GIS WebTech Enters European Economic Development Market

Ron Bertasi

As regular readers of our blog know, GIS WebTech has grown rapidly over the last five years and is widely recognized as the GIS technology leader in economic development. Our Guru online site selection application, the latest and most advanced available, includes cutting-edge features creating major advantages for our clients in the competitive world of economic development, and we now serve economic development organizations of all sizes across the U.S. and Canada.

Our company’s growth and our clients’ success have not gone unnoticed by economic developers in other parts of the world. Over the last several years we have received an increasing number of inquiries from economic development groups outside of North America. Late last year we commissioned a study of economic development in a select set of countries and began discussions with trade offices and economic development groups in those countries.

We are very pleased to announce our first contract to provide technology outside of North America! Our first European client selected GIS WebTech for the same reasons our North American clients choose us: our unique combination of advanced, Esri-based technology; our extraordinary service; and our record of continuous innovation and technology leadership.

Bringing the benefits of our advanced technology to European economic development is an exciting step forward for our business. And as a dual citizen of the U.S. and the E.U. (Italy) I am really thrilled about it. My experience living and working in Europe several times made it clear to me that European economic developers would be interested in technology that can make them more effective.

Stay tuned for more details on our European business as it grows in the coming months!
