PolicyMap Wins Gold Stevie Award for Web Programming/Design

Philadelphia, PA – 10/15/14 – PolicyMap was named the winner of a Gold Stevie® Award in the Best Web Software Programming/Design category in The 11th Annual International Business Awards today.

PolicyMap won in the Best Web Software Programming/Design category.

Its first major redesign effort since launching in 2008, PolicyMap is now faster and easier to use, making community and market data more accessible and visually compelling through maps, tables, reports and analytic tools.
