Site Selection magazine and GIS Planning Inc. Announce Business Partnership
ATLANTA, October 1, 2009 - Site Selection magazine and GIS Planning, Inc. have joined forces to provide the elite readership of Site Selection magazine with direct access to GIS Planning's ZoomProspector.com searchable database of local communities across the nation on Site Selection's official data website DevelopmentAlliance.com.
Site Selection is a magazine focused on corporate real estate strategy and area economic development for CEO-level corporate real estate and site selection professionals responsible for making or influencing the expansion and relocation decisions of companies across the world. DevelopmentAlliance.com is a partnership of Conway Data Inc., publisher of Site Selection, the International Economic Development Council, the world's largest association of professional economic developers, and GIS Planning Inc., the leader in online business site location technology.
Readers of Site Selection magazine can now search the tens of thousands of communities and available properties on ZoomProspector.com directly from Site Selection's DevelopmentAlliance.com website. Users simply define the community and property characteristics that matter to them, and the embedded ZoomProspector.com tool uses its GIS mapping technology to pinpoint the optimal location for the business, taking into account labor force, business and geographic advantages such as proximity to infrastructure and transportation.
Users can fine-tune this search by type of commercial real estate, including office, industrial, warehouse, retail, vacant land, call center and flexible space. Once they find a property, users can then conduct in-depth analysis around that location to compare and match their needs to any community nationwide.
Site Selection readers on DevelopmentAlliance.com also have the option to search for a specific community, get a ranked list of communities based on sensitivity analysis, find similar communities, or find all of the communities nationwide that match their detailed search criteria.
"GIS Planning Inc.'s ZoomProspector.com service is the only truly national website that quickly identifies communities that meet the needs of businesses looking to expand or relocate," said Ron Starner, General Manager of Site Selection magazine. "Our readers have sophisticated site-selection needs and ZoomProspector.com is the perfect complement to our industry knowledge and expertise."
"GIS Planning Inc. is pleased to announce this new partnership with the Site Selection magazine. Site Selection is a media leader in corporate real estate site selection with a high caliber of readership, and we are proud to provide this unique service to Site Selection readers," said Anatalio Ubalde, Co-founder and Co-CEO of GIS Planning Inc. and ZoomProspector.com. "Site Selection expands the reach of our clients by increasingly their visibility in front of highly qualified business leads."
