Burlington Economic Development Corporation Launches BurlingtonSites, An Innovative Tool For New And Expanding Businesses
Burlington Economic Development Corporation (BEDC) is pleased to announce the launch of BurlingtonSites, a dynamic tool that provides access to critical business intelligence in just one click.
Today, over 97% of initial site selection screening is done online, and with BurlingtonSites, decision makers can now access the information they need to make smart investment decisions quickly and easily. Equipped with state-of-the-art site selection mapping capabilities that uses GIS and Google Maps technology, users can view available properties, along with size, use, cost and development incentives. Additionally, corresponding demographic reports such as labour force, education levels, consumer spending, and age can be created alongside industry maps showing distribution and concentrations throughout Burlington areas.
“It is important that we provide a complete picture of the great opportunity that Burlington provides,” said Frank McKeown, Executive Director with BEDC. “With BurlingtonSites, we are able to integrate pertinent data together, resulting in the delivery of a professional package to prospective customers. BurlingtonSites allows us to view opportunities and data with the same lens that sophisticated companies and developers use.”
