🌟 Rename areas in your Dashboard

We see customers often have their own internal names for areas, based on current locations, or project names. So we’ve introduced renaming of areas to make it easier to tell a story with Plaace insights in a way that is easy for your audience to understand.

This is how you do it:

  • In a dashboard, click on the three dots of a chart and pick Edit

Nov 3, 2023

New features

The smaller grids provide more accurate movement insights for custom areas. This will automatically update for any areas saved as favourites or included in dashboards.

image

🌟 5-20 min visits added to Movement insights

The Movement pattern chart now has the option to show 5-20min visits (not just 20min+ visits that was available before). For users with daily access, this insight is also available per day, and not just as a daily average per quarter.

image

🌟 Visitors’ origin available at district level

Visitors origin is now available at several levels (County, Municipality, District, Norwegian Grunnkrets) in addition to just Norwegian Grunnkrets that we had previously. Default view is now set to County.

image

🌟 Add LIVE state to you charts

When using Dashboards for tracking performance at different locations, it’s often relevant to track from a point in time, and until the last available date, this is now possible with the Live option.

  • Select a date range for your chart + Live and then you get the data until the latest available date in your dashboard. The selected chart will be updated automatically.
  • If you want to turn it off to keep a fixed date range, you can do that from the editor mode in your dashboard

Grid sizes from Telia have been reduced by 75%, and we’re live with the update in both Norway and Sweden, enabling more precise data analysis and improved decision-making.

This update allows you to get visits for smaller areas than before. The Telia grids are now on average 1/4 of the size that were available before.

🌟 Save several versions of a chart in your Dashboard

As you build a dashboard, it can make sense to use the same chart again, but with different filters, in order to tell the story you want. This is now possible! Just modify the filters and add to the dashboard again.

image
💡
When you add a chart, the small counter next to the dashboard name indicates how many versions of a chart are already saved to the dashboard.

Improvements and bug fixes

When searching for places in the map, a pin drops down to mark the spot. This is particularly helpful when you want to draw a custom area around this point

image

🐞 A Cancel button appears instead of a Confirm button in the Compare feature

Compare still works, but users have to click a button saying Cancel instead of Confirm, in order to see the charts in Compare mode. We are working on an improvement for this.

🐞 Delays on daily movement data for some days

We’ve had some issues with the access and transfer of daily movement data from Telia, resulting in delay for some individual dates. The data has been backfilled.

🐞 Issues with sign-up and login

Q1 2023
Feb 22, 2023

New features

🌟 Areas based on Walk, Drive or Cycle time

Make custom areas based on Walk, Drive or Cycle time from any point in Norway and get corresponding insights. From any map:

  1. Click Draw, select Walk/Drive time and a box opens with settings
  2. Click on the point in map you want as the center
    • Adjust the time traveled and the travel type in the box
  3. Click on the light blue area to get the area tooltip that takes you to the insights with demographics, foot traffic, card spending and competitive situation
image
💡
To move the area, either drag the center of the area or click again in the map for a new centre point

🌟 Indexed view of several regions or several spending categories

Makes it really quick and easy to see growth trends of an area against the municipality or country, and the same across spending categories.

  1. Select time period and categories on top of page, this serves as your baseline
  2. The default view is an Area benchmark, comparing with municipality and country for the selected time period and categories
  3. Switch to Category benchmark and select which spending categories to compare with
  4. You can also turn off the benchmark

Category benchmark: Select up to 3 additional categories to plot in the chart together with the sum of categories selected on top of the page (referred to as “Global selected” in chart legend)

💡
An indexed view is especially good when numbers are of different sizes, like spending in a city centre vs municipality, or in a retail category like clothing stores vs grocery stores. It shows the start date as 100 for all lines so they are comparable, and then the growth trend can be compared by seeing if the lines are higher or lower than 100

Improvements and bug fixes

🎨 Easier to compare spending categories

When looking at selected spending categories in compare mode, you can now switch between the areas without resetting your category selection

🎨 Save city centres as favourites or compare with other areas

Use the heart icon to save the area to a favourite list. Click Compare areas from area profile.

image

🎨 Loading spinner for charts

While waiting for data to load in the charts, we displayed a “no data” message. This was a bit misleading since the data was actually on it’s way! Now you get a loading spinner instead. We strive to make the product fast to use, so hopefully you won’t spend that much time hanging out with the loading spinner

image

🎨 Updated URLs to custom areas

If you have custom areas saved as favourites, it will work seamlessly even if the URLs have changed. If you experience any issues with links saved outside of the platform, let us know and we can help!

