Scenario Scoring is a SCOUT-based tool that allows organizations to use their forecasting models to understand the net effect of simultaneous location openings, relocations, or closures. By adding or removing up to 10 locations per scenario, you can test different market planning options to identify the best strategy.


What will the Scenario Scoring tool do for me?

See a more complete picture of network dynamics.

While single site scoring allows you to understand how a new site interacts with existing sites, Scenario Scoring allows you to evaluate the impact of changing up to 10 sites simultaneously. The result is a more complete view of what will happen when multiple network changes occur.

Identify which new locations should be opened first.

If you plan to open two of an eventual five new locations in a market, which locations should you open first? Score different combinations of unit openings to identify the best net contribution and maximize cash flows to fund future openings.

“Rightsize” your network by identifying the best candidates for closure.

Quantify the net impact of existing location closures to rightsize your location network. Scenario Scoring factors in not only the loss associated with the closure, but also the sales transfer to remaining locations so you can determine if a closure is the right decision for your business.

Understand how relocations affect performance.

As trade areas shift over time, you may need to relocate certain units to maximize performance. Use the Scenario Scoring tool to understand how network performance changes as you reposition your locations, including the effect on both existing locations and planned future locations.
