Geocortex by VertiGIS

Who We Are

MISSION
Helping people succeed with web mapping
We are a software and services organization headquartered in beautiful Victoria, BC. We believe that geography empowers people to make vastly better decisions about the world around us; we help them accomplish this with Geocortex technology.

OUR CORE VALUES
Since 1999, our core values have guided every decision we have made. They are:

1. The Golden Rule
It’s a classic – we treat one another and the people we do business with as we’d like to be treated.

2. Leaving the World a Better Place
We strive to ensure that the work we do helps us and the people who use our technology leave the world a better place than we found it.

3. Continuous Improvement
As individuals and as an organization we take pride in always finding new ways to challenge ourselves to do and be better.

OUR TECHNOLOGY BELIEFS
There are some key beliefs at the heart of our technology approach that guide our decisions and have shaped our business model:

1. Technology should be about getting things done
We’re excited about the “next great thing” and future of technology, but we’re more excited about getting things done in the real world today. So while we obsess about preparing for what’s coming in the future, we’re fundamentally about helping organizations actually get concrete things built to serve end-users.

2. New technology should eliminate old inefficiencies
All worthwhile new technology should capitalize on eliminating old inefficiencies; rather than capitalizing on the old inefficiencies themselves. We seek to create product features that eliminate billable hours (especially our own!).

3. A good product-centric approach trumps custom code
We believe that writing custom code or reinventing the wheel should be a last resort, not a first instinct. For a relatively complex application susceptible to change over time, a reusable and intelligently engineered product-centric approach can be vastly superior to custom code.

4. As simple as possible (and no simpler)
Through effective design, we strive to make the user experience as intuitive and simple as possible. Sometimes it means saying no to a feature, even when we can say yes. So we promote flexibility, but not at the cost of usability.
