November hints and tips

Mass New Build:

Kalibrate Planning now offers the option to build multiple new builds in one action rather than have to repeat the same action multiple times.  We offer our client 2 ways to create multiple new builds.

1. Manually – Create multiple new builds directly on the map by selecting the points where you would like to add a new build – useful when you know a market well and want to test a couple of new locations quickly.

2. Via a file upload – create a csv file with the GPS coordinates (lat/longs) of the new builds you would like to simulate into Kalibrate Planning – this is appropriate when you have a list of locations, perhaps from a broker, which you want to simulate.

Once you have your list of selected locations – you can select a template to apply to these selected locations and you will also need to apply some standard location information.

You can then choose to run the selected new builds either as individual simulations or as one combined simulation.  Each tactic can then be edited as needed to reflect the specificities of each location.

How can this help me?

There are a number of scenarios when you might wish to consider using this feature:

  • Quickly test a number of potential new locations to understand their potential and identify the best options, including measuring the impact of cannibalisation on your existing network.
  • Model the impact of new competitor locations on your existing network using feedback from the field in one single simulation.
  • Updating your model with new site builds since the last survey to keep your model current.