Improvements and bug fixes

🎨 Using Kvarud numbers as source for Mall turnover

We’ve made an improvement to total Mall turnover. It used to be the sum of the retail stores in the mall, but we now use the same numbers as the Kvarud report for total Mall turnover (ex. vat) when available. This is reflected with a colour indicator next to numbers and in tooltips for charts

  • Actuals (green): Kvarud numbers (ex. vat), reported via Prognosesenteret
  • Estimated (yellow): estimate by Prognosesenteret (ex.vat), sum of estimated turnover per retail concept located in the mall

Improvements and bug fixes

🎨 No lower size limit to custom drawn areas

There was a lower limit of radius = 50m for custom drawn circles, this has been removed. When drawing small areas, be aware of data source areas for spending and movement, and that demographics will be rough estimates.

For a while, the only way to login or signup was to actually click on the login button, but now interacting with more parts of the platform will also prompt the login window

image

🐞 Dropdown filters in Find spaces and Find tenants made the page reload

When users tried to filter on elements in a dropdown, like concept type or space features, it caused the page to reload instead of allowing the user to filter. This is fixed now

Improvements and bug fixes

🎨 Most companies now have updated 2021 data

The company data and competitive situation in the platform gets updated weekly as companies officially report financial numbers. Now that most companies have finished 2021 reporting, charts and tables have been set to show 2021 numbers as default.

🎨 Downloads for Competitive situation are now pivot friendly and includes data accuracy

As requested by some of our frequent users of the download functionality, the downloads now includes all the category levels, as well as the accuracy indicator of each number. You can read more about the accuracy indicators on our info pages (in Norwegian).

The issue was discovered on Oct 17th and was fixed by Oct 21st.

🐞 The key stats in free version of Movement were not loading for a while

🐞 There was a double Compare button: We know you’ve been eager to start comparing, but agree that one button is enough to get the job done 🐞 A user experienced issues signing up: We had a hick-up for a few minutes when going live with our latest features, this was quickly caught thanks to a user reporting it to us via chat, and we fixed it right away

Improvements and bug fixes

🎨 See area size when drawing a custom area

We now display either the radius or the total sqm of the custom area you draw. We’ve removed any restrictions on minimum size of a custom area, but there is a max size of ~28 km2. Let us know if you are missing a particular area

image

🎨 Dynamic y-axis to better show Concept mix in Compare mode

image

🐞 If a spending category was empty, it would default to show Norway numbers instead of 0

In some areas, there might not be enough card transactions in a time period for BankAxept to share the spending data, e.g. spending in Bars in a certain area. It was not very clear in the charts that the numbers displayed were suddenly for Norway instead of the selected region, and this has been updated to just show “No available data” instead

🐞 Download button for charts disappeared

When we introduced Compare, the download buttons for charts temporarily disappeared and sometimes it showed double. It’s now back again in normal mode

Improvements and bug fixes

🎨 Possible to unselect Property when creating or editing Spaces

🎨 User gets a confirmation message when requesting an upgrade

Jul 28, 2022

The team has enjoyed a bit of vacation lately. Today’s update is mostly about improvements, but stay tuned for the launch of some cool, new features in the coming weeks ☀️

image

New features

🌟 Use “new development” for projects or properties under construction

This has been a request from many of our property customers that want to showcase projects they are planning or currently developing, to increase transparency of what type of retail spaces will be coming on the market. The property type can be selected when you edit a property profile, or create a new one.

Improvements and bug fixes

🎨 Go to hubs or boroughs from map in concept profiles

Have you ever wanted to explore some of the areas your own or another concept is located in? Now you have hubs and boroughs showing in the concept profile map, and clicking on an area will automatically open it in a new browser tab

image

🎨 Much quicker loading of data tabs within an area profile

Have you noticed? The developers have introduced some really awesome improvements, and it’s now much smoother to switch between the data tabs like competitive situation and spending.

🎨 Property is automatically selected if creating a new space from property profile or portfolio overview

image

🎨 Current tenants in Property profiles sorted by highest turnover

🎨 Better quality of cropped pictures

🎨 Improved map visualisations of areas

We have done a major upgrade of how we show areas. The most noticeable thing might be that areas like Ålesund, which is bordering on water, had some funny looking area borders before. This is now fixed, along with several other things that just improves the feeling of using Plaace.

🎨 Ongoing improvements of area profiles

For our most frequent users you’ll notice that there have been some gradual changes to the area profiles in the last weeks. This is based on feedback and user testing and the goal is to improve the overall experience. Expect more changes in the coming weeks and let us know what you think!

