Market expansion analysis with customer segmentation data
Knowing how to identify and utilize your brand’s customer profile can determine the success of your expansion into new markets. Previously, brands used demographics as the primary standard when determining their customers’ characteristics. SiteZeus allows growing brands to upgrade their understanding of their customer profiles with the use of Spatial.ai’s geosocial data.
Evaluating your grocery portfolio for optimization
Manually evaluating portfolio performance can be slow and strenuous. To streamline this process, SiteZeus’ Quadrant Recommendations categorizes your locations into four simple categories: Study, Grow, Relocate, or Optimize. Locations are sorted by analyzing their actual sales against projected sales. For instance, a site might currently be performing below average, however, SiteZeus projects that the site could be performing well above average. This site would subsequently be categorized under Optimize, helping quickly highlight opportunities for optimization. While this is just one example, brands use all four recommendation categories to determine their true portfolio potential and guide their optimization strategy. Users can study, test, and act on insights all in one platform.
SiteZeus announces partnership with Planned Grocery

Retail closure analysis with customer segmentation data
The pandemic forced many multi-unit brands to close their doors. While some sites are beginning to reopen, others will remain permanently closed. As brands analyze whether to close or reopen their existing sites, demographics will play an essential role. However, demographics alone does not depict the whole story. The missing piece? Geosocial customer segmentation data.
Satisfying America’s post-pandemic appetite
When COVID-19 brought the restaurant industry to its knees in February 2020, an interesting phenomenon occurred; everyone from hometown eateries to major multi-unit brands temporarily offered takeout and delivery to survive. Meanwhile, companies with pre-established off-premises systems (i.e. Chipotle), enjoyed increased revenues.
Building a fast and accurate predictive model for your grocery brand

SiteZeus allows your brand to skip this lengthy process and jump straight into using its highly predictive model. SiteZeus converges multiple datasets (brand data, population, mobile, geosocial, and more) to provide the machine learning with everything it needs to build a highly predictive model. By comparing each site’s predicted and actual revenues, SiteZeus even tests itself for accuracy. Brands are able to simply log in and begin using their predictive model 24/7.
