C5)(OTC:CDTAF) ("Carl" or the "Company"), a developer of Big-Data-as-a-Service ("BDaaS")-based solutions for data integration, business intelligence, and the Industrial Internet-of-Things ("IIoT") applications, is pleased to announce that FlowWorks Inc. has released a new GIS search function making it easy for any user to search locations and assets saving time and improving operational efficiency. FlowWorks is continually refining their User Experience to create more approachable and intuitive tools that allow non-technical and business users to easily work with their data to extract business intelligence.

FlowWorks, a Carl subsidiary that specializes in monitoring and analyzing all forms of environmental data, wanted to save their customers from having to scour their GIS layers for the names of pipes, sensors, assets and locations. Now items can be searched on GIS layers directly from the application's Map View. With this new feature, any string of letters or numbers can be used to quickly find the GIS information needed. Any item in the search list can be clicked to instantly view its location on the map and fetch any accompanying information. An existing FlowWorks client with enable GIS layers can now search across all GIS layers from Map View by hovering a cursor over GIS maps. The required layers are selected, and then the Search bar below can be used to search across the layers.

Mike McDonald, Carl's VP of Engineering, commented, "FlowWorks prides itself on listening to their customers and providing the features and customization needed to make engineers jobs a little easier."

Not only will this feature and others to be added in the near future help engineers with their jobs, they will make the application more user-friendly allowing less technically trained customers to access this versatile tool's analytics and reporting functions. "We are excited to continue expanding our user base," commented Greg Johnston, Carl CEO. "By refining our UX and adding user-friendly features, we are making it easier than ever for government and industry to manage and monitor their infrastructure."
