Words from our client

Urban positions us to imagine the next 20 years of our evolving small town!

The City of Littleton, CO is in the midst of updating our regulatory framework (land use code and zoning) after an over 40 year hiatus. Bringing the vision of our newly adopted Comprehensive Plan into reality requires a very robust policy conversation and working with ViewPro has allowed us to employ the best solution to provide real-world context to making decisions for our suburban city. The professionalism and responsiveness of Suhag and his team to create context through a 3D model of our downtown using ArcGIS Urban positions us to discuss trade-offs and imagine the next 20 years of our evolving small town! It has been a great experience creating the model with ViewPro and now we look forward to highlighting the model for both our decision makers and community.

Available commercial properties for Sale and Lease is the foundational data required for any City or a Municipality to drive the economic development engine. ViewPro maintains ongoing working relationship with 3rd party vendors who creates and routinely updates the commercial real estate data at a national scale. ViewPro leverages their data and ensures its seamless implementation with GeoLocator.

Can the admin add their own Commercial Properties into the database?

Yes. GeoLocator has developed a proprietary tool that will allow the Administrator an ability to create their own commercial properties for Sale and Lease. The tool has the ability to share hierarchical user profile to real estate brokers and professionals who can add the listings while providing full editing access to the Administrator. This proprietary tool provides the city clients an option that requires no 3rd party subscription for commercial real estate data and regain full control of the local real estate listing data.

What is the ownership cost for GeoLocator?

ViewPro’s GIS products including V-Site are designed in a Software-As-a-Service (SAAS) configuration. This allows ViewPro to spread the cost of development across all of their city and local government partners. This results in significant savings and more standardized approach in how various GIS products are designed and offered.

With the support of a few dozen city clients, economic development corporations and agile SAAS platform, ViewPro is continuing to innovate and develop new product features without having to add additional cost burden to our current and future city clients.
