Why See Source

See Source was born from Better City, nationally award-winning economic development consulting and implementation company. This data set and approach was born out of the need to help Better City’s clients understand who their exiting visitors are, which of them spend the most money and where to find more visitors like them. There are other companies who provide similar data, but their solutions are very expensive, hard to interpret and narrow in their scope.  See Source provides copious amounts of data that is easy to interpret and manipulate because it’s customized to the needs of every customer via a personalized, live dashboard.

We have access to cell phone GPS data of more than 200 million cell phones in the US and validate accuracy our geolocation data through a double-ping verification process. Our consumer spending data is derived from about a third of all US credit card spending, assuring it’s an accurate representative sampling.  The See Source demographic data comes from the most reliable sources, such as the American Community Survey.

Our proprietary combination and analysis of the data sets displays the information in an easy to interpret formats that are relevant to your industry and unique circumstances.  We are anti-cookie cutter.

Each customer receives their charts, graphs, tables and maps on a customized dashboard.  This means you will get the information you want, arranged in the easiest way for you to read.  See Source will set it up however you would like and you can change it at any time.  

Most charts are also capable of being manipulated by the customer to see specific pieces of information and over specific periods of time.  Our Business Intelligence (BI) platform partner has been ranked #1 by PC Magazine and Database Trends & Applications for three straight years.

We pride ourselves in having the best data, that is the easiest to interpret and manipulate at the lowest price.  It’s a bold claim, and we invite you to do your own analysis to verify it!
