Location Planning

Use advanced data insights to make your next location investment decision

Utilise advanced data analytics to determine hard facts for your location planning

Now, more than ever, making the correct investment decisions around physical locations is critical to your organisation’s success. An incorrect location investment could cost your organisation both in revenue and wasted resources.

Deep understanding of your target audience, their behaviours and preferences, and critically, where they are over-represented should all form part of your location planning strategy.

Experian’s location planning solutions combine advanced consumer analytics with location and geospatial data. This helps you identify what makes your customers or outlets unique and provide you with a detailed understanding of the key socio-economic trends so you can optimise your location planning.
