When our founder, Jason Elliott, launched our first solution several years ago our technology began to disrupt a market short on innovation and dominated by legacy software with frustrating user experiences. Our company began to grow quickly as economic development organizations looked beyond the legacy solutions to respond to business’ increasing demands for online access to high quality data in a simple, intuitive app. Our growth accelerated as EDOs across the industry began to hear about the incredible successes our customers were having -- 75% of our customers set records for capital investment and/or job creation in the year they adopt our technology.
This growth has been very rewarding, but improving and evolving our software solutions is a never-ending process and we continue to innovate as customer needs change. So how are we doing on innovation? CIO Review magazine recently named us to their list of the 20 Most Promising Solution Providers for 2017 – the only company selected from the economic development space. In fact, CIO Review believes we not only lead the economic development and real estate sectors, but rates us as one of the most exciting GIS companies across all sectors.

I am really proud of our team and want to thank them for their professionalism and dedication. Above all else, this recognition reflects their commitment to our customers’ success. We also thank our customers for sharing their daily challenges, opportunities, insights, and ideas. They work hard every day to improve their communities and we work hard to support them. It shows in the remarkable results our customers are achieving.
