Below is an overview of the most important new features of RegioGraph. All versions of RegioGraph include the latest digital maps and comprehensive, up-to-date data on potential, such as purchasing power and information on inhabitants and households.
Starting in 2021, you’ll be able to plan the workload of your sales force and customer support directly using RegioGraph. Thanks to the new calculation wizard you will obtain a practical value for how many visits per year and employee are possible. Compare this with the desired visits of your ABC customers and create a realistic basis for your sales territory planning and the goal alignment for each team member.
RegioGraph 2021 calculates a an index or a score according to your criteria and weighting. This is how you can find regions that have high purchasing power and at the same time customers who have already purchased product A. Or you evaluate your locations according to factors such as sales area and target group in the area. The higher the score, the better the performance.
RegioGraph offers a wide range of display options to help you analyze your data in the best possible way. Different value distributions can make it difficult to find the right settings. A histogram has therefore been integrated into the display set up to visually show the frequency distribution of your data, making it easier to divide it into meaningful categories.
If you work on regional level, you can cut all layers of a project to the selected area, such as a state or your individual sales territory. So you can work only with map sections or regions that you need.
Communicate with your team via the new notifications function to exchange information directly online, referring to a map section. For example, you can point out current figures or new customers. In addition, the search, filter and sort functions have been added to the overall table.
Show changes to your territories at the click of a button both during and after planning. Affected areas are shaded on the map and displayed in the associated table. This quickly reveals the impact of your changes, allowing you to select the best planning scenario.
The add-on's features has been expanded compared to the previous year's version. Legends and labels from RegioGraph projects are imported exactly as they are into the add-on and can be shown or hidden at any time. Many additional analyses can now be visualized, such as delivery flows and drive-time zones. A complete table with filter functionality is also available for each layer.
Data tables can be easily imported from the Clipboard in a text-based format. This ensures that all data is comprehensively imported. You can then specify the desired formatting settings for your data columns.
This new feature saves you time when preparing your maps. After finalizing the contents of your various maps, you can then specify the formatting for one of the maps. Next, select the option "Transfer layer format" in order to transfer the formatting settings from one layer to another. This ensures your results are presented with a consistent layout.
Beginning with the 2020 version of RegioGraph, you can adjust data in your tables more quickly and with fewer errors. A new filter function allows you to work in a table excerpt rather than in the original table. This means you can apply your changes exclusively to the data area that you select. You can then easily see the alterations you made after returning to the original table.
Share project results online with your colleagues using your company server. Grant access rights to whomever you choose. Your team can then view your data analyses and sales maps from various device types while on the go. This keeps everyone on the same page, leading to faster, more informed decision-marking.
Keep all important information in sight when optimizing your territories. The simultaneous display of a zoomable map and a filterable table with a chart helps you navigate each optimization step. Use the chart to select the data columns you want to compare. The map then automatically adjusts to display this. Evaluate optimization scenarios using the sorting and filtering options available in the new planning view.
Selectively lock parts of your territory structure to prevent unwanted changes when carrying out optimizations. For example, use this feature to optimize just the sales territories surrounding your company location or a specific region when adding a new team member. This gives you more control over the planning process.
Get up and going with the software more quickly. A new user interface conveniently groups all tools in the menu ribbon based on task type. RegioGraph 2018 now more closely resembles the MS Office environment thanks to color adjustments.
Benefit from expanded features and usabilty when in table design view, including a new zoom option. You can now link layer tables via column values in addition to geographic location. This allows you to assign data on external key-account locations to the region of your choice.
Illuminate the most important traits in your data. When displaying map objects according a certain attribute, you can limit the number of objects shown by a specific minimum and maximum frequency. All objects falling outside of the specified bounds will then be grouped as “other”. You can also apply a filter that dynamically adjusts the displayed traits.
Create and display driving zone sizes based on the properties of individual locations. Using the location layer column, you can specify that one or more driving zones be calculated for any chosen location.
RegioGraph Strategy employs an algorithm to position any specified number of sites such that market coverage is optimal. Use this feature to add more locations to an existing branch network or develop an entirely new network.
This new visualization option brings clarity to maps with a large number of locations. A cluster tree is automatically used to display large numbers of locations in close geographic proximity. The cluster tree automatically changes based on zoom level in order to ensure an optimal presentation of the locations in question.
You can now more easily edit and work with the table drafts associated with many of the software's editing and linking tools. You can also quickly link data across layers (e.g., locations per region) using a drag & drop feature. Formulas, column characteristics, metadata and layer statistics are easy to view and adjust.
RegioGraph Planning and later versions allow you to place grids (e.g., 100 x 100 meter cells) on the map in order to work more efficiently with levels more detailed than postcodes (but less detailed than individual addresses). This is extremely helpful when analyzing local areas. Many official bureaus of statistics in Europe now offer socio-demographic data at this grid level, which allows you to easily import this information into RegioGraph's grid layers.
We've improved and modernized RegioGraph's interface. The software's various tools are grouped according to task in a Windows ribbon. The software's new project navigation allows you to individually customize the various work elements, including maps, charts, legends, layout tables, etc. This lets you control your workspace even when dealing with complex documents.
We added a new quick filter feature to the software’s powerful data selection tools. At the click of a mouse, you can filter the visible objects on the map using the specified filter criteria. These filter criteria operate dynamically to changes in the base data, such as when processing updates.
RegioGraph 2017 includes a completely new chart feature. This tool gives you numerous new options, such as displaying multiple data rows in a chart, using a secondary Y-axis, labeling individual segments and automatically grouping minor values to an “other” segment.
