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 around the country to supercharge your Economic Development with specialized tools made just for you.
