Covid-19 Update

 

Effective Monday, March 16, 2020 and until further notice, Econsult Solutions is having staff members work from home. This form of “social distancing” has been implemented with the safety of our staff and the community at large in mind. We have instituted all necessary remote-working features and remain open for business, hard at work on current engagements and eager to hear how we can support your needs. 

These are extraordinary times. The global pandemic has reached every aspect of every life in every corner of the world. More than ever, ESI stands ready to apply economics, strategy, and insight to help you move forward. Be on the lookout for additional content on our blog, Present Value. Together we will emerge stronger and wiser. 

RESEARCH METHODS

Urban and Geospatial Analysis

With more than 80% of world GDP generated by cities, urban centers are becoming the dominant playing ground for companies. To provide decision-support to business and city leaders, our team of urban experts and economists are uniquely able to analyze city, regional and community issues and trends. Unlike other research firms, ESI ThoughtLab can survey, interview, and convene city leaders, managers, and experts around the world. We also can create global information systems (GIS) and geospatial models to capture, store, manipulate, analyze, manage, and present spatial or geographic data. This enables us to detect, analyze, and understand patterns and relationships that can provide evidence-based insights to local government decisions.

Analyzing how technology transforms and interconnects cities

We conducted a rigorous benchmarking survey of city officials and managers in over 100 smart cities to gather data on their smart city investments, programs, and performance results across their full ecosystem, including mobility and transformation, energy and water, environment and sustainability, public safety and health, telecoms and IT, and buildings and infrastructure.
