Invest in the right place at the right time

Visualise demand

Most enterprises exist to meet the needs of a group of people. Demographics is the key to knowing where those people are. The best way to consume this information is in a map. You can quickly see hot spots of demand and how that will change in the future.

Visualise supply

How well are your services and facilities located to meet the underlying demand? What about your competitors? Do you know where you will need to be in the future?  Seeing your supply information overlaid on the demand maps immediately points to issues and opportunities.

Explore opportunities

Combine your business data with our population forecasts and get unprecedented insight into how and why populations are changing and therefore where and when to respond. Placemaker lets you explore “what ifs” and discover opportunities you didn’t know existed.

Share and present

Present the evidence in a visually compelling way. If you are making a location decision, then it makes sense to have that discussion around a map – and when you can interact with and explore the map, you quickly create engaging discussion and stakeholder buy-in.

Made for decision makers

Placemaker’s web-based mapping platform puts the power of exploration and decision making back into the hands of decision makers. Placemaker removes technical burdens and complexity and provides answers quickly and intuitively.

Take it on the road
