How FME Helps Commercial Businesses

One of the best ways to get to know people is by listening… to their data. Keep your marketing, services, and goods on trend and interesting by learning more about what the people want.

Get to Know Your Customers

Understanding your current and potential customers is critical to the success of your company. Whether you have detailed data about specific customers or broader data about their patterns and behaviours, you can use this to your advantage to help give them what they want.

Integrate Systems and Web Platforms

Data is everywhere! And it’s not just in your point of sale or scheduling system anymore. Data is all over the internet. With custom transformers that connect directly to API’s, you can easily pull in data from social media platforms like Yelp!

Generate Insights

Whether your company is involved in retail, restaurants, insurance, or real estate, data can help your company understand your market better. Data is the fuel for understanding when and how to make changes and will help you identify bottlenecks, time email campaigns, and understand the behaviour of your customers.

Gather Location Intelligence

How do you determine where to set up your next restaurant or shop? Location intelligence. Use spatial data integrated with local census information and other variables to make sense of where your business will prosper. Take it from McDonald’s - one of the largest restaurant chains in the world!

Bonava and Sweco

Bonava is one of the leading residential development companies in Northern Europe with employees around the world. To help simplify file sharing, Bonava worked with Sweco to bring their files into the cloud. With FME they were able to automatically rename, reorder, and upload files directly to A360. What was once a tedious, manual task was done so much more efficiently thanks to FME!

con terra GmbH

Food trucks have become extremely popular in business districts, but it can be difficult for the customer to know exactly when a food truck will be near them. Together with local food truck companies, con terra created a notification service with FME. Along with updates of food truck arrivals, they were able to notify employees of daily menus and specials.
