Northern has signed-up to Growth Flag to help better understand the transport needs of businesses and their employees across the North of England.
The software will also help the train operator gain an insight into the supply chains of businesses that work for the rail industry and those based in and around its station premises.
Rob Warnes, strategic development director at Northern, said: “This partnership with Growth Flag is an important step in our long-term vision to make a positive impact for the North in all we do and for all we serve.
“Using their extensive data intelligence, we can better prepare for the future and prioritise business activity in areas where growth potential is best. Just like our drivers, we need to know what’s coming further down the track.”
Richard Jeffery, founder partner of Growth Flag, said: “Growth Flag brings together Red Flag Alert’s background in data insights, with the Growth Company’s expertise in delivering inclusive and environmentally sustainable growth.
"The tool offers a unique opportunity for businesses to gain an in-depth understanding of where growth is taking place across the UK, highlighting opportunities in areas that may not have been previously considered.
“This is a very exciting partnership, and we look forward to supporting Northern to incorporate this insight into its vision and strategy going forward.”
Public sector organisations across the North of England such as Local and Combined Authorities, Local Enterprise Partnerships (LEPs), as well as colleges and universities are also using Growth Flag to understand their local economy and support growth sectors.
