"We are excited at being able to tap information from mainstream resources like Four-Square and Twitter instantly within SDS" , Rich Roser, National Real Estate Director, Retro Fitness
Durham, NC (PRWEB) September 17, 2010
x-span results, inc, a leading provider of real estate trade area analysis technology, announces an integration of social cloud data into its Site Decision Systems™ (SDS) platform. SDS will integrate and coordinate feeds about retail and other various locations using the likes of Twitter, Four-Square, Google Buzz and Facebook's Places into the platform. Social media and in particular those fed by location-aware smartphones provide an almost continuous data stream that can be mined or searched for the latest trend information.
x-span results will use its SDS platform as the primary mechanism to transform these data into actionable business intelligence in geo-spatial, demographic, psychographic and econographic dimensions. SDS’s analytical environment is designed to promote access and availability of comprehensive, real-time intelligence in location-based decisions for businesses. In addition, the platform will serve as its own information community, allowing SDS users to post comments and information directly related to a site or location allowing users to share information about various business elements in a collaborative, seamless manner.
“We are excited at being able to tap information from mainstream resources like Four-Square and Twitter instantly within SDS. We spend a lot of time in the field and are eager to make use of a process that will allow us to capture and share information within the SDS community in a manner that promotes effective decision making across organizations. It’s one more element that will provide us a ‘leg-up’ in our analytical efforts and a step above traditional static data that can sometimes miss local and dynamic trends that may impact a decision to place a location,” said Rich Roser, National Real Estate Director, Retro Fitness.
“We are very excited to demonstrate the ability to integrate social media data streams and queries into our business intelligence solution on our SDS platform. We are able to enhance our customers understandings of winning store locations with real-time, multi-sourced data” said Andy Straker, CTO x-span results.
