Sitegeist: An App that Makes You Look Smart
Filed under: Phone Apps for Construction — Tags: — nedpelger

If you work on the front end of building projects, getting involved during the site selection stage, you need the Sitegeist phone app. It gives demographic info on people, housing, fun, weather and history. ┬áHere’s a sample screen shot and more detailed screen info list below.

  1. People: median age, male/female age distribution, # of children under 5, household incomes and political contributions
  2. Housing: median home value, average rent, % of renters and how people commute
  3. Fun: nearby restaurants and movie theaters
  4. Weather: current weather and record highs and lows
  5. History: median age of homes and housing units built in last year

So add this little dynamo of an app to your phone. I am meeting a new potential customer today and plan to work this app into our conversation. Anything I can do to add value to my customer’s business adds value to me.

Thanks to Lex for shooting this app to me. Oh, did I mention it’s free? What’s not to like?
