Test site remodel scenarios for a single site or your entire fleet to improve portfolio performance
Whenever a multi-unit brand decides to remodel one or multiple sites, the questions is always, “What will my ROI be?” Making physical or operational changes can be costly, so it’s critical to understand how the changes will affect stores’ revenue. With SiteZeus’s portfolio optimization solution, brands can navigate these decisions with confidence.
Test sales impact with SiteZeus’ new breakthrough solution
Great multi-unit brands recognize the importance of calculated infill growth. However, identifying potential sites with an acceptable amount of cannibalization on existing locations can be difficult. SiteZeus understands this obstacle, which is why we’ve created an A.I.-powered solution making the struggle of time-consuming and unreliable sales impact studies a thing of the past. Why SiteZeus? SiteZeus’ A.I.-powered Sales Impact solution forecasts potential sales transfer with unprecedented accuracy. Our approach leverages actual customer trip data to measure cannibalization in under a minute. This innovative methodology analyzes all the trips taken to your existing site over the last 365 days to predict how customers will shift to a new location.

Identify revenue potential and analyze sales impact in a single platform
Calculating infill growth has been a challenging process for multi-unit brands, as it involves finding areas with high revenue potential without cannibalizing existing stores’ sales. Traditionally, these were two separate workflows. The first step was to calculate revenue projections for potential sites, then separately test the impact of opening new stores near existing locations. This process was tedious, expensive, and usually took four to six weeks, leaving brands with questionable accuracy. One advantage of new modern techniques is using multiple market planning solutions in tandem to find the best performing markets and locations. The SiteZeus platform allows real estate teams to accurately forecast sales potential and the impact a potential site opening will have on existing locations, all in under a minute. With this dynamic duo of solutions, you can evaluate potential sites faster and with more confidence than ever before.

A.I.-powered sales impact solution revolutionizes multi-unit market planning

To help avoid such costly errors, SiteZeus has announced the release of its new A.I.-powered Sales Impact solution which leverages mobile data and geofencing to empower real estate teams to run unparalleled analyses and help identify where to open their next location in an existing territory.