🎨 Tweaks to Similar areas

Centres map on selected area, tooltip closes when starting to search for a new area and long area names are shortened in the list view

🎨 More focus on picking role in sign-up flow

More focus in sign-up flow on which role a new user represents, making it clearer from the start what Plaace can do for you

  • Quickly identify areas in Norway that are similar to your top performing locations
  • Compare movement patterns, competitive situation or demographics for many areas
  • Save areas you want to deep-dive into for more insights
image

Improvements and bug fixes

🎨 New data partner for spending data is “BankAxept”

It’s the same data as before, but Vipps and BankAxept have de-merged and the branding has changed again from “Vipps” and back to “BankAxept”. With this change, we’ve also worked with BankAxept to update our technical integration. This work is now finished. The biggest change is that some historic data has been updated to include more locations.

🐞 Mobile login with Microsoft and Google from some pages

We had an issue where signup and login from other urls than the main signup or login page didn’t work. This has now been improved

🐞 Some issues with list of tenants looking to expand in an area

For a while, this list were showing tenants with a current location in the area, instead of tenants looking to expand to the area. This is now fixed!

🐞 Dependency to translation service

There was an incident on Jun 28, where the platform was not available to end users for ~30min. This was due to a dependency on a third-party tool and downtime on their side. It was quickly fixed, and we’ve improved our setup so similar issues won’t affect our platform in the future.

Jun 10, 2022

New features

🌟 Plaace Fit score: check how well an area fits your concept

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 fit score works as an extra data-driven input when assessing new expansion areas.

image

The beta version of Plaace Fit score is available to a few selected customers with a paid tenant subscription. Reach out to us to upgrade or learn more.

🌟 Save custom drawn areas directly to your concept profile

You can now also save custom drawn areas as areas of interest directly on your concept profile

Improvements and bug fixes

🎨 Current tenants in Mall profiles are now sorted by highest turnover

image

🐞 Average revenue per concept location was not showing for a period

🐞 The Market gap chart wasn’t available for a few areas

May 25, 2022

New features

🌟 Save an area directly to your concept profile

While exploring hubs or custom drawn areas you can now save them as an area of interest that is visible on your concept profile. These expansion areas of interest are available to property managers and are key in terms of being contacted by property managers, and possibly finding a match even before spaces are listed on the market

image

🌟 Spaces that are “available soon” also listed in area profiles

For tenants exploring areas, we display which spaces are for rent. Now we also include spaces that will be available for rent soon

image

Improvements and bug fixes

🎨 Navigate to areas from visitors’ origin map

We’re getting a lot of positive feedback on the visitors’ origin map, now it will also be possible to go to any of the origin areas and look at e.g. the demography

image

🎨 Clicking on a concept location in table will open location tooltip in map

This makes it easier to quickly find the exact location when the concept has many locations in the same area

image

🎨 Better guiding when adding photos to space profiles

There was a limit of uploading 10 photos at a time, and not good enough guiding for the user when exceeding the max photo size or number of photos. It’s now possible to upload more photos at once, and we’ll let you know if one of your pictures is too large. We also show a loading icon while we upload all the photos. This will soon be implemented for property and concept profiles too.

🎨 Displaying space size and floor when added by tenants

For concepts, it’s possible to add space size and floor to both existing locations and new locations

🐞 It wasn’t possible to save new expansion areas for collaborators

With the new improvements to this whole feature, we have also resolved any related bugs. Let us know if we can help to add expansion areas you are interested in

🐞 If an area was very small, some insights didn’t display correctly

🐞 Adding new concept locations was unavailable for a few hours

With this bug fix, we have also improved some of the logic and performance of the concept locations, enabling more functionality in the future as well

May 6, 2022

New features

🌟 Key insights on all space profiles

Each space profile made with Plaace automatically gets a summary of the area it’s located in, regardless of whether the space is for rent or off-market.

The area summary will be visible to anyone with the link, which can be shared externally in emails or via e.g. Facebook and Linkedin. When the viewer logs in they can see contact info and more insights about the space and area.

image

🌟 Key insights on all area profiles

All area profiles now have a summary of key insights, available even before creating a Plaace user. This makes it easier to share areas you are interested in with different stakeholders. Some areas in Norway are also promoted on the Plaace homepage

image

🌟 Visitors´ origin extended to top 50 areas

We launched the top 10 areas where visitors live or work a few weeks back and the customer feedback has been great! This has now been extended to top 50 areas, which gives an even better view of the potential customer base.

image

🌟 Area profiles on mobile

The area profiles with charts and tables for competitive situation, spending, movement and demographics are now also available on mobile

image

🌟 See where tenants want to expand to, also from the area profile

For property managers, the area profiles gives a list of tenants that are interested in this area as a possible site expansion. Now it’s also possible to see the exact area drawn by the concept in the map. This feature is available with a paid subscription

image

Improvements and bug fixes

🎨 The x to close tooltips was not completely centered

Not a critical bug, but several of you noticed. Now that it’s fixed, you can focus your attention on more juicy insights!

image

🐞 The button to add new expansion areas was missing for a while

Get in touch if you want help with adding or editing areas you are considering as part of your expansion strategy

image

🐞 Outline of selected areas was not visible in area profile map

🐞 Area profile would reset to summary tab when going to a new area

🐞 It was not possible to edit text format in space description

🐞 For a brief period, was not possible to save hubs as favourites

🐞 BankAxept data was not updated daily on a few instances

This has been fixed quickly when reported by users, and we are also working with the data partner to increase stability with a larger update. In the meantime we appreciate feedback from our users if it should happen again.

