The companies below have all been using eSpatial mapping software for over a year and have just renewed their eSpatial licenses. Here, they tell us why.*

eSpatial User Review 1:
Stephen Keller, Sales and Marketing manager, FuelCircle
“With a FuelCircle card, users can earn points by purchasing items from thousands of retail outlets across the USA. They can than then redeem these points against fuel from participating gas locations.
My job is to help recruit new partners to the business. One of the tools I use to do this is eSpatial.
eSpatial helps me provide an immediate answer to the inevitable question asked by retail partners: “How many oil-partnered locations do you have near our brand locations?”
By using Within Distance maps, I’m able to reveal how many potential retail partners are within 1, 3 and 5 miles of a fuel supply location. I’m also able to spot gaps in the market, by comparing gas station partners with the number of retail outlets encircling the fuel location.
People respond to visualization sometimes a lot better than a spreadsheet. For me, eSpatial is a significant time-saving tool. “It does exactly what it says it will do…it gets the job done.”
eSpatial User Review 2:
Graham Oliver, Managing Director, Door Entry IP
“Door Entry IP is a UK-based company that imports high-end security devices for use in homes and businesses. The company uses eSpatial as a planning tool. We have to deal with security people, custom installers and architects & specifiers. Those are our three main categories. That’s why we use eSpatial.
We deal with the whole of the UK so it makes it even more important of us to be able to pinpoint people in certain areas… We can see very clearly by just looking at the map what categories of people we’ve got in what areas. It works really well.
We’ve used all sorts of products in the past from a sales standpoint, but nothing that does it quite as visually as this. That’s what makes the difference.”
eSpatial User Review 3:
Bev Harrison, Project Lead, New Horizons
“New Horizons helps support community and charity-based organizations in the Doncaster area of the UK. New Horizons were asked to map these groups and individuals.
eSpatial has provided all the answers enabling us to deliver!
The local council wanted a bigger and better idea of what exactly was going on within the grass-roots community…They wanted an idea of what was going on right across the borough in respect of volunteer contributions to the way the communities are working and interacting.
eSpatial ticked all the boxes of the reporting, the mapping, the information because the map itself acts as a directory – but a more informative directory; as in address, where it is, what activities they [individuals, organizations or charities] provide….It’s a means to provide fast and easy access to information on a wide scoping range, from the commissioners at Doncaster Council right down to a person who just wants to know where their nearest football club is!”
