Spendmapp was built with a public good objective.

Major retailers and consulting firms like Geografia have been using banking data for years. It informs business decisions such as where to set up new stores, target new markets, or monitor long-term consumer trends. This has given them an edge in local planning and development negotiations, and significant insight into local and regional economic flows.

At Geografia, we think this power shouldn’t be limited to large corporations and believe it can be used by governments of all sizes to manage, develop and diversify their economies. We built Spendmapp so that local governments can directly interrogate real economic data themselves, using that information in negotiations with investors, to inform economic development strategies and to complete grant applications. This is based on one of our founding principles; to share ideas and knowledge with the public sector so that we can all benefit from better public policy decisions.

“Spendmapp is a revolutionary tool in economic development and strengthening regional economies such as ours. Having insights into where and why spending is occurring can help improve local retail performance. The available data quantity is huge and will prove invaluable in future economic decisions on behalf of our council and for our community. A massive thanks to the Spendmapp team who are always willing and able to assist in any way they can when analysing and reporting on this data.”
– Bess Winkley, Tourism & Community Development Officer, District Council of Cleve
