Spatial workflows for corporate social responsibility

Measure savings and sustain brand value

Supporting sustainability goals is good for business. Location intelligence delivers supply chain visibility and transparency to show how operations measure up to these goals, inform long-range planning, and drive bottom-line results.

Responsibility backs quality

Supply chain integrity is a vital component of every business's operational plan—from sourcing raw materials to completing construction and meeting service commitments. Location-based technology helps businesses understand all aspects of a supply chain through data visualization and analysis. Examining data through a geographic lens gives stakeholders unique insights into levels of service, supply quantities, product movement, and risk mitigation.

Harness data to influence change

Connecting with customers requires knowing what they care about. Research and development (R&D) is critical for new product creation and storytelling that connects with customers. From product development to building brand equity and trust, location intelligence helps businesses understand more about current and potential customers at the city and neighborhood levels.
