Actionable Business Insights based on Location


Understand Your Customers and Their Relationships with your Sites




Location intelligence solutions from Precisely empower leading enterprises to understand their customers, suppliers and partners and their relationship to location. 

The Value of Location Intelligence

  • Increasingly, smart retailers are recognising the correlation between their customers' movements and when and where they shop. Analytics can inform store locations, drive personalised marketing strategies, and even inform product strategies per store.
  • Risk assessment and underwriting is another common use case. Insurance companies can reduce underwriting bills, for example, by assessing the insured location to other risk indicators and demographics.
  • Infrastructure planning. Telecommunications operators are rolling out new 5G or fibre networks, for example, and need to understand where to prioritise investment to maximise returns. Similarly, other service providers, such as municipalities or utility providers are leveraging location with related data to inform decisions on the delivery of services.
  • Finally, logistics and supply chain companies can reduce delivery costs by building a better understanding of route planning through location and traffic analytics.

In each case, location intelligence links a company's products or services to their consumers

What is Location Intelligence?

We define location intelligence as the ability to analyze location data for enhanced and actionable business insights.

Geography has historically been seen as a specialist data set - confined to the GIS specialists for very specific applications.

Now, the Internet of Things (IoT) and devices such as mobile phones are providing valuable location data that is being applied across a range of industries and for a variety of purposes.  

Selecting an Enterprise Spatial Intelligence Solution

Rolling location intelligence out into the enterprise is not easy.

One problem is access. Companies are democratising analytics and must plan to include geography in this process. The challenge is to move from being "map-centric" to being "data-centric" by adding geography data into commonly used analytics data sets.

Another common challenge is data hygiene. A recent survey shows that the main challenges of GIS include data accuracy and effective data management. This problem is exacerbated for multinational firms, that must consolidate or source location datasets for multiple geographies, but is a real problem for many.

Last, but certainly not least, large organisations need reliable, scalable and secure solutions that can connect to enterprise systems and enrich enterprise data sets without impacting operational performance, and without compromising privacy.
