ZoomProspector has become an essential tool for the team behind Invest in Murcia. We use it not only to offer a state-of-the-art site location service but also to broaden our territorial economic development planning and promotion.

Invest in Murcia has integrated several of GIS Planning’s online GIS data tools into our website so we can now offer a more integrated service experience to the companies evaluating a location within our region. It’s been a really positive experience. We use it not only to offer a state-of-the-art site location service but also to broaden our territorial economic development planning and promotion for a variety of projects and initiatives.
We'd been following GIS Planning’s activities in North America for some time, as we strongly believe these interactive online data tools are the future of the industry. From the moment GIS Planning expanded into Europe, we sought to incorporate this service for Invest in Murcia; we are pleased to say all the efforts have been well worth it. Incorporating ZoomProspector into our strategy has positioned us at the forefront of the most technologically advanced IPAs in Europe.
At Invest in Murcia, we work on an average of 40 to 60 projects every year. After our first full year of experience with ZoomProspector, we can already say that it has made a measurable difference in the service we provide to our customers in terms of ease of use, reliability, and access to territorial information. Our GIS Planning data tools have made us the most responsive investment promotion agency of all our competitors. We have many success stories to choose from but perhaps the one that comes most readily to mind is having a company like PepsiCo selecting the Region of Murcia for their project in Spain.
It takes no more than a few minutes using ZoomProspector to see that this is the future of the industry. We, at Invest in Murcia, knew this would be the case even before they set foot in Europe, and being the first Spanish IPA and only the fourth in Europe to incorporate
The people behind GIS Planning are just amazing. As Invest in Murcia was the first Spanish version of ZoomProspector, we had many things to supervise and arrange. All the English metrics and references had to be translated to Spanish, so it was a lot of work, with a lot of text and features to convert. The team at GIS Planning was always helpful, understanding, and reliable. It continues to be a pleasure for us to work with such a good team.
