Case Study | CartoDB for BI and Analytics

Rilos leverages the Power of CartoDB with Business Analysis App Geomatrix 


Rilos is a business to business consulting firm, currently operating in 15 countries worldwide, exclusively focused on retail location intelligence solutions that provide strategic data analysis through a single technological platform. Combining up-to-date geographic, socioeconomic, and market data along with expert modeling of consumer behaviors, Rilos helps clients minimize risk, make more informed decisions, and optimize sales and networks.


Gathering, updating, standardizing and analyzing data is a complex, costly and time consuming process for retailers, commercial real estate developers, and consultants. In order to better serve a growing client base without the demand of additional employee resources, Rilos needed a solution that would allow clients to perform their own analysis with site studies and reports on demand.


Using CartoDB, Rilos created the Geomatrix platform, which provided Rilos clients an immediate online solution allowing them to perform their own studies and produce their own reports. By integrating CartoDB into the platform, Geomatrix can host large datasets (several millions of polygons and dots), process spatial queries, filter data according to specified parameters, and provide options to visualize results and thematic maps. The cloud-based platform can generate thousands of site studies for hundreds of clients at the same time. With Geomatrix delivering analysis directly to clients, Rilos was able to focus expertise on the creation of new custom content and functional modules.

Site studies that once took days to complete, are now accomplished in less than one minute using Geomatrix. The platform aggregates all required data, technologies, and algorithms to produce site study reports. With subscription access to the Geomatrix SaaS solution, retailers, commercial real estate developers, and consultants can quickly analyze a new project. Setting a range of parameters, clients can examine multiple scenarios, test different commercial concepts, and generate a ready-to-use analytical report to make informed decisions regarding rental or purchase of a new site. Clients can also audit the commercial environment of their existing point of sales portfolio, and compare the data with operational results. Correlation analysis determines which external parameters impact on point of sales, helping clients build more robust models for new expansion plans.

They can focus on their core business, with improved speed and security, identifying and assessing new project potential, while gaining an edge on direct competition. Geomatrix provides business intelligence that enables clients to define a clear strategy for existing and future commercial real estate portfolios.

Geomatrix helped us provide our clients with a ready-to-use online solution allowing them to perform their own studies, produce their own reports, and allowed Rilos to focus on the creation of highly values content for the platform.” Arnaud Trousset, Founder of Rilos.