Apr 27, 2022

New features

🌟 All the Plaace commercial hubs have now gotten names!

We have down some automagic work and given names to all the commercial hubs. If you have suggestion for better names in a hub close to your heart, please send a suggestion our way via the chat or the💡 when you’re logged in

image

🌟 Download data from charts and tables on concept and property profiles

We introduced download for charts in area profiles last month, and now you can also find the download button for charts and tables on concept and property profiles.

image

🌟 Charts and tables on concept and property profiles available in mobile version

We’re gradually going through our product and making sure it also works well in the mobile browser. Now we’ve finished concept and property profiles. Next up are the area profile insights!

image

🌟 Movement data for Q1 2022

Movement data for first quarter of 2022 has been added to all charts and areas

image

🌟 Historical revenue in mall profiles

Historical concept turnover for all tenants of a mall, split by category of concepts.

image

Improvements and bug fixes

🎨 More relevant insights for new malls

If a mall didn’t exist yet in 2020, some of the key insights showed as empty. Now we have a dynamic rule that displays the most relevant year per mall, e.g. at Løren Torg

🐞 For some spending charts, the data had not been updated since April 10

This was due to some area definitions changing, and it ended up affecting all areas. We’ve made the update smarter, the daily update is back on track again and the missing days have been added

🐞 Previously sketched area kept reappearing when switching to other area types

This was quite annoying, so we fixed it!

🐞 Map was sometimes stuck in Oslo

When looking at areas elsewhere in Norway, the maps would sometimes show in Oslo instead of the selected area. This should now be fixed!

🐞 Wasn’t possible to add some concepts to favourite lists directly from the profile

You can make favourite list of anything in the platform, whether potential spaces, interesting concepts or areas. This functionality was missing from some concept profiles, and it’s been fixed

🐞 It was sometimes not possible to change year in locations table for unclaimed concepts

Apr 11, 2022

New features

🌟 Plaace areas profiles available to everyone

Now it’s possible to explore the areas without creating a user first, either directly from a google search, the Plaace homepage, or if someone shares the link to an area. Stay tuned as we’ll soon introduce some more area insights for everyone!

image

Improvements and bug fixes

🐞 Key insights on properties not available to users on paid plan

We had an issue where only collaborators on a property could see key insights like total turnover and number of visits to neighbouring area, this is now fixed and available to all users with paid subscription

🐞 Some links between properties and spaces were outdated

This is now working, and we’ve also implemented a fix to avoid similar issues in the future.

Q1 2022
Mar 28, 2022

New features

🌟 Where visitors live or work

We are really excited to introduce a new insights based on the Telia movement data. For any area in Norway, you can see top 10 home areas of people visiting an area, also known as the catchment area. It's based on actual movement data, and not just theoretical travel time by walking or driving.

image

This is available to users on the paid plan, reach out to contact@plaace.co if you’d like a demo, or would like to upgrade your subscription directly.

🌟 Download data from all the charts

We introduced download for Monthly spending earlier this month, and now it’s also available for all charts and tables in area profiles like spending, movement, competitive situation and neighbourhood. This is available to users on the paid plan.

image

🌟 Data available for more granular areas

The smallest available statistical units in Norway, the “grunnkrets” (base areas) tend to be smaller in more populated areas, which gives a more granular view of data and insights. They are used in the new movement chart to display where visitors live or work, and they’re also available in the boroughs view

image

Improvements and bug fixes

🎨 The list of spaces is now sorted by last created on top

The sorting by creation date in “Find spaces” disappeared for a while, but has now been re-introduced. Based on feedback from users, “Find spaces” is now automatically filtered to only show spaces that are available “For rent” or “Available soon”. It’s still possible to change the filter to see occupied spaces.

