Radius is a Location Intelligence provider that creates commercial growth strategies by identifying the demographics; shared values; likes & interests and consumption patterns of individuals in a defined area. Radius has brought social science and the latest advancements in data science together to explain the social DNAs of local communities and reflect this on businesses.
This technology becomes available to the Commercial Real Estate value chain in three main products. Radius Audit; Growth and Engagement services that provide necessary insights for putting consumers in the core of expansion, sales, marketing or merchandising strategies. Radius’ primary goal is to support companies in their digital transformation efforts in the scope of Retail 4.0.

Generation of excessive amounts of data and changes in consumer behaviours and preferences have urged the commercial real estate market to adapt to a more dynamic nature. This new approach requires advanced methodologies for collecting and processing data and delivering actionable insights. These methodologies make the creation of accurate data-driven commercial strategies possible. Also, understanding customer expectations and improving the offerings accordingly have become the main differentiator in the market. Consumers express frustration when their experience is not personal or when brands don’t empower shared values. Therefore, all the participants in the commercial real estate value chain need to understand consumers and have a holistic and granular view of their target customers.
The retailers who have failed to grasp the requirements of this new approach have led the ‘Retail Apocalypse’ take over, a global epidemic in commercial real estate. In the United Kingdom in average 16 stores are closing on the high street every day, and the stats are not any better in Europe or the USA.
