CitiQuants.com New Enterprise Expansion Platform Engine Generates Corporate Expansion and Site Selection Analytics on Cities in Seconds

A New Engine and Publishing Standard Creates 2-Sided Marketplace to Make Cities' Decisional Data Easy for Businesses to Calculate, Rank and Benchmark Cities Competitiveness and Expansion Attractiveness

MIAMI, FL and COCONUT GROVE, FL--(Marketwired - Oct 22, 2015) - CitiQuants, a startup that captures decisional data on human capital and operating cost on cities for rapid corporate expansion and site selection decisioning, announces today the launch of its site selection platform to include its eKlekos corporate expansion engine, its DDED publisher and its cloud solution. (www.CitiQuants.com).

With 205 cities from 30 countries standardized in the CitiQuants platform at launch, the company's first talent and cost solutions focus on the voice BPO sector, with six additional innovation-driven sectors. Enterprises can now immediately subscribe to the platform and perform comparative benchmarking between the Latin American and Caribbean Nearshore with the offshore markets of Indian and the Philippines, as well as key onshore U.S. and Canadian cities.

Using its new data-driven economic data (DDED) publisher, its eKlekos enterprise city analytics pricing engine and its cloud solution, the CitiQuants Platform allows the enterprise to generate talent and location price benchmarking in seconds. The CitiQuants platform provides value at a fraction of the cost currently delivered by traditional management consulting, audit advisory, and site selection consulting firms.

At the launch announcement, Philip Peters, CoFounder and CEO said, "The Citiquants platform functions as a two-sided marketplace, where cities, modeled, as 'sovereign firms' are sellers of their locations and the enterprise as buyers of the location." Peters continued, "Our model defines all cost data such as real estate, talent, utility, communication and travel as 'price' signals on the location and all data points are analyzed as 'assets.' This is all built on the CitiQuants big data notion that the 'quantified city,' must become 'small data' or decisional data to drive a city's competitiveness and appeal to the enterprise," Peters concluded.

Economic development agencies use the CitiQuants proprietary DDED publishing protocol to upload its standardized data sets to the CitiQuants cloud, where it is analyzed and normalized in real-time by its eKlekos engine for dynamic access by enterprise subscribers. CitiQuants also captures data from the web and through a global network of crowd sourced independent researchers.

Subscribers can seamlessly select, rank, rate, predict and benchmark single or multiple cities where they have existing operations or have future expansion location plans. Rather than competing with the traditional incentive-driven paradigm, the CitiQuants disruption is premised on the notion that data is a city's "intrinsic asset" with which they can effectively compete, if it is accurate, reliable and fresh.

Given the time and search cost savings increasingly demanded by the enterprise, and the growth-driven economic development priorities of cities, the CitiQuants platform promises to create a digital sweet spot for solving the growth performance needs of both parties.