🎨 More areas are now available with spending data

For areas that have changed municipality definition over the years, like Asker, we did not manage to display spending data, and were instead just showing data for Norway. This is now being handled dynamically over time for all types of areas

🎨 Some desktop features looked a bit weird for brief periods of time

As we’ve worked on making some features more mobile friendly, it has on a few occasions messed up the layout on desktop. We are continuously improving both desktop and mobile

🐞 Some charts and tables had old “updated” dates

The data and content itself was up to date, but the last updated function did not work correctly, and showed e.g. “Updated: April 1, 2001". This has now been fixed

🐞 Space profiles were unavailable for a brief period

This was reported by a user and we immediately fixed it

🐞 Some charts showed 2022 instead of 2021 in the timeline

🐞 Bug in first version of download data from charts

When we launched download of data from charts, there was a mix in order of magnitude of some numbers in a few of the charts. This was quickly corrected and affected users were notified directly.

Mar 11, 2022

New features

🌟 Download data from Monthly spending chart

For users on the paid plan, it’s now possible to download data from the Monthly spending chart, either as .xlsx or .csv. Let us know what you think, and while you try it out, we’ll also add this functionality to all the other charts and tables.

image

Improvements and bug fixes

🎨 A part of the pictures didn’t show in the tooltips

Now it’s easier to scroll through the pictures directly from the maps

image

🎨 Spacing for descriptions

There were some issues with making paragraphs in the descriptions, all fixed now!

image

🐞 For a while, it wasn’t possible to scroll down and use all the filters when looking for spaces

🐞 When searching for an area, the search box was behind the buttons

Mar 4, 2022

New features

🌟 Daily card transactions for Fredrikstad city centre

In collaboration with Fredrikstad Næringsforening, we’ve defined a city centre for Fredrikstad with daily updated card transaction data. We will be defining city centres in other large cities as well, stay tuned!

🌟 More of the Plaace platform is now mobile friendly 🧡

image

🌟 Property profiles with more info

Yearly revenue, the yearly split in revenue between chains and independent concepts, and average daily visits to the area. More insights to come, we are really excited about soon launching a view of where visitors are travelling from!

🌟 Add any type of profile to your favourite lists

Now it’s also possible to add all the auto-generated profiles in the Plaace platform, even if the profile has not been actively claimed and updated by the business owner yet.

🌟 Embed a profile on your webpage

Here’s an example of using the embed functionality on Notion. It will display the public version of a profile, but the user has to sign up to see contact information and more details.

🎨 Vulkan added as a mall

Vulkan has been added as a mall. Let us know if you miss some malls in the Plaace platform

image

Jan 28, 2022

New features

🌟 Filters and map zoom stays the same for Area Insights

As you explore different areas, and navigate between pages, we will now remember the map setting and other filters you’ve turned on during your visit. This was based on feedback from several of our frequent users, and should make exploring much smoother!

image

🌟 Add locations to your profile already when you sign them

Add a new location to the concept profile, including signing month and tentative opening month. This helps you better showcase the status of your expansion plans and keep track of your progress.

🌟 Add space size (m2) to your locations

Keep track of the space size of each of your locations. This also showcases to property managers what your current portfolio looks like.

🌟 Split of chains vs. independent concepts in malls

How many chains vs. independent concepts are present in a mall can indicate what type of profile and crowd the mall is addressing. That’s why we’ve included this chart not only on area profiles, but also directly on the mall profiles.

image

Improvements and bug fixes

🎨 Total number of spaces is now shown in map

To make the performance as good as possible, we sometimes limit the number of items we show at once in the map. This was also applied to the cluster of spaces (the big orange circles), but unfortunately made it look like we had less spaces available in each city. This has now been changed to reflect all spaces.

image

🎨 For tenants on free plan, spaces will now also show in the map

In an area profile, we always show the spaces for rent, but they were not reflected in the map. This is now available to all tenants

image

🎨 Possible to change language while creating a new profile

Now it’s possible to change the language setting while you’re editing something, like creating a new space or concept. Before, this would reset the page and you would have to start over 😅

🎨 Search for facilities is no longer Case sensitive

If you searched for a facility with Capital letter, it wouldn’t show up as an alternative in the search result, but this is now fixed

🐞 Going into profiles from table only worked with cmd+click

Now, it will also work if you just click on a name in the table

🐞 Total population was not visible for a while

image

🐞 It was not possible to add new locations to concept profiles

This has been fixed, and we’ve added some new improvements as well!

Jan 14, 2022

Happy new year from team Plaace, we look forward to an exciting year!

image

New features

🌟 Spaces for rent in the largest Norwegian cities

Several customers have already added available spaces in places outside of Oslo, but now we have good coverage in Bergen, Trondheim and Stavanger and expect to see more activity from users in those regions.

🌟 Post a link to your space or concept and get name and picture included

When you post a link to your space or concept on certain places like Linkedin or Facebook it will automatically add the name and main picture. For some places, like Slack, it will also add part of the description.

image

image

🌟 Historic spending data Trondheim and Bergen boroughs

We recently introduced spending data for boroughs in Trondheim and Bergen, and this now includes historic data from January 2019. Can you spot how the covid restrictions impacted the number of card transactions in Trondheim city centre?

image

🌟 Movement data for Q4 2021 is available

The average visits for Q4 2021, and 2021 as a whole year are now available for users on the paid subscription.

