Power your public programs with data analytics.

Make data driven decisions that help improve the quality of life for the communities you serve. From data enhancement to behavioural insights and community analysis, we work with government agencies to improve efficiencies, reduce costs and achieve better outcomes for public programs and initiatives.

Gain a deep understanding of your citizens

Use segmentation and behavioural insights to understand the values and attitudes of those living in your communities. Create healthier, safer environments by determining essential services levels based on citizen profiles and then deliver effective communications and media channel strategies. Reinvent how you deliver programs using demographic trends and data such as lifestyle, ethnicity, acculturation, language use or rates of crime in a given area.

Develop communities and evaluate catchment areas

Make informed site, location and capital investment decisions using analytics tools such as GIS mapping, geocoding and spatial analytics. Plan your communities based on the latest demographic data and neighbourhood trends, attract new business and spur retail development in your economic centers using location intelligence, grow tourism and determine the optimal mix of products and essential services for a specific location or area.

Enhance your data and improve decision making

Combine your data with our reliable, privacy compliant data to broaden your analytical capabilities. Meeting the highest quality standards, our data integrates with leading GIS software to help you perform forecasting, identify patterns and analyse trends. Using our demographic and financial databases, you can estimate variables such as daytime demand, understand your constituents’ net worth or find the highest concentration of young families in any geographic area.
