Artificial Intelligence powered retail closure predictions

At Retailsphere we track all retail closures nationwide. In fact, we track and log every closure by date, time and the specific details of every closure. While tracking and scraping data on each individual closure, some unique conclusions and trends become evident. Not all closures are created equally. Our artificial intelligence algorithms work behind the scenes to create lists of data points so you can make informed decisions crucial for a retail-focused business. Are your tenants or clients on the verge of closing their doors? Do you have a bad pairing of shopping center and tenant based on demographics? There are retailers more likely to go dark then others. How long after a major bankruptcy announcement before an individual unit closes its doors?

These are just some of the questions we are generating answers for at Retailsphere.
