  • Make the tool come to the user, not the other way around. Technology is powerful and should do most of the heavy lifting for you.
  • Data that is in a system isn’t useful if you can’t find it – or if it’s on some other system. GeoIQ Enterprise can search and retrieve data from other appliances, GeoCommons Community, or hundreds of other data repositories. Don’t keep all your data in a centralized system – but push it to all your centers and provide it at your users fingertips
  • Simply putting dots on a map – where are my stores? Where are my customers?
