Geodemographic profiling

A good GIS can help you to add depth to your geographical data. It does this by applying geodemographic profiling or customer data to gain meaningful insight about the people in an area. Prospex was developed alongside our own P2 People & Places demographic profiling data, meaning that geodemographic profiling is an integral part of its location intelligence toolset, not an afterthought.

Territory management and route scheduling

Prospex can utilise geographic and demographic data to make sales territory mapping, route planning, and territory management for your team simple and effective. Defining territories can be as complex as you wish, from simply splitting an area into equally sized territories for your team, to creating bespoke territories based on size, travel distance, customer value, audience profile and density. Once created, Prospex helps to plot efficient sales or delivery routes and effectively manage your network as your strategy evolves.

Integrate with other software and share insight across your organisation

Prospex has been developed alongside our P2 People & Places geodemographic profiling and TimeTravel travel-distance and time data. As such, it has been designed with integration of other data in mind. These datasets add additional depth or insight to your analysis. It can accommodate most major demographic datasets, from census and other public data, to proprietary profiling data from most well-known providers. It can also open commonly used GIS files from existing systems and export results as complete projects so that other users can instantly pick up a project and develop or use it.

Ongoing support

Prospex comes with unlimited telephone and remote support during business hours, and on-site annual training days at no added cost. So you can choose between remote support to get your experienced team started, or dedicated on-site training to up-skill your team as GIS users with Prospex expertise.

More than just software

A small, agile company, Beacon Dodsworth offers bespoke support for any company looking to do something new or innovative. With 25 years of experience, we can offer you the guidance to use our software to the best effect, pick up your GIS workload if you are short staffed, or lack in-house expertise, or conduct bespoke projects using new or unusual data with our in-house tools.

The ability to export complete projects from Prospex and share them amongst other users, gives us the tactical flexibility to act as an integral part of your own team. We can undertake the more difficult aspects of a project and then pass it back to your own organisation to fine tune or create bespoke outputs for analysis or presentation to senior management.
