Riverside County Economic Development Selects GIS WebTech

Economic Development Leader Partners with Fastest-Growing Provider

Riverside County, one of the fastest-growing counties in California and a long-time economic development leader in the state, recently selected GIS WebTech as its new provider of online GIS technology. GIS WebTech’s Recruit is the only technology built natively on the Esri platform, providing customers access to the inventory of available buildings and land in Riverside County along with powerful data and mapping technology.

Riverside County chose GIS WebTech’s Recruit after conducting a rigorous RFP process. The County’s choice of GIS WebTech follows our recent selection by economic development organizations in Texas, Florida, Georgia, North Carolina, Indiana, South Carolina, Montana and Oklahoma — all in the last few months and all following side-by-side comparisons with legacy technologies.

GIS WebTech’s record growth has been driven, to a large degree, by economic developers seeking the latest in technology and innovation. In fact, so many economic development groups have switched to GIS WebTech that we have automated part of the process and made it simple for customers.

Said Rhonda Roberts, Development Specialist at Riverside County Economic Development, “Recruit really stood out by offering the best combination of advanced features and ease of use. For example, with Recruit we can integrate local data through the Esri platform with just a few clicks, allowing our team to emphasize Riverside County’s unique strengths.”

“We are excited to welcome the Riverside County Office of Economic Development to the growing GIS WebTech network,” said Ron Bertasi, CEO of GIS WebTech. “Our team looks forward to providing them the same great service that keeps our customer renewal rate the highest in the industry.”

Our entire team at GIS WebTech is excited to partner with the Riverside County Office of Economic Development!

2. The GIS app cannot provide trucking or walking analysis.

Many economic development organizations are focused on recruiting advanced manufacturing, industrial, distribution, and similar companies. And for good reason: these businesses create high paying jobs and provide a boost to the local tax base.

These companies all have something else in common: they require trucking to and from their facilities. So leading economic developers make sure their GIS technology provides trucking time and trucking distance tools. These tools reflect the differences between trucks and passenger cars in speed limits, bridge weight limits, and other factors. If you are using an app that does not provide trucking analysis you may be losing opportunities because of it.
