Esri Launches 2010 ArcLogistics Government Grant Program

$450,000 in Grants Available for Esri’s Cloud-Based Vehicle Routing and Scheduling Solution

REDLANDS, Calif. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — September 16, 2010 — Today Esri is launching the 2010 ArcLogistics Government Grant Program, which will award subscriptions to Esri’s new cloud-based vehicle routing solution. One hundred state and local government agencies in the United States will receive grants totaling $450,000 in value.

“This program provides a forum for governments to incorporate an easy-to-use online ArcGIS solution into their daily operations,” said Christopher Thomas, director of government marketing. “Our hope is to assist governments by increasing the productivity of employees who spend time in the field. I’m excited to see how governments will use ArcLogistics online to reduce costs while meeting green government objectives.”

Esri developed the program to help governments reduce recurring costs associated with running fleets of vehicles and managing mobile workforces. Grants will be awarded to governments that propose innovative approaches to routing that can be shared as lessons learned and best practices for other government agencies.

ArcLogistics helps anyone who needs to find locations, assign stops to vehicles, and sequence stops while considering factors such as time, cost, capacity, and productivity.

ArcLogistics has helped state and local governments reduce costs in

  • Health, housing, and building inspections
  • Property appraisals
  • Public works
  • Solid waste

Applicants can begin submitting their applications on September 16, 2010. The official deadline for all submissions is 5:00 p.m. (Pacific time) November 11, 2010.
