Happy July, Everyone!
It’s that time of the year - Longer days, picnics, barbeques, fireworks, or, if you work in an office, sweating while you email! Towel off and keep typing, everyone, only one more word mile to go.
As we gear up for a wonderful 4th of July weekend, the Loveland team has some updates on the grill that we’re ready to turn over.
1. Data Partner and Reseller Program -
For those of you in the data business:
Wouldn’t it be nice if you could distribute or advertise your data to an engaged and growing nationwide audience? Wouldn’t it be nice if you could offer your customers the option of adding affordable nationwide parcel data without sending them to someone else?
We are actively seeking data partners along two dimensions:
- If you have a large property dataset, we would like to integrate it into the landgrid.com website for our visitors and customers. Depending on the dataset and your desire, we can make it freely available with linked credit back to you, or charge for access and share the funds with you.
- If you are interested in offering our data to your customers or potential customers, we can make that easy and do a fair revenue split. Bam. Your value proposition just went up a few notches.
Our goal is to provide more out-of-the-box data to our visitors and customers, and to reach more people with our nationwide parcel dataset while helping other data providers succeed. Simply write us at email@example.com and we’ll talk through it together.
We have already set up a few of these relationships. Here is one example:
2. Landgrid Data is now available on the Demyst Marketplace -
DemystData is one of the largest data marketplaces in the world, dedicated to serving large data users who can pick and choose from many different data offerings. They carry 100’s of data products & API’s on their site and we are thrilled to join the ranks of many of our colleagues on Demyst.
Here’s a blog by Demyst announcing the availability of the Landgrid Data API on their marketplace - https://demyst.com/2019/05/23/landgrid-data-spotlight/
3. Customer Spotlight:
We’re not big self-promoters here at Loveland, but we are trying to get better at telling the stories of the projects we work on and the results our customers achieve with both our software and our data. Keeping customers happy and satisfied has always been a top priority for us and our team works hard to accomplish this.
Here’s what Michele Oberholtzer from the United Community Housing Coalition (UCHC) recently had to say about the value that she and her organization get from our Landgrid Enterprise software and services:
4. New Landgrid Free -
We recently launched an improved & simplified free version of our Landgrid Mapping Platform. For those of us who would like to test out what the Landgrid platform is capable of doing before investing in our paid subs, this is just the right tool. It’s limited but it allows for a user to get a taste of what the platform can do in its full capacity. If you know of friends and family who could benefit from this tool, please let them know. Its free forever, and doesn’t require a credit card to signup.
This is also a wonderful gateway into trying before upgrading into Landgrid Pro - which has unlimited options and features and can get absolutely anybody started on their property mapping & surveying endeavours (without prior GIS experience) for just $10/month. Looking to make a change from Free to Pro?? Sign up here.
5. Migration From SiteControl to Landgrid.com -
Those of you in the know have been aware of our recent re-branding efforts from Makeloveland and Sitecontrol to landgrid.com. Not only was this just a rebranding effort but also a migration of our platform from sitecontrol.us to landgrid.com.
Basically, this means that those of you who signed up with us on Sitecontol can continue to use your account with the exact same login credentials on landgrid.com. It’s the same platform in terms of functionality but with a different, improved user interface.
We plan on shutting down Sitecontrol.com altogether on November 1st, 2019. There is still plenty of time. We know change is not easy but we urge you to start familiarizing yourself with landgrid.com and slowly move away from your Sitecontrol accounts. This will make the transition into the new UI easier. Please bear in mind that we have replicated everything on landgrid.com and we are working on adding more usability related features & in-app onboarding to our platform soon.
If you ever feel like you need help to transition from Sitecontrol to Landgrid, please feel free to email firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com and we will work with you to make this process smoother.
6. Mapping Mondays - Well, who doesn’t love Maps! Mondays can be less beloved, so starting this week, we kicked off a new program called the “Mapping Mondays” to take the edge off with a tiny espresso shot of geography. Every monday, you will find beautiful, color coded parcel maps built on none other than the Landgrid Pro on our social media accounts which you can follow here:
Please send us requests for the kind of maps you would like to see and we will build those and showcase them for you.
Soon we would like to start mapping tutorials (Webinars & Google Hangouts) so you can watch the software in action and learn how to map & survey with Landgrid Pro & Enterprise. We can help you with specific use cases that would be useful to you in your everyday projects at work.
Well, that’s it from us this July. There will be many more updates in the August edition, including USPS residential & vacancy data.
Until then, don’t be shy if we can help you solve your property data challenges.
A Very Happy 4th of July to all of you, from the Loveland Team!
