Our customers say

Colliers International
Colliers uses the Local Data Online dashboard to assist with its understanding of the retail and F&B markets. It has been particularly useful in tracking store closures in relation to the recent spate of CVAs, administrations and store rationalisation programmes. The dashboard enables us to react quickly to client and media requests.

Fable-Nov-16-2020-10-28-24-24-AM

We needed reliable reference data on all the shops trading in the UK. LDC gave us the names of the businesses operating in the country, including those that had gone bust during the historical time period that the Fable Data panel covers. Fable used the LDC file to seed our search for merchant names within our anonymised transaction data. We now have data set with millions of rows, covering thousands of merchants use to train and tune neural networks and support vector machines that identify merchants in consumer spend data for our clients. LDC saved us time and also helps us to identify the names of new merchants that start to trade and grow their store estate.

Clipper
Clipper worked with Local Data Company to map our Clicklink network, which delivers to retailers seven days a week, against the possible new partners with whom we might engage. Their team worked with speed, collaborated really well and transformed our understanding of what was possible. I would recommend them very highly.

Lambeth-1
The data LDC are providing through their Online Insights Platform and quarterly scorecards is giving us valuable insights into the composition of high streets and town centres across Lambeth. We can explore the mix of uses, vacancies and other key characteristics and trends in much finer grained detail than we have been able to using other datasets. The Covid-19 impact analysis will be particularly useful moving forward as we monitor trends in temporary and permanent business closures to inform our high street recovery activities. The LDC team are great to work with and have provided a lot of upfront support to ensure our locations of focus and scorecard categories are set up provide us the most useable analysis and insights possible."

Laura Davy
Head of High Streets
Chopstix
After opening a number of successful dark kitchens and with home delivery being an even more critical part of our strategy due to the covid-19 pandemic, Chopstix Group enlisted Local Data Company to support in the expansion of our dark kitchen network. LDC analysed the existing sites to establish drivers of performance and used this as a framework for identifying what the market capacity was for this concept as well as providing us with a list of locations to target. It was critical for us to work with live and accurate data for this project, and the experienced team at LDC helped up carve out a strategic plan of action against set against a complex market background.

Savills testimonial size
LDC data provides the most comprehensive insight into retail occupancy nationally.  With the data we can better appreciate variations of retail vacancy and the profile and footprint of retail provision across all retail places, and how the landscape has changed over time.

Devon CC-1

We have been regularly using Local Data Online to provide evidence on town centre vacancy rates for local retail centres around Devon and HotSW LEP. This has been particularly useful for both our monitoring of pandemic economic impacts that we report locally and to Government and for designing targeted interventions to form part of a Devon Covid economic recovery package of measures.

We make extensive use of the LDO dashboard to put data behind the decision-making process across the core areas of our retail business. The Location Overview, vacancy rate and Health Index features dovetail with our other data sources to inform understanding of the strengths of an asset as well as potential areas for improvement. LDO is particularly effective in providing a consistent view across our own assets and those in the wider market. This understanding feeds into our ever-evolving asset strategies in addition to informing the investment decisions we take. We also use the Retailer Overview and Fastest-Growing features with our Brand Account Management team. These features inform how we support our established brand partners in executing their strategy as well as identifying the next generation of occupiers to feed into our target list.
