The new Sidwell Change Detection was a true eye opener. With limited staff and no county zoning, it’s impossible to keep up with all of the changes in Marion County. This service provided me with exactly which parcels I needed to visit and will save a tremendous amount of labor hours in the field.
Patty BroughMarion County, Illinois Supervisor of Assessments
“We were looking for a company that could take our paper maps and create 40,000 parcels using COGO, put them in Esri’s Parcel Fabric using the Local Government Model, and it all had to be reasonably priced. Sidwell’s proposal included all of that, and more.”
Amy SwigartGuernsey County, OH Deputy Auditor
The Sidwell Company is a standout among the industry leaders we worked with to develop and implement our integrated system. They have the finest and friendliest employees from customer support to their top leadership, and best of all, and unfailing reliable product.
Scott McMullenPinal County, AZ Mapping/Splits
Sidwell has a very good reputation for quality and customer support. We were in need of an updated GIS web solution, and I felt like Sidwell was the right choice for this. Brian Baker, the account manager, and Mark Kemper, the project manager were patient and always had thorough answers for all my questions. I felt comfortable with them, and it was apparent that Sidwell was willing to invest the time to make sure I understood what the LGIM and Fabric was all about
Jill ZerrusenEffingham County, IL GIS Manager
“We knew the power of what a common base layer like the parcel fabric dataset could do for our GIS operations, and it did not disappoint. Our excitement stemmed from the ability to connect our data in a more meaningful way via the parcels. It was like turning on a light in a dark room. Today our GIS has performed functions not even imagined at the time of initial creation of the parcel dataset because of its incorporation into our daily operations”
Kevin Eaton, Franklin County GIS Coordinator
“The idea of being able to plug data in without changing fields was really attractive as a small staffed county.” (discussing the LGIM)
Lauren LeeWhiteside County, IL, GIS Coordinator
Our mapping system has grown by leaps and bounds. We are now able to produce wonderful colored maps for our constituents and share data with other governmental departments that we were unable to in the past. This data sharing is vital when a natural disaster happens as has happened here in June of 2012. We are also able to add data layers to our current mapping system, which is a key component for other offices within Lincoln County. The Sidwell Company has provided excellent training and technical support for our GIS department.

It has and is a pleasant experience working with Sidwell and everyone has always been so friendly and helpful.
Ronny BurranChief Appraiser, Terry County, TX Appraisal District
It is just so nice to know I can call Sidwell and always have a friendly response and an explanation on how to do something. I really don’t have anyone here to help me with the mapping so it’s refreshing to have someone to communicate with that is so friendly. I just wanted to take a few minutes to let you know how much Marshall County appreciates all of his assistance, you have great employees!
Melanie EwaltMarshall County, IA GIS Specialist
I felt the need to write directly to Sidwell to commend Rich in your help desk. He has been great to work with during our conversion to using land use, installing a new computer just a few days ago, and has really made my job much easier. He is always so patient, well prepared and willing to walk me through any questions about the software that I might ask. I am grateful that you have him on staff; it has been a joy to work with him.
Megan MoellerFranklin and Hardin Counties, IA - GIS Technician
Extraordinary!!! That is how I would describe the service I have received from The Sidwell Company throughout the past ten months! During this short timeframe, Van Buren County was able to complete both a Land Use and an Orthophotography project! I have become a huge fan of Account Manager, Mel Obbink. His willingness to attended my Conference Board and E911 Board meetings was an integral part of securing approval for both projects. I truly appreciate his eagerness to address my concerns and answer my frequent questions, even if I call on his day off. It has been wonderful to deal with someone who understands the Assessor’s job, the budgeting process and the obstacles we encounter. I look forward to our continued relationship with The Sidwell Company.
Dixie SaundersVan Buren County Assessor
I just wanted to share a quick thank you. I was able to utilize your recent hard work and updates in WPS online with some job updates last night. The tools in place were simply amazing in providing efficiency and ease in doing the needed tasks… Thank you. Thank you. Thank you!
