Updated Business Analyst Online Contains Much to Love

 by Brenda Wolfe

The latest features added to Esri Business Analyst Online provide more market exploration capabilities to aid in site evaluation, marketing decisions and other location-based decisions.  You can now compare sites more quickly, view your sites over thematic maps, and use Bing business search to find competitors or complementary businesses. 

Here is a bit more detial about what’s new…  

Bing Business Search

Need to know where the competition is?  Or what businesses you can target for your services?  Now you can search for any type of business using the business search capabilities of Bing.  The Bing business search box is located on the Research Market tab.  

Enter any type of business and an optional location in the search box.

Bing provides results that you can further filter before adding the locations to the map or exporting them to Excel.  You can save the business locations as a layer under My Layers if you want to reuse the search results in the future. 

Compare Sites

When evaluating potential locations, usually a few key demographics are most important.  The new Compare Sites option, on the Select Location tab, is designed to save time by allowing you to quickly find the most promising sites before generating more comprehensive report packages and comparisons.  Simply create your sites and click the Compare Sites button for a quick comparison of key demographic variables.

Displaying Sites over Color-Coded Maps

Sites can now be displayed over color-coded maps allowing you to see how the sites relate to the underlying demographics.  Simply create a site and then go to the Market Research tab to create a color-coded map. Your site will remain displayed over the color-coded map until you turn it off.  You can also add sites to color-coded maps by selecting them from My Sites. 

Control the Appearance of Sites

Want to make a more appealing screen capture of your site?  Or turn off the fill color of a site for easier viewing over color-coded maps?  Now you can change the color, transparency, fill options, and border thickness of any site.  Simply select “Edit Site Colors” from the pin menu to get the menu for changing site style options.

Favorite Reports

If you frequently run the same set of reports, you can tag those reports as “Favorites” on the Get Reports tab and run them with a single click of the button.  The next time you create a site, click Run Favorites and your list of reports will be submitted as an order.

And much more…

I have only touched on the top five major features, but there are many more refinements that you can read about in more detail on the Business Analyst Online Resource Center

Have fun with the new goodies!

Brenda
