Business Retention Software Platform

Built for Economic Development

in Local Cities and Counties

We have been looking for a CRM for the last 2 years. Everything we had tried were all too much for "sales" and too frustrating for us as a city ED team.

Finally, a CRM built for Economic Development

Join the small-mid sized cities and counties around the country to supercharge your Economic Development with specialized tools made just for you.


the BR&E CRM that comes with data

Many communities were hesitant to try any solution because they worry that they do not have enough data (if any at all), nor do they have the time to put it together.

We get it.

Unlike all generic CRM tools which come to you blank,

Bludot is pre-populated with data for every business in your community

so you can hit the ground running from the moment you log in.

Schedule a demo and see what data we have for your community

Before using Bludot, we did not have any data for our local businesses. No list of businesses, no industry sectors, no employee sizes, nothing.

Getting data populated is half the battle already done.
