What you can achieve with Spendmapp:
Track jobs and floorspace demand created by policy and investment decisions
Spendmapp data is 100% accurate, unlike the simulated data in most economic growth models. It is based on actual expense transactions by location, time and industry. Use accurate year-on-year growth data to track the change in floorspace demand and quantify the potential growth of employment as spending activity changes.
Confidently measure the economic impact of local events
Get immediate feedback on the success of your event. Compare events year-on-year. Measure, in exact dollar figures, the return on investment in music or sporting festivals, or the impact of natural disasters. Monitor the size of your night-time economy. Dig deeper and analyse the changes in spending by industry and location before, during and after your event.
Learn how to reduce escape expenditure
For the first time, local governments can measure the real volume and direction of their escape expenditure, and target planning to stop the loss. Spendmapp data helped the Shire of Broome to design a local commercial strategy that reduced escape expenditure from local shopping areas. Our app also helped Greater Geraldton identify local investment opportunities to divert their escape expenditure.
Benchmark your economy against other suburbs or municipalities
You can compare how you are tracking at a suburb or LGA level. Spendmapp uses an interactive mapping tool to visualise expenditure flows. Comparison metrics include escape expenditure, total expenditure, expenditure by industry and suburb, expenditure by resident and local populations, and expenditure by time of day.
