Word-of-Mouth for a Geographic Information System Company: WOM for GIS

When a person asks me for a word-of-mouth (WOM) referral for a Geographic Information System (GIS) company, I say I know the work of one particular GIS company well.  I’ve seen it “server-side” since it’s a client of our social media PR services, and “client-side” since it’s creating the GIS-based RRx prescriptive system for my father’s land management company, Rural System, and the GIS framework for Handshake 2.0’s “killer app.”

To a person in search of a GIS company, I recommend David Bradshaw and InteractiveGIS without reservation.  Unless the person wants:

  • No-can-do-until-we-run-it-by-management corporate bureaucracy instead of agile, decisive leadership based on possibilities, not limits.
  • A GIS company that insists on use of its product instead of on creating adaptive, customized GIS to meet the client's needs.
  • A GIS company that sees GIS as only of use to cities, agencies and organizations instead of to those entities and businesses, corporations and entrepreneurs.
  • A tiny, one-person consulting shop instead of a team of multi-skilled professionals who not only talk GIS but do GIS.
  • A company manager who thinks of GIS as a desktop application instead of a company leader who foresees a future for GIS of fundamental ubiquity akin to that of binary code.
  • A company that uses GIS as a holy, sacred body of absolute, immutable truth (How many GIS layers can you fit on the head of a pin anyway?) instead of as a creative means to multiple ends of service, value, even a greater good.
  • A GIS company that manipulates spatial data instead of breathes and lives GIS.
  • A company that does GIS the way it’s always been done and would never, ever offer a Web-based GIS at auction on eBay.
