A new on-line tool will make it easier for people to find information on doing business in the Strait region. On January 22, the Eastern Strait Regional Enterprise Network (ESREN) celebrated the launch of their Economic Development Investment Mapper (EDIM).
ESREN’s new database allows users to access this information on-line in one place. The program also includes other information that would be pertinent to industry, such as forestry and agricultural data, and information on transportation. Users can view the information in a user-friendly map format.
ESREN has worked with Bluejack Consulting Inc. to develop the database. Chris Turner, president and co-owner of Bluejack Consulting says the program is best described as an interactive Web map viewer for investors. He said that providing accessible data is crucial to demonstrating the Strait area is open for business.
“It will be there for the public to use and I think you will find that there will be more than just investors using it,” said Turner. “We’ve developed a user guide as well that is going to be online with the system that explains exactly how to use the tool.”
The investment database can be accessed by the public free of charge at: esren.ca.
