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