Find out why clients choose GIS Planning

  • As the first to market, GIS Planning invented the GIS/economic development space nearly 13 years ago.

  • GIS Planning has built a national, patent-protected site selection website, www.ZoomProspector.com.

  • Because our technology is widely used, site selectors and business decision-makers are familiar with our user-friendly application, and know how to navigate it.

  • GIS Planning is vertically integrated and does not outsource any element of our product, which means the end-user experience is seamless.

  • As part of our packages, we offer technical support for clients as well as professional website maintenance at a Class A server facility in Silicon Valley, connected through a CDN network of our own servers across the nation.

  • We provide much deeper and richer data and guarantee more functionality and power for the same price compared to any other offering.

  • Our products are built for economic developers by economic developers: 80% of our non-programming staff, including our CEO, have worked for economic development organizations.

  • Our client websites are constantly being upgraded to take advantage of the latest tools based on feedback from 250+ clients and thousands of end users. Because of our large client base, the cost of upgrades per client is built into our service offering.

  • We are currently offering EDOs integration into Facebook, and mobile versions of our applications that can be viewed on smartphones.
