Facebook Is Using Pitney Bowes Software for Geocoding

Back on May 7th, during Pitney Bowes' (PB) quarterly conference call with financial analysts, CEO Murray Martin revealed a deal with Facebook for geocoding service:

We're pleased to note that at the end of the quarter, we signed a multi-year agreement with Facebook to offer global geocoding, reverse geocoding and other location intelligence applications and data for integration into Facebook's applications and services. Our best-of-breed technology will provide Facebook developers and ultimately their users high-performance, high-precision location processing across desktops, laptops, tablets and mobile platforms. This is a great example of the kinds of solutions we are developing to help our customers deliver more personalized, relevant communications to their customers.
