What Our Retail Clients Say
- “When searching for a solution, a user-friendly interface was of utmost importance to us, so business users could easily interact with the platform - in the office and on the go while visiting sites. We chose CARTO due to the selection of data available (more than 10,000 datasets globally), the ability to have an off-the-shelf solution (vs building from zero) and the possibility to have support from a world-class team of data science and development experts.”
Senior Manager, Parcel Service & Format Development
- “One of the main advantages that we now have is the ability to analyze competitors and where our clients are coming from. If revenue dramatically fluctuates at a store we are able to use CARTO’s Location Intelligence platform to analyze trends and consumer behavior to determine the best recourse for action.”
- “These solutions allow our Retail clients to be more proactive and less reactive in their brick and mortar site decisions. Rather than waiting for franchisees to submit locations, they can proactively find gaps in the market using the advanced whitespace analysis and very accurate revenue prediction models. This is a gamechanger for the modern retailer.”
