A retail outlet chain requested PAD GIS to develop of an internet-based GIS website that will be used by staff members internally in order to simplify and enhance the process of designating delivery staff to do deliveries of orders to areas surrounding the Warehouses.
A single, large spatial database was implemented, accessible to more than sixty real estate analysts nationwide. Street data for the entire country as well as demographic data and competitive data were purchased and loaded into the GIS. The websites primary purpose is to display groups of deliveries regions, made up of postal code regions, surrounding the delivery warehouses. The application allows the selection of one or more regions to be selected and added to a group. The result was faster turnaround for analysis requests, more accurate site locations, and most importantly, the use of a single selection methodology companywide.
