3 Reasons A Location Intelligence Platform Will Put Your 2019 Goals Within Reach January 21, 2019 Location Intelligence By: Jason Holte Share: TwitterFacebookLinkedIn Need an easier way to analyze and manage properties? Choose a location intelligence platform. The beginning of the year is an important time for planning. Budgets have been established and goals have been set, and now it’s time to finalize a plan for achieving those goals while staying under budget. As part of the planning process, you’re also likely evaluating the tools and resources that you can leverage to reach your goals. If your duties include property analysis, site selection, or right-of-way project management, then there’s one powerful tool that you simply can’t afford to leave out of your arsenal: location intelligence. Here are three reasons why: 1. Location Intelligence Saves You Time A recent Forbes article suggests that the first question to ask yourself when adopting new technology is “does it save you time?” With regard to location intelligence, the answer is a resounding “yes.” A location intelligence platform puts the property information you need at your fingertips with map-ready content, web services, and applications that can help you eliminate unnecessary visits to sites that don’t meet your target criteria. A strong location intelligence platform will also include information on the area surrounding a property including demographics, traffic data, points of interest, and more. Why spend hours in the field or collecting information from disparate data sources when you can conduct property analysis from the comfort of your desk? 2. Location Intelligence Facilitates Collaboration When an organization adopts a location intelligence platform, every team member working on the platform gains access to a singular source of information and location data. This allows team members to collaborate within and across departments with confidence, knowing that the data informing all decisions is consistent. 3. Location Intelligence Keeps You Ahead of the Competition Industries such as commercial real estate and land development are highly competitive. Resources are scarce, and the most successful professionals are those that can quickly identify and act upon off-market opportunities. A location intelligence platform can help you gain a competitive advantage. Search for the properties that are best suited to your needs, in the markets that you want to operate in, and access complete ownership information to speed the negotiation process.
