LIVONIA, Mich.Valassis, the leader in marketing technology and consumer engagement, today announced it is the recipient of a Special Achievement in GIS (SAG) Award from Esri, the global leader in location intelligence. Rooted in the science of geography, geographic information systems (GIS) is the framework for gathering, managing and analyzing data.
