Construction industry intelligence provider, Barbour ABI, announced today it has partnered with PLACEMAKE.IO in an effort to enhance the data offered to mutual clients.
PLACEMAKE.IO is a supplier of critical location data and analytics for the real-estate community.
According to a press release, the partnership will see Barbour ABI’s data embedded in PLACEMAKE.IO and will help mutual clients to understand and forecast construction, development, planning, the supply pipeline, and more.
The companies hope that the new partnership will ensure an even greater wealth of data is available to investors, suppliers, and other key players in the industry.
Dr. Chlump Chatkupt, CEO of PLACEMAKE.IO, said: “Clients require data-driven insights that can help them to achieve better outcomes.
“Of all of the factors that influence investment management, underwriting, and general location decision making, one of the most critical is market supply, which directly drives market dynamics such as absorption, performance, risk, and potential.
“And yet, market supply is seldom used by the industry, much less appreciated. Our partnership with Barbour ABI empowers clients to leverage unrivalled construction intelligence to make faster and more informed decisions with greater confidence.”
Adam Valentine, Group Director of Content & Operations at Barbour ABI, added: “We know how important our data is to the many players in the construction industry.
“Partnering with PLACEMAKE.IO is an exciting step for us as it not only enhances the data we are able to provide to our clients, but it means our data will also be accessible by PLACEMAKE.IO’s clients.
“The more high quality data the industry has access to the better the decisions that will be made and that benefits us all.”
