Under normal circumstances Geoplan can deliver a typical consultancy or software solution, 4 to 8 weeks from the initial enquiry. A project would normally follow these steps:

  • Initial enquiry.
  • Needs assessment - via telephone or personal visit.
  • Detailed fact finding meeting.
  • Confirm objectives and issue confidentiality agreement.
  • Assemble project and account team.
  • Receive and process relevant customer data.
  • Demonstrate the solution using customer data.
  • Submit quotation.
  • Secure sign-off.
  • Deliver solution and training.
  • Engage the support cycle.


THE GEOPLAN APPROACH

Geoplan does not abandon you with a complex software solution, once the key issues have been isolated, Geoplan can provide a full suite of performance improvement and business development services.

Essential to this process is the full exchange of business performance information, such that Geoplan can act as a true extension of the existing management structure and capability. Central to this methodology is the visualisation of your business through maps and geographic analysis. These views can be built up from a wide range of sources:

  • Key performance indicators – revenue, cost and service levels.
  • Existing, lapsed and competitor customers.
  • Prospects.
  • Suppliers.
  • Competitors.
  • Generators.
  • Campaign results.
  • Market research.
  • Depot, store, outlet and branch locations.
  • Sales, service and distribution territories.