Improvements and bug fixes

Tenant profiles

🎨 When entering a profile, it was not possible to use back button in browser, this has now been fixed

🎨 The default map view has been adjusted to Norway instead of Oslo

🎨 Click on a concept location in table and see geographical placement in map, the map also zooms into the specific location

🎨 The shortcut links in the summary section now correctly links to the relevant parts of the tenant profile

🎨 Grouped space status and availability

Both when creating and editing a space, we’ve moved the fields “space status” and “availability” next to each other and updated the date picker.

🎨 Space size is now possible up to 3000 m2

Both when creating a space, but also when searching for a space, we now allow space sizes up to 3000 m2.

🐞 Add company name to spaces and properties

This part was not working correctly, now it’s possible to add both company name and organisation number

🐞 Some users have experienced issues when adding a collaborator or changing contact info

🐞 Some of area profiles and location tables were linked to the year

We had a small hick-up as the year turned to 2022, and some parts of the platform were unavailable for a short time. It’s all fixed now!

image

New features

🌟 Share profiles with people who are not Plaace users

You can now copy the url to your space or concept and share with others in emails, linkedin, facebook, etc. Others can see a preview of the profiles without having a Plaace account.

If you experience a lot of incoming requests about your space or concept, it can be good practice to first have them take a look at your Plaace profile, with the up-to-date details of what you’re looking for, and also ask them to make a Plaace profile describing what they are offering.

With a part of the profiles being open to the public, it lowers the threshold for more people to explore and understand what the market looks like. In order to see contact info and more details about your space or concept, they still have to create a user and log in.

image

🌟 Property managers now have access to see all active tenants on the platform, and explore their concept profiles

Knowing that some spaces are kept off-market, it’s very valuable for tenants to communicate that they are actively expanding and looking for new spaces. At the same time as we are making a version of all profiles public, we’ve also updated the access for property managers on the free plan so they can see all tenants.

image

🌟 Boroughs and heatmaps available in Trondheim and Bergen

We now have boroughs for Trondheim and Bergen, in addition to Oslo. This makes it possible to show certain info as heatmaps, e.g. age, population and income distribution. The boroughs and heatmaps are in addition to the smaller commercial hubs available all over Norway. By clicking into any of the areas, you can see more info, like neighbourhood, spending, competitive situation, etc.

image

Improvements and bug fixes

🎨 Search for concepts and navigate to profiles also on free plan

One of the easiest ways to find a concept profile in the platform is to use the search or category drill down of concept composition in area profiles. This has only been available on the paid plan, but we've now made part of the info available and searchable for all users

image

🎨 We added a tooltip to better show the split of categories in a mall

image

Login and Microsoft account

Regardless of where a space is located, it will show on the profile if it's close to a commercial hub, and viewers can click to learn more about the area.

🐞 Growth percentages were sometimes very high

We had a bug in the way we calculated growth percentages, and it could show as a very high number if e.g. it was the first year with revenue for a tenant.

Nov 5, 2021

We've provided some more details to the movement charts and you now have the ability to drill down into movement by type at home, at work or visiting.

Oct 12, 2021

New features

🌟 Claim a concept

Earlier this fall, we launched a really cool feature that auto-generates concept profiles with revenue information for some of the largest chains in Norway. Now it's possible to claim one of these profiles if you own it, and add custom info like pictures, contact info, expansion plans or other details. Go to an area and see if your company has a profile, and claim it now!

image

🌟 Updated with 2020 data from Prognosesenteret

Financial reports are in for many of the concepts, and this is now reflected in the platform. In general, many numbers have changed from red and yellow (needs validation or estimates) to green (based on actual reported numbers).

🌟 Ability to change year for revenue data on concept profiles

We recently launched profiles for the largest chains in Norway, with info about revenue and number of employees per location, and the numbers were based on 2020 financial year. Now, it's possible to change the year for the locations table and see the detailed info for previous years as well.

🌟 Spaces for rent in each area

When exploring any area in Norway, tenants will now see a list of available spaces in that specific area. This works for custom drawn areas, as well as commercial hubs or boroughs.

image

🐞 Not possible to access favourited items

Did you know that you can always save a space, concept or area in different lists and share with colleagues or partners? Accessing your lists was temporarily unavailable, but this is now back!

image

🐞 Size filter was not working

Filtering spaces by size did not work for a while, this is now fixed!

