With more and more clients benefiting from our location information, we now have data on millions of interactions with our solution every month. This makes it much easier to know what users want and improve our solution accordingly. Armed with this insight, we decided to focus our efforts on increasing user engagement and mobile responsiveness. Read on to find out how our new design addresses these two challenges, and allows our clients to save money!
We have to confess: as city nerds, we’re obsessed with location data, and we spend our days (and sometimes our nights) coming up with new ways of generating location insights. We have received a lot of praise for ourLocation Scores, but far from making us rest on our laurels, this has encouraged us to keep innovating.

We score every street corner in a city based on factors such transit quality, quietness, and variety of nearby restaurants (check out any address in Canada). Normally, we use this data to help people find a great neighbourhood for a new house, or the perfect place to stay during a vacation. But, given the astronomical popularity of Pokémon GO, we thought we would use our data for something a bit different this time: helping you locate your favorite Pokémon!
We’re excited for this year’s Startup Fest, held in Montreal July 15–18. Every year, Startup Fest attracts more than 2,000 entrepreneurs, founders, and investors for a half-week of events, conferences, pitch contests, and fun. Over a dozen countries are represented, with delegations arriving from across the east coast, Ontario, and France. Startup Fest represents startup culture. It’s a place to think outside the box. This isn’t your usual conference- it’s a festival. And there’s a reason it’s held in Montreal.
