Esri Professional Services

Industry Practices

For organizations that desire help through the entire GIS project life cycle, Esri offers project services, provided through our industry practices teams.

Our services are provided by subject-matter expert project managers, developers, cartographers, and other specialists who collaborate with you to define and achieve your immediate goals for using GIS while helping you lay the foundation to meet future needs.


Our approach is to support your vision by configuring Esri's commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) ArcGIS system. We find that using a COTS-based system [PDF] is

  • Faster to implement
  • More cost-effective to support
  • Easier to learn to use

When an out-of-the-box GIS solution doesn't fit your situation, we can deliver modular, flexible custom solutions.

Our goal is to help you be successful. Throughout your project, our consultants will share their knowledge and provide skill-building assistance to help you become self-sufficient at managing your GIS.
