One of the most powerful features of ZoomProspector Enterprise: Commerce Edition allows website visitors to quickly analyze information around any location, allowing website visitors a clear picture of the surrounding businesses and other points of interest.

GIS Planning, Inc., the world leader in online solutions for economic development, launched ZoomProspector Enterprise: Commerce Edition today at the American Chamber of Commerce Executives (ACCE) Convention 2008. ZoomProspector Enterprise: Commerce Edition assists economic development organizations and chambers of commerce to promote local businesses, points of interest, and special events. The growing need to quickly and easily show points of interest on an online map led GIS Planning, Inc. to develop this industry-first product so that economic development organizations, chambers of commerce, utilities, and other public and private businesses and organizations can provide a powerful, dynamic and interactive online solution for people and businesses interested in their communities.

ZoomProspector Enterprise: Commerce Edition allows website visitors to search for businesses by business category, name and distance. All search results show pinpointed locations of businesses and other points of interest, as well as descriptions and pictures of the location. The software-as-a-service (SaaS) hosted solution displays all results on a completely interactive online mapping interface, with geographic information system (GIS) layer control, which allows website visitors to display additional layers of information on a map. For every point of interest, business or special event pinpointed on ZoomProspector Enterprise: Commerce Edition's online map, website visitors can zoom in and out to see the surrounding area, and can even generate driving directions from any point in North America.

According to Anatalio Ubalde, co-founder and CEO of GIS Planning, Inc, "One of the most powerful features of ZoomProspector Enterprise: Commerce Edition allows website visitors to quickly analyze information around any location, allowing website visitors a clear picture of the surrounding businesses and other points of interest."

For chambers of commerce, ZoomProspector Enterprise: Commerce Edition provides chambers a dynamic way to map both current and potential members. Businesses are color-coded by industry, providing both chambers and members a clear sense of a community's business synergies and competition. This is a valuable tool for local businesses to identify geographic opportunities to grow their companies in underserved areas or to partner with nearby businesses.

In addition to finding and analyzing potential new members, Pablo Monzon, co-founder and President of GIS Planning, Inc. says that "By showcasing their community, chambers are offering a cutting-edge way to attract new businesses and potential members to locate into their area."

North Carolina's Eastern Region was the first economic development organization to use ZoomProspector Enterprise: Commerce Edition's powerful enterprise-grade solution, with the recent launch of VisitNCEast.org to promote points of interest, venues, events, restaurants and accommodations for the region's twelve counties.

Mr. Ubalde notes that, "Online users of VisitNCEast.org can quickly plan their travel throughout the region by searching for venues and events, then analyzing the surrounding businesses and synergistic points of interest around those locations. This, in addition to the driving directions that are displayed right on the map, provides an interactive way for people looking to visit the region to quickly plan their trip."
