Every Community Can Be a Smart Community

Empower your community with location

Small Government Cloud-Based Enterprise Agreement

GIS technology has been incorporated into many smart communities to improve the lives of residents. Implementing location in your community can allow you to stay current with municipal design, service delivery, communication with the public, and more. Although limited resources and access to technology can be challenging, Esri has created the Small Government Cloud-Based Enterprise Agreement (SGCBEA) for many more communities to have access to the latest GIS technology in an affordable and web-based environment.

Use location intelligence in your community

The ability to improve the lives of those you serve is within reach. GIS technology empowers local governments to be capable of doing things they never thought they could do.


Esri’s Small Cloud-Based Enterprise Agreement

Establishes four technology tenets that governments need to deliver to their community:

Data-driven performance

Tackle community issues while driving down costs, improving government responsiveness, and optimizing which problem areas to focus next.

Civic inclusion

Inform the public on what happens and why, in a context of where they live. Redefine the way residents and government communicate with each other.

Operational efficiency

Streamline workflows and processes, improve field data collection, and analyze data to make real-world decisions that speeds service delivery.

Planning and engineering

Foresee and plan how proposed development, changing demographics and lifestyles, and economic shifts will impact your community.

What’s included?

With the Small Government Cloud-Based Enterprise Agreement, governments serving populations of up to 15,000 people are provided access to essential tools, apps, and services to help them further implement a location based strategy within their community.
