June 22nd, 2007, Mobile, AL – Today MapuSoft Technologies (MT) announced the receipt of the “Above and Beyond” award from the Employer Support of Guard and Reserve (ESGR) organization. By giving this award the ESGR recognizes MT’s above normal commitment to supporting the Guard and Reserve.

“MapuSoft recognizes the sacrifices made by those who serve our country in the Guard and Reserve.” said Raj Johnson, President and CEO of MapuSoft Technologies. “As such we are willing to provide as much accommodation as possible to our employees who are serving our country.”
