Locations & Analytics Practice

Locations & Analytics

Javelin Group provides a scientific approach to retail location intelligence and analytics.

Shape of chain: We help retailers to optimise their store estates in the digital retail era through a combination of proprietary location insight data and market leading analytics.

Commercial spaces: We help shopping centre and travel hub owners to ‘future-proof’ their investments through a combination of strategic research, proactive asset management, advanced analytics, commercial strategy (including digital) and deployment of the right technologies to engage customers and make the most of their assets.

Intelligent retail: We support our clients in the end-to-end adoption of an analytics-led business: from analytics transformational strategy, innovations, culture change and operating model through to data storage, advanced analytics and BI software tool implementation and support.

In recent years, we have delivered high-quality, fact-based, actionable, future-proofed evaluations of more than 250 store portfolios and more than 250 retail-led developments. Our analytics practice now serves more than 60 commercial organisations.

Please see our Locations & Analytics services below for further information.
