Rockingham County Economic Development Launches New GIS Tool

-The County is the first in the state to utilize the power-packed, web-based tool.-

The Rockingham County Center for Economic Development, Small Business & Tourism launched a new, leading-edge geographic information systems (GIS) property search tool on its website.  GIS WebTech’s Recruit is the new, power-packed tool that is now available at & Sites

Rockingham County is the first community in North Carolina to use the tool, which will help companies, site selection consultants and commercial real estate brokers looking for properties find just what they need.

Recruit is an extensive online search tool of Rockingham County’s commercial/industrial real estate listings. It is designed to help business owners, brokers, site selectors and communities locate available commercial and industrial sites and buildings in the county.  It offers a free, searchable database of available buildings and sites, along with maps of demographics and customized reports.

 “Our new Recruit tool is a great, one-stop data resource for decision makers as they analyze and select business locations,” said Leigh Cockram, director of the Rockingham County Center for Economic Development, Small Business & Tourism. “It’s a powerful new tool that combines technology and data into one place to help businesses locate, expand and grow in Rockingham County.  Recruit allows us to promote this community with the best GIS and market data available.  ”

Recruit is more than a listing database of properties. Users can overlap data to create on-demand reports that combine property listings with labor market information, incentive information, infrastructure, census data, maps, local amenities and more.

“If a company is looking for a property with around 80,000 square feet of manufacturing space that’s 30 minutes from Piedmont Triad International Airport and is serviced by rail, this tool on our website has the capability to quickly pull up what’s available,” said Cockram.
