Figure A - Customer Profile Analysis and Buffering • • By profiling customers, you get to understand where they are, how they are clustered, and you get to visualize the entire business landscape. Visual information is simply easier to digest. The example below is from a large distribution company in the Philippines, with a total of 1,574 direct customers. * Buffer Size = 10 Kilometer Radius from Center * Red Circle Buffers Proposed Sites * Blue Circle Buffers Existing Distribution Hubs PTI

Figure B - Customer Analysis Results & Results Table • • • • • The analysis resulted in the table below (Figure C.). In the current setup, the Distribution Centers (DC's) only cover 41% of the customers within a 10 Kilometer distance. The proposed sites increases the coverage to 87% of the existing customers of the this business. The changes will bring coverage to additional 567 customers within a 10 Kilometer distance. The fuel and time savings benefit are substantial. PTI
