Analytics provider Robling is mapping store locations against COVID-19 metrics from such sources as the Johns Hopkins Coronavirus Resource Center in order to help retailers make their reopening plans. As part of this, it’s providing a level of information for free to retailers.

The Store Reopening Analytics application is designed to help retailers navigate the challenges associated with reopening, including rehiring, scheduling and re-training staff; sourcing, allocating and shipping in-season merchandise; and implementing social distancing and hygiene protocols. For each store location, they gain insight into local case and fatality counts, local case and fatality trajectories, and state government mitigations and restrictions currently in place.

The app provides visualization of retailer and COVID-19 data using a zoomable nationwide map, heat maps, charts and tables. Users can filter the data by state, county, date and distance in miles from each store location. Users can also add additional enterprise data to the application, such as sales, inventory, customer, pricing, promotions and staffing data.

Retailers that share their store location data with Robling can receive tailored information. Those that don’t wish to share can use the application with preloaded data for approximately 1,600 shopping mall locations across the U.S.

Access to the standard application as well as one-time integration of a retailers’ store location data is available to retailers free of charge.
