What is the Plaace Fit score?
The Plaace Fit score is an assessment of how good an area fits for a retail store or restaurant concept, and it’s based on characteristics like demographics, movement patterns and the competitive situation.
The Plaace Fit score is created to add an extra data-driven dimension to the process of assessing new expansion areas, and should be used together with domain knowledge and other data insights in the Plaace platform.
More info coming soon on how we use advanced data analysis and machine learning to create a recommendation model.
