Timmons Group Clients Can Now Take Advantage of Locational Intelligence Solutions including ParcelPoint, the Nation’s Largest Parcel Database
Richmond, VA—May 11, 2010 - Timmons Group, a leader in enterprise geospatial products and services, today announced it has established a strategic partnership with First American Spatial Solutions, a leader in spatial and natural hazard risk solutions. This partnership was created in order to enhance Timmons Groups’ solution offerings, allowing the firm’s clients to streamline decision making and improve operations.
Timmons Group will incorporate First American’s ParcelPoint® national cadastre into developed and delivered ESRI ArcGIS Server solutions. Containing data for more than 124 million property parcels, First American’s ParcelPoint is the nation's largest digital parcel database. In addition to the parcel fabric content in ParcelPoint, many of Timmons Group’s clients need to understand property risk. By leveraging First American’s risk hazard database content in its solutions, Timmons Group can facilitate rapid decision support for its clients in a cost-effective manner.
Timmons Group serves clients across multiple vertical markets, including land management, forestry, economic development, emergency management and response, transportation and utilities. Through this new partnership, Timmons Group’s innovative geospatial solutions will be complemented by the exceptional products and services offered by First American Spatial Solutions. An important asset for Timmons Group, ParcelPoint will enhance many of the firm’s client solutions by providing accurate location information and a seamless parcel fabric including ownership attribution.
“Many of our clients struggle to make accurate and timely decisions simply because they do not have access to seamless cadastre content in their delivered solution. First American Spatial Solutions’ cadastre fabric, parcel ownership information and associated risk content at the parcel level allows Timmons Group to create more complete solutions for our clients,” said Lowell Ballard, principal with Timmons Group. “A prime example is our Land LoGIStics framework for GIS land management and forestry. We work with many public and private clients who serve as consultants to private landowners; as such, our clients are responsible for educating, advising, and engaging these landowners in the practice of proper land management techniques. Prior to the establishment of a relationship with First American, our clients had to visit courthouses, perform extensive research and recreate parcel boundaries using Land LoGIStics. Now, our ability to integrate and resell ParcelPoint to our clients will provide them with more robust solutions while also saving countless man-hours and significantly reducing operating costs.”
