FindNearest is a store locator service designed for easy integration into any website. This service enables your customers to find their nearest physical outlet or stockist. It then provides them with a location map and profile for each outlet.

  • Always locate the nearest outlet, Regardless of where the customer is situated. The system starts at the selected suburb and expands the search area until a predetermined number of results are obtained. This means that, unlike systems that rely on suburb or post code matching, the FindNearest system always returns a result. It will never return a "no results for this location" message.

  • Locate outlets based on the type of store or the specific products or services carried. The FindNearest system differentiates between different types of stores, such as ‘authorised resellers’, ‘agents’ or ‘stockists’. It can also be integrated with stock management systems to identify stores that have specific products in stock.
  • Provide individual maps for each store. The maps provided by FindNearest are fully interactive and enable customers to zoom, pan and then print out a hard copy to take with them.
