Location Center Sourcing

EDWC’s Location Center tool is a powerful resource for both helping companies quickly identify the optimal location for expansion or relocation AND for uncovering important decision support information relevant to operational and market decisions.

Location Center

EDWC’s Location Center uses online mapping technology to search and display the locations that exactly match your needs. The application objectively identifies the optimal communities for your business based on consistent, third-party data so you can truly compare apples-to-apples for all locations in the United States. You can use this tool to answer the following questions and more:

  • Where are the available properties that are right for my business?
  • Where is the right city or county for me to locate my business?
  • What are they market characteristics around a potential business location?
  • What nearby businesses may be competition or synergy for my company?
  • What are the geographic advantages of different business locations?
  • Who can assist me with my business start-up, expansion or relocation?
  • What does the workforce look like for my location?

Location Center provides a way for new and expanding businesses to find, compare and deeply analyze communities and available properties nationwide. The program can greatly simplify and speed up the decision-making process, freeing companies to be  able to quickly and accurately make informed decisions based on numerous data sets including demographic, business, transportation, and property information unavailable in any other sing website. In addition, it is a powerful tool for anyone that is looking to better understand their own communities and for conducting market research (“About ZoomProspector”, 2014).
