Why Did Dominion Enterprises Choose Neighborhood Boundaries from Maponics?

Maponics Neighborhood Boundaries Carve Out Competitive Advantage
Norwich, VT - Dominion Enterprises, the dynamic company behind Homes.com, eNeighborhoods and dozens of other market-leading web brands, has chosen Maponics Neighborhood Boundaries™ for its advanced local search capability.
Already dominant in many markets, Dominion Enterprises continually challenges itself to stay ahead of the competition. They know the best way to win new business is to offer their users unparalleled results.
Imagine looking for a home in a big city. Your sister tells you about a great neighborhood and you go to a website to search. But the site you visit only allows users to search by city or ZIP Code. City is too broad and you don’t have any idea what ZIP Codes cover that neighborhood. So you are stuck.
With Dominion’s integration of Maponics Neighborhood Boundaries, you can now view search results by neighborhood, as well as by town or ZIP Code.
“Clearly, Dominion Enterprises ‘gets it’ when it comes to user experience and they will undoubtedly emerge from the economic slowdown even stronger than their competition,” says Darrin Clement, President of Maponics. “We are also very proud to be working with Dominion.”
But Why Choose Maponics?
“Our users need truly local search and should be able to search using whatever information they have,” says Andy Woolley, eNeighborhoods Vice President. “We looked at other providers, and we liked the overall value from Maponics, including the fact that their maps have clear, distinct neighborhood boundary lines. Maponics’ record of consistent database expansion made this an easy choice.”
Maponics is the only provider to offer neighborhood polygons with three levels of neighborhood hierarchy (neighborhoods, sub-neighborhoods, macro-neighborhoods), plus additional city and county based map layers to dramatically improve the relevance of search results.
“Because we specialize in polygon databases, our customers get a very focused vendor with strong product lines that complement our neighborhood data. This includes high quality, internally-created ZIP Code areas (not recycled census ZCTA data),” adds Clement. “Plus, we offer a 100% money back guarantee – which, we are happy to say, no client has ever asked for.”
