Company Profile

Founded in 2005, GIS Dynamics is a Geographic Information Systems (GIS) company that provides custom solutions to a variety of industries. The company has evolved into providing geospatial software as a service (SaaS) applications to landscape, paving and snow removal contractors.

The online applications integrate high resolution aerial photography, measuring tools, property data and geospatial information and are designed to equip contractors with an efficient way to measure properties and produce proposals.

Business Situation

In early 2009, GIS Dynamics was first to develop estimating software for the landscape industry. Their introductory product, Go iLawn®, is an industry-leading web-based software solution that helps landscape contractors measure properties, bid jobs and win sales—without expensive and time-consuming travel.

According to Timothy Price, Vice President of Operations for GIS Dynamics, “Our clients will often view and measure properties on Go iLawn before meeting with a prospect. Many contractors bid on multiple landscaping or landscape maintenance opportunities located in different areas of the country. As such, our systems need to quickly identify the correct address of the prospective customer’s property or properties so they can confidently estimate the job without on-site visits.”

Another important component of the GO iLawn solution is the ability to provide nationwide parcel boundary maps that aid in the measurement and visualization of a property. Therefore, the parcel data within the GO iLawn solution’s GIS platform must be able to fulfill a very broad number of geographically disparate requests with consistently accurate output.

Technical Situation

Initially, GIS Dynamic technicians spent hours contacting county officials attempting to access parcel boundary data from various resources.

In fact, Mr. Price told CoreLogic, “When we eventually received parcel data from county officials, it was often outdated by several years, and therefore inaccurate. It didn’t take long for us to realize that we needed a more efficient way to collect this data. As a small company, we had neither the time nor the staff to dedicate to the job of collecting and maintaining parcel data on a county by county basis. We needed current property boundaries for the entire country.”


GIS Dynamics Found a Single and Trusted Solution for Their Parcel Boundary Requirements

ParcelPoint® is a robust and patented parcel dataset that has more U.S. coverage than any other source. At CoreLogic, we often refer to ourselves as our own best customer because the parcel dataset is a key location information component behind the accuracy of our industry leading Flood and Geospatial businesses.

With over 131 million out of an estimated 145 million parcels nationwide, CoreLogic is able to provide many county geographies that other providers may not have. Quarterly updates ensure that the parcel collection is growing and accurately maintained. Plus, with staff members dedicated and passionate about the product, clients have access to timely and knowledgeable technical support.
Trusted by a variety of industries, including the financial industry, the decision was made by Mr. Price and GIS Dynamics to invest in the best possible resource—ParcelPoint from CoreLogic.
