SCHNEIDER GEOSPATIAL ACQUIRES THE ELEVATE PRODUCT AND LOCAL GOVERNMENT CONSULTING PRACTICE FROM 39 DEGREES NORTH
Schneider Geospatial, LLC and 39 Degrees North, LLC today announced Schneider’s acquisition of the Elevate product and the local-government consulting practice from 39 Degrees, a leading provider of Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and real-estate web portals in the local-government market. This acquisition adds additional clients and resources to one of largest organizations of its kind in the US. It also expands Schneider Geospatial’s Indiana county client base to include over two thirds of the state.
The Elevate team and its clients will be incorporated into Schneider Geospatial and will operate as an integrated business serving nearly 600 local-government clients in 28 states. The popular Elevate web portal and supporting GIS services will become part of Schneider Geospatial’s growing suite of solutions that includes Beacon, qPublic.net, GeoPermits, IDAM, Agland, Draincalc, and Geogear. "We are excited to welcome the Elevate clients and team to Schneider Geospatial," says Jeff Corns, President of Schneider Geospatial. "The new integrated team will continue to provide all of our clients with incredible innovation and customer service."
While many companies are looking for ways to scale back in 2020, Schneider Geospatial has expanded their services while working remotely to help ensure that local governments remain as accessible to the public as possible. Partnering with local government officials, Schneider Geospatial’s popular GovTech platforms have serviced over 200 million requests for information from over 35 million visitors since the COVID-19 pandemic started.
This acquisition brings new opportunities for both Schneider Geospatial and 39 Degrees North. Both companies, previously direct competitors, are looking forward to future partnering opportunities. 39 Degrees North will continue its operations with a renewed focus on markets outside of local government. "This agreement will allow the Elevate team and its client base to continue to grow while 39 Degrees North focuses on commercial partners and the state and federal markets," says Prem Radhakrishnan, the managing member of 39 Degrees North.
