RICHMOND - The Virginia Economic Development Partnership (VEDP) today announced the launch of its free YesVA mobile app available for the iPhone, iPad and Android. The YesVA app is a new, innovative tool for economic development that allows economic developers, allies, clients and consultants to perform site and building searches as well as compare Virginia to other states from a mobile device.

Mobile app features include:

• Explore Virginia’s existing inventory of available properties in a simple-to-use map
• Navigate properties by type and narrow down the options based on your requirements
• Save properties for later and share them with your contacts
• View one-to-one comparisons of how Virginia compares to other states in major business comparison categories
• View Community Profiles for each of the communities, regions and MSAs in the Commonwealth
• View recent industry announcements for each community
• Simple communication with the YesVA team for questions or concerns regarding any of the properties within the app

The YesVA app was designed to help companies make the most informed location decision for their business in a way that is powerful, portable and free.

“VEDP strives to find the most innovative ways to market Virginia, and the YesVA app exemplifies this goal,” said VEDP President and CEO Martin Briley. “Our clients and Virginia allies are paramount to the economic vitality of the Commonwealth, and the mobile app is one more way VEDP can provide a resource to help bring jobs and investment to our citizens.”
