We have found the software to be flexible, intuitive and easy to navigate. Over the past few years, we have added additional new benefits for our membership and Catylist was there to help us through the whole process. Now we have several economic development entities using Catylist's SiteFinder, and have added additional demographic information and listing syndication options to mention a few recent enhancements. When it was time for us to renew our contract, it was an easy decision for our board. We look forward to our continued working relationship with Catalyst."
