How far will your customers travel?

Few stores can rely solely on people living close by to support them, so travel infrastructure is an important consideration in site selection. We have created TimeTravel, a dataset which accurately calculates average travel distances and times to and from any given UK location. This allows you to map realistic sales catchments for your store based on travel time. Our clients also use this data to define delivery area cost bandings, or even for nesting a “where is my nearest store” tool into their website.

Profile your best customers and find more like them

Where people live can give you an idea of their attitudes and behaviours. This geodemographic information can add greater depth to your customer data and let you identify and target hot spots of similar people who could be potential customers. Our P2 People & Places geodemographic profiling data, can be applied to your existing customer data, or you can create a model of your ideal customer and map similar audiences around current or potential store locations.

Complete location analysis at your fingertips

Before embarking on a new business venture or when reviewing an existing store network, there is no substitute for a complete site analysis. It will bring together all of the above features plus any number of additional sources of data to provide a robust picture of how profitable a site could be. For example:

  • Other features that might draw the right kind of customers: tourist attractions, similar businesses, local transport hubs.
  • Competitor locations and density
  • Road infrastructure and traffic conditions to give your store the largest customer draw
  • Access to other local infrastructure

Prospex is our complete geographic information system (GIS), allowing you to bring together map, table, and demographic data in one place.
