Why is SiteMining the ultimate toolbox?
Most retailers already have a system in place for site evaluation and site selection. SiteMining doesn't replace what you do now. Instead, it supplements those practices and helps you do those tasks more efficiently.
SiteMining has over a dozen uses for all members of your real estate department. The best way to understand the variety of uses is to arrange a demonstration in your offices, or over the phone, with a Site Analytics team member.
SiteMining was designed to be very easy to use, even for those who hate computers. It's available 24/7, anywhere in the country. Here are just ten of the issues which SiteMining helps retailer clients resolve within minutes.
Evaluate new sites Is this proposed site going to work for us? What should our sales forecast be? Which of our existing units are most comparable? Will this prove to be a big winner, or a big mistake?
Where Should We Go Next? Which trade areas are most promising for us? Which ones aren't going to work? Should we expand next into Miami or Atlanta? Philadelphia or Boston?
Solve the demographic puzzles Are the demographic standards we use really the best possible ones for our concept? Do other factors which we're not even considering influence the success of our stores? Which factors are not-so-important after all?
Refine co-tenant requirements We look for a handful of key co-tenants, but are we sure those are the right ones? Which crucial co-tenants are we ignoring? Whose wing of the mall should we be in? How much impact does competition really have for us?
Resolve disputes Should we look for household incomes above $60,000, or is $50,000 high enough? Does Median Age matter for us? Are we better off next to an Office Depot or a Home Depot? Should we put a traditional unit here or an Express unit?
