Frequently asked questions

Do I need a network planning tool if I don’t intend to build new sites?

Forecasting the potential of new-to-industry sites is a major use case for Kalibrate Planning, but it’s not the only one.

There’s also network optimization, mergers and acquisitions, network rationalization, and reacting to market changes.

Perhaps most compellingly, Kalibrate Planning can simulate combinations of these scenarios, for example, the arrival of a new competitor, alongside the rebrand of an acquired site, and the divestment of another site nearby.

Can I forecast fresh food, convenience store, and QSR as well as fuel?

The newest versions of Kalibrate Planning allow you to model both fuel and non-fuel offerings.

Understanding why customers come to your locations (i.e. what the volume magnets are) is a major output of the platform. Once you understand the reasons why some sites work and others don’t, you can start to model changes at each site to maximize performance.

Will it take a lot of time and work to get my data formatted for Kalibrate Planning?

We are responsible for data curation, the predictive modeling, and the ingress of your data. We will work with your team to make that as easy and as quickly as possible.

Delivering accurate results fast is one of our key objectives, and we want to reduce your time-to-value by providing analysis as quickly as we can.

Does Kalibrate still carry out on-site surveys to gather site attributes for all sites in the market?

We utilize the most appropriate data collection technique in each situation, in order to produce an accurate, reliable network planning model in each market.

In some markets, we continue to send our own people into the field to conduct on-site surveys. In other markets, we work with third parties.

How has new science improved Kalibrate’s network planning capability?

Refreshing the science means the software’s algorithms have become more flexible, current, and in line with market needs. Benefits include: reduced model-build time, better modeling for convenience retail, and the inclusion of client data.
