I highly recommend Cityviz as they are very professional, knowledgeable and provide helpful support.
The Cityviz data portal has provided our team with the tools and abilities to access data in one place. Not only does this streamline our processes in terms of providing information to clients, but the portal is publicly available providing our community, decision makers, and business executives with information at their fingertips they can use to make informed decisions. The Cityviz team is always working on new innovative ways to display the data, source new data sets, and works with our team to customize the dashboard to meet organizational strategic priorities.
Working with CityViz has been nothing short of amazing. They are enjoyable to work with, they listen to what you need and want, and they put it all together with ease and accuracy. The data platforms they have developed for the communities I have been involved with over the past couple of years offers the opportunity for better decision making which leads to better results from an economic, planning and development perspective.