We've made it much easier to stay on the map and get a quick glance at many different things, check out the cool new design that highlights key information of each space or concept, and even lets you navigate through the pictures. For users on the paid version, each concept pin will also show the revenue information and number of employees.

image

Improvements and bug fixes

🎨 Much better performance

Our development team has been doing a major improvement of the speed in the platform. One of my favourite improvements is the search function among the concepts with the highest revenue in an area, and going in and explore more info about a specific concept

image

🐞 We couldn't always open our newly launched concept profiles with revenue info

Earlier in August, we launched a really cool feature that auto-generates concept profiles with revenue information for some of the largest chains in Norway. We were a bit quick to launch, and have since been working to smooth out some of the issues

Aug 26, 2021

New features

We're always working to make the Plaace platform even better to use, this time we've worked to make the use of maps faster!

When zooming in or moving around in the map, the spaces in the map will update to show the relevant results. This sometimes led a few spaces to not be included, this is now fixed!

We've added an improvement that lets you stay on the selected data tab when navigating between areas. This makes it easier to quickly compare the same analysis for different areas, whether it's the summary, competitive situation, spending or demography.

image

🎨 Turn off areas

Sometimes you just want a cleaner work area, so we've made it possible to remove the hubs or boroughs from the map, in combination with the other filters like spaces and concepts.

image

🐞 Estimate tags for Neighbours had the wrong colour The colour was green even though the tag said "Estimate", this is now yellow like it was intended

When you zoom in to an area, the list of spaces will adapt, so it only shows the relevant ones for the area you're looking at.

image

Improvements and bug fixes

🎨 Option to filter on type of concept among the 50.000+ concepts available on Plaace

In Area Insights, you can see all concepts in Norway. It's now possible to filter and just show one concept type, e.g. Retail. The map shows more results as you zoom in or move to other areas.

image

🎨 Boom, zoom!

When entering a specific area, the map is now more zoomed in to focus on the selected area. And when you search for a street or place, the map will zoom all the way in, not just show the whole city.

🐞 Norwegian version was gone for a little while

Our Norwegian version of the Plaace platform was not available for a period, this is now fixed. Velkommen tilbake!

🐞 Words got split in two

When describing your concepts and spaces, words at the end of the line got split in two. It made things a bit difficult to read, so this will no longer happen.

🐞 Pin tooltip kept reappearing

Sometimes, a tooltip with a space or concept profile would keep reappearing in the map as you moved around, this is now fixed!

If you've made a typo, you can now edit the address for your space

April 27, 2021

New features

🌟 New list of facilities

After user testing with property managers and tenants, we've done a complete upgrade of the list of facilities a space has to offer, and what a concept needs for their location. We've also removed many things that weren't in use. Let us know if you're missing something!

image

🌟 Spice up that concept or space description

We do like a short and crisp text, but realise that sometimes you just need some bullets or bold text to communicate clearly, so check out our new formatting options

Improvements and bug fixes

🎨 A space can be regulated as more than one thing

Is your space regulated as both a shop and an office? Now you can select more than one option

🎨 Remove a pdf

New features

🌟 Share lists of favourites with others

Collect your favourite spaces, concepts or areas in different lists, and share them with others to either view or edit the lists together with you. This is particularly useful for collaborating within a team, together with a broker or others outside your company.

image

🌟 Automatically add current locations to a concept

When you create a new concept, you can automatically add any current locations if you've entered the Norwegian company organization number. If you have many existing locations, this will save significant time! You can always edit the name of each location later, and add or remove locations.

image

🌟 "Areas to expand" and "concept presentation" only visible to property managers

As a concept owner, some of the info you add to your profile, will only be visible to property managers on a paid plan. This applies to the "Presentation" section, where you can add a pdf, and areas you are interested in for new locations. In user testing, we've heard the willingness to share this info with property managers, but several have asked whether it needs to be visible to other concept owners. Let us know what you think!

image

Improvements and bug fixes

🎨 New spaces are now shown at the top of the list

Both concept owners and property managers want high visibility of new spaces added to the Plaace platform, so they are now shown first. Use the filters to find the most relevant spaces for you.

image

🎨 Added option "to be discussed" for rent type and willingness to change space

Several property managers and brokers have mentioned that they often decide on rent type and potential changes to the space in dialogue with new tenants. One outcome can also be a mix of fixed rent and a percentage of revenue. That's why we've added the option "to be discussed".

image

🐞 It was only possible to add one floor for spaces

For a while, it was not possible to mark multiple floors for a space, this is now fixed

image

Added key info to area name, and several improvements to concept chart and map

🎨 When you explore the areas, you can hover over the different areas to see key info before selecting an area with more details

🐞 When we introduced a more granular grouping of concepts, some of the bars ended up with overlapping descriptions. This is now fixed!

