MADERA COUNTY – Good news for civic-minded techies on the go: you can now download the Madera County Economic Development Council (EDC) App for free on iTunes, Google Play and the Windows Phone store.
Designed to make it easy for business and travelers to find accessible information about Madera County, the new product is said to be the first app for mobile devices coming from an EDC in the state of California.
Concept for the application was developed between the EDC and Madera County’s Information Technology (IT) Department.
Development began when IT Department wanted to pilot an app and since the Economic Development Commission focuses on attracting new business and jobs it seemed like an appropriate place to start.
The free app offers an economic snapshot of Madera County. Information in the app includes:
• Available Commercial and Industrial Properties
• Tourist Information
• Community Information
• Contact Information
The app was designed to give people a quick understanding of the attractive qualities Madera County has to offer. The goal is to target Site Selectors, Real Estate Brokers, Business Managers and Owners, Entrepreneurs and the General Public. The first day the app was launched it received a four star rating.
“Good information, I downloaded this app to get some more information about moving to Madera and found it pretty useful,” stated a Google Play user, according to the EDC.
Madera County EDC has worked hard over the years to create a brand for Madera County with a consistent marketing message.
“This app carries our message to a new platform and being the first EDC in the state to offer an app shows that we are very aggressive in trying to reach all target audiences,” said Bobby Kahn, Executive Director, Madera County EDC. “We want to be accessible and available on all web driven platforms including social media, mobile devices and website.”
