About Us

RS Metrics was founded in 2009 by executives with backgrounds in corporate and investor strategy consulting, satellite imagery, and geographic information systems. We are headquartered in Chicago, with a sales office in New York and production offices in Colorado and Colombo, Sri Lanka.

RS Metrics provides investor and corporate clients with proprietary insights and data based on quantitative analysis of satellite and aerial imagery, overlaid with other open source information such as store locations, demographics and climate data. We conduct large scale analysis of activity at most major retail chains, using our proprietary methodology and data models to produce valuable metrics:   

  • Measure year-over-year daily, weekly, monthly, and quarterly traffic growth
  • Identify inflection points and changes in momentum that drive stock price
  • Forecast transactions and comps
  • Get ahead of intra-period analyst upgrades/downgrades
  • Raw data to analyze traffic and market share growth by region, market, store format, promotion, competitive presence, etc.

RSM also provides historical and ongoing data and analysis of industrial production and employment growth for companies and facilities in manufacturing, energy, and commodities.

RSM partnerships with leading satellite imagery companies provide us with global coverage, cutting edge technical capabilities, and access to 5+ years of imagery archives for historical analysis. 

Our clients include many of the most well-respected investment firms on Wall St., some of the largest and most well-known US retailers and real estate investors/brokers, and other industrial companies, government agencies, and educational institutions.

From our off-the-shelf reports and indexes, to in-depth analysis and dedicated data feeds, we can get you the insights and data you need to make informed decisions about your business strategy, operations, and investments. Learn more about our products.
