Authors: Todd Lewis, John Houweling
York Region, the fastest growing regional government in Canada, performs an annual survey of 28,000 employers to support Planning and Economic Development needs.
York Region envisioned a modern data collection system leveraging tablets, cloud services, and the Regionís ESRI-based GIS infrastructure. A cloud-based CRM repository, accessible to staff at the Region and 9 local municipalities, would also support tourism and business directory portals, viewable by the public.
