technology that
matters to Seattle

What We Do

Your Data + Our Technology

We build custom mapping, visualization and analysis tools. Turn your data from Excel documents, project management systems or CRM tools into maps that work simply and easily across all your devices.

Integrate with Your Systems

Seattle in Progress does all the hard work in tracking permitting, design review, King County Assessor data and more so you don't have to. Feed all of our data on new construction and existing building stock into your existing database, CRM or project management tools.

Custom Reports and Analysis

Need more data than the public version of Seattle in Progress provides? Try a Seattle in Progress Pro subscription. Have even more specific data needs? Talk to us about custom one-off reports or a custom live report that always stays current with the latest data.

Site- or Project-specific Work

Have a proposal that you're pitching? Or a set of alternatives to present? Custom maps, visualizations and data analytics built around your project make presentations and communications both more convincing and more engaging.
