492146870.jpgHave you ever made a sizable investment in new software to make life and work simpler, brought it home, felt the newness of the packaging in your hands, and placed up on something altar-like above your computer only to find in that same place completely untouched months later? We’ve all been there. Whether it’s Rosetta Stone, the Adobe Suite, or Esri Software, the sinking feeling is the same. There’s aren’t many things worse than letting that investment go to waste in the box it came in, especially when it’s brand new Esri software, designed to make your organization more profitable by helping you make better decisions based on the real hard data of your experience.


Esri software can have an incredible impact on your organization’s operations and processes, but you have to understand how this seemingly complex and truly technical system works to reap the benefits of its complex data processing. If you aren’t an ArcGIS guru, chances are you’ve purchased a product like ArcGIS for Server and realized you have no clue how to use it. Even if you manage to find your way around it, you have the nagging suspicion that you aren’t getting the most bang for your buck. If this is you, there are a few key questions that will help you get the ball rolling, and figure out what you need help with to unlock the full potential of Esri Software. Once you’ve answered those, you’ll have a better idea of where to start.

Often Overlooked Tools

ArcGIS for Desktop is an Esri Software that comes with multiple tools that are all too often left to get dusty. ArcGIS Online, for instance, allows you to make cool interactive maps for websites and mobile applications to engage audiences and customers across many industries. If you’re looking for a few tips and tricks to get started, want to learn how to use the stunning Esri templates, or are in need of further customization for your industry, ROK has the expertise to serve you.

The Next GIS Generation

ArcGIS Pro is the latest Esri software designed to be the new standard for GIS users, eventually replacing the long lived and beloved AcrGIS for Desktop. This online software is available for anyone to use and is faster and more responsive than what ArcGIS for Desktop users are used to. Not only will it make your workday all the more efficient, it also has 3D capabilities, giving you even more enhanced visualizations of all the data you have to sift through, helping you make more informed decisions for your organization.
