Location Intelligence and Summertime

The productive days of summer?

Many businesses think summer is the time to relax. It’s also a great time to gain a competitive advantage through location intelligence and data insights.

Your summer business strategy may consist of three (3) simple steps to gain that competitive edge:

  1. Look for easy access to data
  2. Ensure comprehensive data selection
  3. Better understand your risk

Look for Easy Access to GIS Data

When looking for risk related data:

  • Confirm the data is available through a web service.  This allows you to integrate information into your current platform such as the Purview AVM data and perils related data.
  • Understand how to obtain the highest match rate between your database and data services. This helps to avoid ambiguous addressing through the use of a unique address identifier (UAID®).
