Greater transparency

Instead of assessing retail performance on incomplete, anecdotal information, our scores deliver factual, reliable and timely metrics to validate, evaluate and benchmark properties across the entire Australian geographic hierarchy. With over 2.3 billion cards globally and over 160 million transactions per hour, MRLI is not a proxy for behaviour – it is actual spending behaviour.

MRLI will complement CoreLogic’s existing commercial property product suite and offer a new level of insight for commercial retail property. MRLI scores are provided from the mesh block level, all the way up through the Census hierarchy to the state level.

Five individual scores and a composite (upfront) score are provided for each location:

  • Monthly sales (value)
  • Number of monthly transactions (volume)
  • Average ticket size
  • Sales growth year over year
  • Stability ranking of the merchant turnover versus a year ago
  • UpFront Score derived from the five component scores above to provide a single measure of performance for a given location
