San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) February 9, 2009
The age old axiom of "location, location, location" is dead wrong. That's according to ZoomProspector (http://www.ZoomProspector.com), which proves that the successful formula for business location is actually Geography + Property Type + Community + Online Search. Professional corporate property selection experts already apply this formula to analyze and select commercial property, and 97% use internet sources of information to develop a short-list of possible business locations . However, very few businesses ever use any analysis whatsoever, instead relying on misconceptions and on commercial realtors to make what is for many businesses the most important decision their business will ever face. Using ZoomProspector on the other hand, businesses can now deeply analyze locations nationwide, incorporating geographic information, types and sizes of property, in-depth community demographics and infrastructure data through an interactive online search and display.
"People come to me all the time with stories of how their businesses failed because they hastily choose the wrong location," says Anatalio Ubalde, co-CEO and co-founder of ZoomProspector. "It's not just about the business location - it's about what surrounds the location. We developed ZoomProspector.com to help the 750,000 new and expanding US businesses each year that need a business location to quickly identify the best locations, based solely on the criteria which is important to them through a nationwide online search. Until we launched ZoomProspector.com, businesses didn't have access to the deep level of data and analysis that we've made available through the service, including city and county demographics."
ZoomProspector's online map-based search greatly simplifies and speeds up the corporate site selection process, freeing companies to be able to quickly and accurately make informed decisions based on numerous data sets including demographics, business, transportation, and property information unavailable in any other single website. Not only does ZoomProspector provide this data for free, but the website allows visitors to search for this data through an online mapping interface that pinpoints communities with these characteristics nationwide. The wide array of demographic variables such as household expenditure, age, education attainment, type of workforce and even proximity to airports and infrastructure can help a business owners determine where to best locate their business. Additionally, ZoomProspector has a nationwide searchable commercial property database and analysis tool, that allows visitors to use all of this rich data to not only pinpoint the correct community to set up shop in, but to actually find the right property for their business as well.
So for businesses looking to locate themselves in communities that foster innovation, ZoomProspector can show the way.
