While analyzing factors affecting the location of a new branch, it is always necessary to assess the likely performance of new branches/ATMs based on the presence of key decision variables, such as concentration of commercial areas, traffic patterns, workplace or homes of customers whose demographics and purchase behavior match a bank's target customer profile.



In today's highly competitive business environment, marketing is a customer-orientated operation that is essential for business success of any bank.
In general, marketing is a question of demand (customers) and supply (Financial products, Financial services, Customer services through branches and ATMs). Both demand and supply are easy to pinpoint to a geographical location. Therefore, these factors are interesting to analyze with the help of a GIS.

Granted a number of transactions that could only be done inside the banking halls some years ago in Nigeria are now done from ATMs or online banking. Nigerian banks however still conscious of the fact that realized that their customers  have legitimate reasons to visit their nearest branches to transact one business or the other hence the decision to provide information about their branch network on their websites. The question is, how useful are the online branch finders dotting the websites of most Nigerian banks?
