A Quick Note
Webster Pacific has been providing strategic and financial consulting services for over 10 years. We had a mini-celebration earlier this year to mark this milestone. My partner Susan Beans and I wanted to reach out to our network and share this news, as well as to give you the elevator pitch on what we do. Here goes:
We provide consulting services in three areas: business strategy, business intelligence and interim-CFO services. We do this work because we love the clarity that a data-driven approach can provide, we love solving problems and making progress and, finally, we love serving our clients.
Over half of our work for the past seven years has been in the realm of K-12 education, in both charter schools and private schools.
Recently, we have had the opportunity to develop an expertise in work that helps our client make better site selection decisions. This work involves geographic software, supply research and demographic demand information. We are calling this work demand-supply-catchment analysis.
A generic example of our work follows below, but for now I will close and say thank you for your support.
Example of Demand-Supply-Catchment Analysis
The shaded map above shows the density of a certain age group from households with income over a threshold amount per square mile in various neighborhoods in the Great Boston Area. Triangles represent competitive retail locations, grouped into two tiers of quality. The red ring represents a “catchment,” based upon a particular drive time around one particular retail location (the green triangle).
A full catchment analysis would calculate the demand-supply imbalance for a catchment around each neighborhood and rank the neighborhoods based upon attractiveness (i.e. the greatest imbalance).
Using this approach, Webster Pacific can help clients in a variety of businesses to navigate site selection and better understand the markets they are considering.
