The latest update of the Business Analyst web app includes a number of improvements and enhancements. This release brings new customization options for infographics, more powerful suitability analysis, use of your own data across the app, data updates, performance improvements and much more. Here are the key highlights:
Create Infographics Like a Pro
Custom infographics help you present your business and demographics analytics in a visually compelling and easy-to-understand format. Now you can:
- Make more informative infographics by using location attributes such as number of parking spaces, rent, and more.
- Add site pictures and present market information with more visual infographics.
- Bring in your own business data via the custom data setup workflow and use them in infographics.
- Design your amazing infographics exactly the way you want using a large number of new and improved customization options. For example, add floating text, shapes, and images to your charts, use sorting options for charts, set up dynamic logos and pictures, customize icons using your own SVG images, use printing options.
These are just a few examples and by no means justify the power of what is possible with infographics now. Login to the BA web app today, check out the Build Infographics workflow, and take your creativity to the next level.
Use Competitive Locations and Your Own Data in Suitability Analysis
Suitability Analysis allows you to identify the locations most suitable for your business. You can take a set of candidate locations, apply a set of weighted criteria, and rank them from most suitable to least suitable. Now you can:
- Incorporate competitive and complementary locations to make better suitability decisions. For example, factor in how many other sandwich places are within the trade area of a potential sandwich place you want to invest in.
- Bring in your own business data via the custom data setup workflow and use them in suitability analysis.
- Use site attributes added from the site details panel. Also, leverage the increased limit of using up to 1,000 locations in the workflow.
Bring in Your Own Data More Easily and Use It Across the App
Using your own business data is a critical part of your market analysis. Now, you can use custom data more comprehensively across mapping, analytics, and reporting workflows in the app. They are now available in custom reports, infographics, and suitability analysis in addition to their previous availability in color coded maps, Smart Map Search, and comparison reports. For example, you can easily bring in your sales data by zip code and create a color-coded map, report, or infographic that includes your sales data for a 5-minute drive time area. Additionally, you can experience an improved and more user friendly custom data setup workflow.
