Thanks, from the LOCUS Pro™ Team

We would like to thank everyone who helped us make the LOCUS Pro™ Conference a success, including all our clients, retailers, manufactures and consultants. We have already started to apply your requests, comments and suggestions into the latest version of LOCUS Pro™.  Bookmark and check this page periodically, since we are constantly upgrading LOCUS Pro™.


Download the latest LOCUS Pro™View Update Files

LOCUS Pro™View is constantly being upgraded, so check periodically for new updates!   Download the latest version by selecting the appropriate link below.  Note that you must have a fully active version of LOCUS to use any upgrades. We also provide a fully operational trial version, so call us!

As you already know, LOCUS Pro™View is the premier gravity model in use today.  It was originally designed in 1975 and has undergone constant development and refinement since its inception.  LOCUS Pro™View has proved itself during the past 35 years, encompassing literally hundreds of thousands of sales projections.

Combining the LOCUS Pro™View software with a personal or laptop computer and a professional market analyst trained in our procedures results in highly accurate sales projections.  The system is capable of modeling large metropolitan areas as well as small towns or single sites.  LOCUS Pro™View is being used by many large corporations, on a lease basis, as well as our in-house staff. We provide initial training as well as ongoing support.

The latest version of LOCUS™ has a new name. LOCUS™ ProView
