Robert H. Giles, Jr., founder of Rural System, will be pitching RRx as a Live Open Angel Forum finalist on April 8, 2010, the second day of the the two-day VT KnowledgeWorks Second Annual Entrepreneurship Summit on April 7-8, 2010 at the Inn at Virginia Tech and Skelton Conference Center in Blacksburg, Virginia.
RRx is web-based Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) under development by Rural System, a corporation providing proprietary advanced plans, management services, and diverse enterprises for large rural lands and waters of absentee owners. A dynamic prescription system for optimal use of owned land, GIS-based and GPS supported, co-developed with InteractiveGIS, this expert system generates unique prescriptive reports for parcels of land through analysis of many factors to the precision of 10 m x 10 m units. RRx optimizes information from the owner, the land, GIS, markets, and more, and provides actions to implement for sustained, long-term profits.
RRx is the brain or engineof Rural System, a developing land management corporation. Offered soon, five tiers of diagnostics and prescriptions of increasing importance and detail are offered to customers for improving their land profits for the long term. The first tiers of Internet-based, site specific prescriptions arise from owners’ answers to questions and analyses of GIS data and maps. Subsequent, more costly tiers of the dynamic system are offered to improve significant land profitability leading to regional employment, community stability, and environmental health.
