Redbricks.com and Spatial Insights, Inc. are partnering to provide state-of-the-art tools for customizing commercial real estate loan applications by giving customers the ability to obtain critical loan portfolio components 24 hours a day, 7 days a week on www.Redbricks.com.
Redbricks.com, the premier online destination for commercial real estate owners and developers, now offers economic and demographic reports as well as custom maps for virtually any location in the United States. Spatial Insights is providing the geographic links to Redbricks’ data warehouse, enabling the Web site to create such reports for users.
”We are thrilled to work with Redbricks on this project,” says Spatial Insights president Don Segal. “It is a textbook example of how geography provides the glue that holds everything together to plumb the depths of a data warehouse.”
Following the links to “maps” or “reports” within the site, a user simply types in any U.S. address. Redbricks.com then provides a list of various economic and demographic reports available for the specific address and surrounding areas. Additionally, a user may select a specific market segment from 600 different areas or from over 3,000 U.S. counties. Soon, a user will be able to obtain detailed demographic reports from areas within 5, 10 and 15 miles of the address specified.
“Redbricks.com is committed to providing our users with the most advanced Web applications in order to make the loan processing system easier. Spatial Insights brings to our site the ability to map virtually any address in the country, but more importantly, with this ability, we can provide vital economic and demographic reports from the region,” said Redbricks.com CEO Lisa Max.
Spatial Insights is also supporting Redbricks.com with a powerful mapping system that produces a map from the address entered located and highlighted in an area of about 10 square miles. A simple set of mapping tools allows the user to change the view on the fly, and when the map is exactly positioned as the user wants, the image can be saved directly onto the computer hard drive.
