MATTHEWS, N.C. — Family Dollar is utilizing TAS Unity, a browser-based enterprise market knowledge system designed to aid retail real estate management from Trade Area Systems.
Since deployment in September 2012, Family Dollar has used TAS Unity across desktop, online and mobile platforms to improve visibility and collaboration for real estate decision-making. The solution specifically assists the chain in areas such as site evaluation, mapping and demographics, data viewing and editing, and capturing notes and photos for attachment to specific stores on the map retrieval system.
Family Dollar may extend use of TAS Unity to other areas of the company including marketing, pricing and store operations.
"We are currently in the process of creating a way to increase the knowledge of our preferred developers and brokers utilizing TAS,” said Brian Strickland, divisional VP of portfolio management at Family Dollar. “This was one of those developments we didn’t see coming; the users are finding tremendous value from the system and they want our real estate partners to have access to the same information.”
