About Geomarketing Claro

In making strategic decisions, it is necessary to have as much quality information as possible due to its difficulty, since many external factors come into play. However, the quality of the information is not only important, it is also necessary that it be available and that it can be viewed easily. It is in this scenario where the platform of Geomarketing plays a fundamental role.

Geolocation as a market segmentation strategy provides added value in the concept of being applied to sales, where it is increasingly important to segment customers well to offer them what they are looking for and thus achieve an optimal service. It is an example of strategic decision making where geomarketing can help.

Results with Google Maps Platform

  • Support as a versatile tool to visualize geolocated information on a solid and powerful system for data management and analysis, transforming single data and figures into powerful business information.
  • It allows to relate business data to spatial data to provide context and allow a visual presentation of the map.
  • Geolocation supported by most modern devices and desktop browsers.
  • Delivery of information in a more timely and fast way to obtain the insight required to make business decisions.

Google Maps Platform products used

  • Maps JavaScript API: allows the visualization of the map itself. From this API, users can view any information results of the business through the Google Maps APIs that we want to implement.
  • Street View API: Insert real images with 360-degree panoramas, improving the user experience and saving the costs of traveling sales teams to the field to evaluate the potential of the site and favor the user's conquest.
  • Autocomplete (Places API): provides predictions based on search location in anticipation of full address typing. This system of validation of addresses and / or sites of interest, reduces the margin of error in typing and thus the margin of abandonment of the search.
  • Details (Places API): It offers details of the establishments and / or points of interest such as opening hours, rating, prices, etc. that is close to the information displayed and at the same time provides information on the location of existing customers and competitors.
  • Geocoding API: Convert addresses to geographic coordinates and vice versa to obtain precision of the data provided.


The challenges of the Geomarketing solution is the geolocation or georeferencing of information owned by Claro, corresponding to clients in order to represent them on the Google base map and measure spatial correlations with other relevant information sources: points of sale, competition , population projection, etc. and thus obtain a competitive advantage.

The main challenge of this project was the development of an intuitive platform capable of efficiently integrating large volumes of dispersed and localized information in different data sources, as well as the lack of databases that would show required information, such as data from the income and expenses of the Colombian population, and thus, infer on sociodemographic characteristics.

The visualization of the information, the data provided by the client, as extracted from different databases on a map, has allowed a much easier interpretation for the target user, providing a new vision of the situation. In fact, new opportunities and threats have been detected that previously the client was not able to appreciate, thus improving decision-making.


Servinformación has developed a scalable technological solution for Claro Colombia that integrates different sources of geographic information, with the client's own information, which can be uploaded to the platform autonomously. Creating a technological tool to review the socioeconomic influences on local populations to analyze if there is a correlation between the commercial offer and the predominant socioeconomic composition of the surrounding local populations. Managing to increase the conversion rate by directing a campaign in one way or another by geographic location.

Through a geocoding process, the data provided by Claro are transformed into coordinates, as was the case with current clients, which also contained commercial information, to later be segmented according to the strategy required for easy relative decision making. to the location and allow a better analysis of the market, planning the corporate strategy until its execution.
