Estimate market potential in a new area
Use Prospex to produce a demographics based spending profile for your customers. Compare the actual sales against the profiled sales to get a good idea of market share in your store catchments. Use the profile to estimate market potential for new sales regions.
Profile your customers
Customer profiles provide valuable insight into the lifestyles and behaviours of your target audience. Customer profiles can also be used to segment your customer database and even find more customers.
Plan store locations
After estimating the potential in a new area, find the best location for a new store by importing retail data, such as grocery expenditure and spending patterns into Prospex. Identify who lives in the surrounding area and the travelling time to the proposed store and compare the results with existing stores.
Plan delivery routes and areas
Make deliveries more efficient. Find the best order to make deliveries using the shortest or quickest route between each delivery point. The software assesses road speeds, one way and no entry restrictions to calculate the most efficient route. Assign balanced and compact delivery areas to individual stores to improve your customer experience.
