Esri Advisor

An Esri Advisor with expertise in Esri platform capabilities and/or vertical industry GIS implementations will be assigned to each Advantage Program customer. The Esri Advisor will become familiar with the customer’s GIS capabilities, Esri platform implementation, applications, release levels, and geospatial initiatives.

The Esri Advisor, in coordination with the Esri Account Manager, will:


  • Provide advice on GIS strategies, architectures, product selection, and release planning
  • Prepare for, and facilitate, an annual account planning session
  • Develop a collaborative Technical Work Plan outlining each customer’s vision, objectives, goals, and recommended activities 
    necessary to execute the plan
  • Maintain proactive communication and coordination throughout the engagement

Any customer may elect to obtain additional Esri Advisor hours from Esri for a supplemental price. Advisors are not substitutes for Esri Support Services or Esri Consulting Services.  Customers will continue to contact Esri Support Services as the first point of contact for all technical support needs. If Advisor support at a customer’s site is requested for activities beyond the annual account planning session, the associated travel costs will be an additional charge.

Annual Account Planning Session


A one-day annual account planning session will be coordinated and facilitated by the assigned Esri Advisor, with participation from other Esri account team members, and technical and industry staff. The objective of the annual meeting will be to discuss the customer’s overall GIS vision, objectives, and requirements. The targeted outcome for the annual meeting will be to define or revise the Technical Work Plan with input from key organizational stakeholders. 

Each customer will have the option to conduct the annual account planning session at Esri’s headquarters in Redlands, Esri regional offices, or at customer’s offices. However, Esri technical and industry staff may only be available via conference call and/or webcast if the meeting takes place at customer’s location. The meeting will be completed at a mutually agreed upon schedule during the term of the program. Advantage Program customers will be responsible for their own travel expenses.

Technical Work Plan


The Technical Work Plan is a working document collaboratively developed with input from the customer and the Advisor. Acting as a road map to drive collaboration and technical enablement, the primary objective of the Technical Work Plan is to outline customer’s GIS vision, goals, objectives and the recommended activities.
