How Dista Helps With Territory and Operations Management

Our location intelligence platform helps many businesses from different industries streamline territory and operations management. By leveraging crucial data, our robust system maps out areas that are serviceable and non-serviceable. The artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML)-based platform leverages data which is fed into our sales system and performs area planning for a territory and operations management.

A business can have a perfect location in a promising market; however, choosing the incorrect site at that location can significantly hamper the branch’s performance. A location determines how well you can serve that market by leveraging the natural consumer shopping patterns. Meanwhile, the site quality determines how visible and accessible you are to those people.
