GIS is making a difference
Throughout the UK, Esri’s ArcGIS geographic information system (GIS) technology is making a difference.
In some organisations, it is improving the efficiency of mobile teams by giving them the ability to access, collect and share data in the field. In others, it is revealing fresh insight into complex issues and putting better information into the hands of decision makers. Many more are using GIS to engage with communities and the general public and improve understanding. Whether you work in a small start-up, a large enterprise, a not-for-profit organisation or a public sector body, we want to celebrate how GIS is making a difference for you.

A tremendous compliment and a great experience
Receiving a Customer Success Award from Esri UK was a tremendous compliment and validated the hard work that the team were carrying out to reduce and prevent harmful crime through evidence-based policing. Participation in the awards was a great experience for us from beginning to end. Having a video created to showcase our work was fantastic; it has really raised the profile of the team and our work across the force. Then to get up on stage at the Annual Conference to receive our award was a real stand out moment for us. Thank you for the opportunity to be part of the Esri UK Customer Success Awards.