🎨 We've now made it possible to filter away locations in the map down to the last category

🐞 If more concepts were located at the same address, only one of them would show in the map. Now, the pin will split into several pins if there are multiple locations at the same address

image

🐞 Added missing Norwegian translations

We add new features and fixes as quickly as possible, but sometimes this means translations are lagging a bit behind, we've now made a bigger review of the Norwegian translations, let us know if you miss something or have suggestions for better translations!

To make sure you get the most out of Plaace, we are now introducing roles: are you a property manager or a concept owner? Most existing users have gotten a role assigned to them automatically. If not, you are asked to pick a role the next time you log in. Depending on the role you choose, we will adapt some of the features to best suit your needs.

We are excited to introduce free plans for both property managers and concept owners. Add as many spaces and concepts as needed and explore areas for free. Tenants also get access to all spaces that are available for rent.

image

Improvements

🎨 Overview

We've cleaned up the overview page. Depending on your role, either spaces or concepts are in focus. Spaces or concepts that you have created, or been invited to edit, are listed here. We are highlighting some key info, status, and the collaborators that have access. Some user might notice that we've removed property profiles for now, but they will return in the future in a new and improved form.

image

🎨 Move the map to show where a new location is added

Many of you are actively using the locations overview to manage your location strategy. We got a user request to move the map view to show where a new pin was placed when adding a new location, and that is now live!

Floorpan can be uploaded as pdf file and displayed directly on the profile. Pictures of the space are bigger in size, crucial details like space size or availability are grouped together. Several people from the team can edit the profile, and contact info can be updated to any of the collaborators. Logo of property company can also be added, to increase brand value across the portfolio.

image

🌟 New concept profile

We are happy to announce the new concept profile! Each section can be easily edited and the profile has gotten a make-over. Each profile has a contact card in colours matching the concept type, and we've included a company logo, organisation number and links to your social media profiles. Display a pdf presentation with more details about your concept directly on the profile, and introduce your team to potential partners. The section with key financial info has been temporarily removed and will be re-introduced later in a new and improved shape.

image

🌟 New data for concepts in Oslo

We have launched an improved dataset of all concepts and their locations in Oslo. This means we've also introduced a new and more granular grouping of concepts, allowing you to drill down to e.g. coffee shops in a certain area. A similar overview of Norway will follow soon!

🌟 Descriptions for areas

We have added a Plaace summary of each area in Oslo, to make it easier to learn about new areas.

Since our target market is Norway right now, we have set the default language to Norwegian. If you prefer the English version, you can switch back to it at the bottom of the page.

image

🐞 Showing images in the list of concepts and spaces

For some profiles, we had a bug where pictures would not always show in the lists of concepts and profile. Now the main picture that you upload for your space or concept profile, will also be visible in miniature version in the list of concepts and spaces.

image
March 2, 2021

New features

🌟 Invite collaborators to edit your space or concept

Now you can add more people to edit your space or concept together with you. Invite existing or new users directly from the space or concept profile, and they'll receive an email to join. You can also add collaborators to concepts from the overview menu.

image

🌟 Full overview of all concepts, with ability to drill down into a specific concept type

Now it's much much easier to analyse concept categories on the map. Just zoom in and zoom out, nothing more. Colour of the pin shows the type of concept and the map adjusts to only show the concepts belonging to a selected category.

image

Improvements

🎨 Improvements on concept composition charts with new colours

We have made a dozen improvements on concept composition like showing the details of a category when hovering, and listing out the number and percentage of concepts in the chart. When drilling down into a category, we list out what you've selected, and you can easily navigate back to any of the previous levels. Happy exploring!

image

🎨 Improved layout of concept cards

To show you the most relevant pieces of information we removed "Active" and "More" buttons, added the concept type icon and improved the steps for adding a profile to a list of favourites.

image

🎨 Change language on sign-up page

We have added a footer at the bottom of the sign-up and login pages. It will give you the option to change between English and Norwegian language.

We know that many of you have your eyes set on specific areas for your next location(s). Now it's easy to map out several areas of interest on the platform, alongside your existing locations. Just write the area or street name and then set the radius most suited to your area of interest. As you go through the process of identifying an area and explore available spaces, you can cast the net wider or narrower based on your insights.

🌟 Explore concepts and where they are looking to expand

See what areas a concept is interested in. Quickly navigate between different concepts in the search results.

We've simplified the menu navigation so you can always access and explore areas, spaces and concepts directly in the top menu. More improvements to come in the future!

🎨 Quicker access to search

We've given the search field a more prominent place on each page, so searching a specific area, space, or concept is instantly available. Just write and search. The search filters are also more accessible now.

With new improvements it is more convenient to show the picture of your space or concept in a way you would like to see it. Upload many images at one time, edit picture from original one, and add pictures up to 20 MB each.
