HDC needed to source tailor made A1 size laminated wall maps to include as part of the Wickes Store shopfit.
The key requirement was to produce a map with a 10 mile radius ring from the store location with 5 radius rings at 2 miles per ring. This would ensure that the Wickes employees would have a clear indication of the surrounding areas to assist with deliveries.
Acknowledging that the maps would be published on an ad hoc basis, HDC needed to have confidence in the output and know that each map would be identical.
Crucially, the maps would be required quickly so HDC needed to be sure that the chosen supplier could provide the maps within an agreed timescale, to quality and budget- everytime.
HDC selected Geoplan to produce the store maps and over 40 have been produced since the beginning of the relationship in 2006.
The map specification was designed by Geoplan and HDC to meet the specific business needs; and maps are printed using state-of-the-art digital print technology in colour and laminated for durability.
HDC selected from a wide range of data to produce the maps which include the radius rings. HDC also have the option to map customer locations, and/or county, drivetime or territory boundaries where required.
In just six simple steps, HDC designed the map template with one of the Geoplan expert team. The end result is a standardised map template which meets their exact requirements.
- Professional and high quality wall maps inclusive of industry standard data designed, as per the requirement.
- Expert Team at Geoplan to ensure that each map produced is exactly as required.
- Reliable service and clear service level agreement to ensure HDC can plan around the arrival of the map with confidence.
- Ability to flex the specification if requested by the end user, with the addition of county boundaries, drivetime catchments and/or additional datasets.
