DIGITAL POSTCODE BOUNDARY MAPS AS THE BASIS FOR YOUR DATA

Worldwide postal areas are geographic boundaries that define the geographic area for each postcode. Digital Postcode boundaries help you to display and analyze spatial areas on a map.

They can easily be matched and attributed with company internal data (e.g. sales figures, sales areas) or SOCIODEMOGRAPHIC DATA and PURCHASING POWER data from MB-International.

VAST VARIETY OF USES IN MANY ASPECTS OF BUSINESS APPLICATIONS

Our area boundaries provide you with a consistent basis for visualizing your data for various tasks and applications, such as

  • Sales planning
  • Sales controlling
  • Site planning
  • Expansion planning
  • Branch network planning
  • Customer visualization
  • Predictive analytics
  • Insurance risk management
  • Thematic mapping
  • Social Media Marketing
  • Postcode look-up tables
  • Internet applications
  • Geocoding and Reverse Geocoding

This enables companies to:

  • Quantify regional sales opportunities / market potentials
  • Focus on marketing activities locally
  • Formulate realistic and quantified objectives
  • Identify unused market potential
  • Restructure and optimize market and sales areas
  • Develop expansion strategies
  • Evaluate areas for strengths and weaknesses
  • Map marketing campaigns
A customer is asked for his or her postal code at the checkout, and this information is combined with population data and purchasing power data from MB-International and visualized on a map.

2 Simple Examples

Where do my customers come from?

In retail, postal boundaries are used to visualize catchment areas. A simple example: the customer is asked for the postal code at the DIY store checkout.

Added value with company-owned data

Many companies have customer data (address data) or proprietary data, such as sales territories or sales figures, with information on the postal code. This data is linked to our digital zip code boundaries and thus enables spatial relationships to be identified in a descriptive manner on a digital map. Additional data such as population, sociodemographic and purchasing power data from MBI can be added individually.
