Take your business to the next level with geolocation

Boost your business and improve your bottom line by adding geolocation, also referred to as location-based services, to your operations.

Solve countless operational challenges

Add custom geolocation features using Google Cloud Maps APIs to your website or apps. Everything makes sense more quickly when we look at custom maps, charts, graphs and diagrams.

Make better decisions

Bring together data from multiple internal and external sources and visualise it on a map.  Spot trends using heatmaps and take early action.

Visualise data

Improve sales and marketing

On top of using store locators in their website, retailers are also using geofences - virtual perimeters around a location - to push notifications.

Increase footfall

Improve customer experience

Take deliveries to the next level with real-time tracking.  Location data such as live traffic information, tell customers exactly when their parcels should arrive. 

Improve customer engagement

Deliver better customer service

By adding destination information to a rental site, revenues grew by more 2000%.  Knowing about local attractions or public transport made it easier for customers to make a choice.

Improve customer service

Optimise job scheduling

Combine data from internal systems with custom Google Maps to improve route planning. Identify the optimum patch for each employee and generate schedules that minimise travel time – and costs.

Predict travel times

Target marketing spend

Identify your ideal customers then apply geomarketing to advertising such as Google Ads and digital signage more precisely, and tailor your messages so they’re more relevant and engaging.

Use geomarketing

Reduce insurance premiums

A shipping company has significantly lowered its insurance costs by adding geolocation trackers to shipments, along with sensors for factors such as humidity, tip/tilt and acceleration. 

Create new revenue streams

Apply data science to your location data to identify patterns and insights.  Create new services and innovate based on the location data you are already collecting.
