Using data strategically gives locations a competitive advantage. That means taking advantage of powerful tools to build investment strategy internally, clarify objectives and targets, and then ensure decision makers can access and analyze key data online when the time comes to put together those shortlists.


When GIS Planning was acquired by the Financial Times at the beginning of 2017, we knew this meant good things for our clients, because we now had the power of the world's largest financial company behind us. This meant more data and more access to decision makers for our clients, but it also made ZoomProspector Enterprise part of fDi Intelligence's unparalleled suite of online data tools for economic development. 


Join us Tuesday, March 28th (1 p.m. EST, 10 a.m. PST) for an introductory overview of two critical data tools designed to give your location the edge when it comes to investment promotion.Chris Knight, Global Commercial Director for fDi Intelligence, and Russell Riblett, Vice President of Sales for GIS Planning, will show you how you can identify target investors for key markets, develop your promotion strategy using real time data, and ensure your key data is available online for site selectors and businesses looking to make successful location decisions.
