Demand Modelling

Use customer sales and demographics data to predict performance in existing and future locations.

Find out how effective your existing stores are. Prospex GIS takes the guesswork out of locating new stores. Use your sales data, store catchment profiles or lifestyle survey profiles to create a sales value profile. Apply that sales profile to existing store catchments to measure your performance against an expected modelled performance.
